* If you donít like the fact that the K20D is backward compatible with around twenty-four millions lenses sold by Pentax since the beginning of their first single lens reflex camera, then you donít want the K20D.

* If you donít need or will never need a flash sync for studio photography, donít get the K20D.
Some points:

Backward compatibility?
If Pentax would add an aperture lever again: YES!
Otherwise an Olympus or Canon dslr would do it the same way....

Flash?
If Pentax could stand the voltage of old flashes like my Mewtz 45 CT-1: YES!

Pricewise:
If the new Pentax isn't far below the Oly E-3 it will be hard to sell the new ones numerously....
This it my alternative at least....

Thanks for the opportunity of letting me announce that I am in the process of writing guides for the K20D and the K200D. I met with Pentax management last week, and I was able to obtain a K20D and a K200D for a short time.

The books should be out about the same time as the camera and maybe even sooner.
