Hi

New Member, first time poster, shor time lurker, Pentax User since 1998
Bought my first Pentax back in 98 (ZX-50), bought 2nd body the *ist film 2 years ago, and now I am moving on to Digital when the K10D is released (I pre-ordered from Adorama)

Name's Jon...Found a link via DPreview.com's pentax SLR discussion area.

Nice to find a place w/ Pentax Enthusiasts...


Looking forward to learning new things here..

nice to meet you Joh

I am like you, waiting or the k10 as I just secured some cash for its arrival.
I think I might wait for a user report or test before I finally jump though.
I think the only thing that would stop me from buying it is poor noise performance.

let us know when yours arrives

cheers

I waited too, well waited to get a hold of the camera in my hands. I wanted the *ist D when it was first released, but like the *ist Film, I found it too small for my hands...Waited impatiently, and after 2 years of going to the Expo, and complaining to the reps..."when are you briging out a new DSLR body?!" I almost jumped ship to Nikon when they brought out the D200.

ray of hope came out when the K DSLR bodies came out, and then the bomb.....
10 MP body at Photokina (I think)....

then.....more and more info came about...

Final straw came when I was able to play w/ it at the photo expo, and that following Monday, went out to Adorama (bout 2 blocks away from my Job) and placed my pre-order (im number 51)

The dude that helped me remembered me from when I bought my *ist body from him a few years ago...

he was like "damn, I gotta be careful w/ the knowledgeable customers"
Before I talked to him, he was selling a Rebel XTi to a couple going on vacation, selling them extra stuff....I was just chuckling inside....heh...

anywhoo..placed my order for the k10 body, extra battery and the Grip.

Prelim shots (i've seen on DPreview) on the ISO 1600 was really good (on the beta firmware too) . I think i've used film over ISO 800 once....

For the price and what you get, this camera will be the value leader in that range...hands down...
