Purchasing k10d

Hi guys,

I'm an ex repentant pentaxian, having sold my k100d for Canon.
I'm not happy with my 30d, for the ergonomy and the lack of SR ( for me it's needed ).

So I'm trying to sell my Canon stuff to get a K10D.

My question is, is it worth to get it now ( with the rebate I can get for 520$ ), or is it worth to wait for new models to come out? I would still take the k10d, since it's the right price for me, but do you think it will keep going down in price, or this would be anyway the minimum?

Check out my thread from 12/17 titled K20D Random Thoughts. Lots of folks weighing in on your question. Ultimately, only you can decide based on your needs.

JMO - I would think it would be worth it to get it now, if you want a camera in the near future. It's a great deal anyway.

I can't imagine it getting any less expensive as they would simply be cannibalising sales of the K100D. Whether Pentax announces a new rebate is also an open question. Certainly, once production stops there will be a small window where it will be discounted somewhat. ch
