Nice kit pen123!

Good luck with your sale (what's the exchange rate? 10 U.S. cents to the Canadian dollar?)

j/k The U.S. dollar will be falling fast, and if I didn't just purchase a K20 i'd be looking really hard at your offer.

Hello. I went away from Pentax about a yr ago, due to low light AF performance. I do about 10-15 paying events over the summer & was starting to miss shots. I went over to the Nikon system. I was hoping that The K7 would be up to par, but it's not when you add a flash. Not much difference to the K20. Don't get me wrong the K7 is very nice, solid feel & great pic quality, Just not what I need right now. I don't have the $$$ to have 2 set ups right now...that would be nice.

I just knew you were a Nikon user!

I'd just love a D700 and the accessories if I had the budget to go along with it.

What do you mean that the setup is not up to par when you add a flash? Does it mean that without the flash the AF is good, but not when there is a flash attached?

Just curious, and I'm sure it won't affect your sale... If you don't want to answer here pm would be appreciated

I believe the OP is talking about Pentax's TTL flash performance. I've used both Nikon and Pentax systems, Nikon's TTL is much more consistent.

I am surprised at how little action this is seeing. Let me know if my prices are too high.
