New camera: Pentax K10D, Nikon D80, Canon 450D, Pentax K200D ???

Hi all,

due to the excellent USD conversion rate for EURO, it's probably worth buying some equipment in the US.
In Germany, we have quite a good site to find the cheapest prices: Preisvergleich bei idealo.de
...including user reviews and reviews from third parties...

Is there something similar in the US?

Ciao

Not exactly the same as idealo.de, but both NexTag and Dealtime offer something similar. Just enter the name and model number of the camera or whatever ("Pentax K10D," for example) into the search block near the top of either site, click on the search button, and you'll get a list of prices from various sources.

If you're hunting for user reviews, I've found that Amazon.com is perhaps the best source for that. Often always a good number of reviews there.

By the way, welcome to the forum.

Thanks, Stewart.
Seems that camera bodys have almost the same price as here in Germany (if I add shipping cost). Probably lenses are cheaper.

Very good camera reviews I found at Digital Camera Reviews and News: Digital Photography Review: Forums, Glossary, FAQ

Digital cameras, all other cameras and everything photographic from Adorama Camera
B&H Photo Video | Digital Cameras, Camcorders
BeachCamera.com (once had the k10d for $500 after rebate)
Amazon.com: Online Shopping for Electronics, Apparel, Computers, Books, DVDs & more

i've never bought anything from nextag or dealtime, so i don't know about them.
and if you're intending to get an 10-mp-range camera, get the k10d or the nikon d80. you can probably get the k10d for cheaper and you will immediately be a pentaxian! and you will be a WHOLE lot happier with the k10d (enthusiast camera) than the k200d (beginner camera) and they are pretty much for the same price!
