Howdy from Southern Illinois

Hello. I am new to the DSLR market and have spent alot of time researching camera's. I am finding this site useful in many ways. I used to have a minolta film slr but never used it to its potential. I have been using my point and shoot camera while traveling for work for several years as I found it more convient, but am missing out on taking better pictures with a dslr. I have basically decided on a Pentax. I have a few quick questions to confirm my decision I will post in the approriate thread.
What else, I am thirty, like to mountain bike, hunt, I travel alot for work and look forward to reading more on this site

Look forward to your contributions here. I hope that 'basically' is a 'definitely'

Hi welcome to this forum.
I hope you will enjoy it!

It took me some time to decide which Pentax camera I should buy.
I wanted a weather resistant camera, I am as a biologist a lot outside (so no K-x) and had to decide between the K20d and K-7.
A friend gave me the advised to feel the camera's. This was a big help for me.
The K20d was too big for my small hands and the K-7 was much better!

Good luck and hope to see your pictures soon!

Welcome here.
Enjoy shopping for the right camera for you.
I'm sure the K-x will not be far off from what you'd be after...
