The K110D is a gimme right now

While I wait for Dell to get some K10s in and to ship mine I've been looking at the new rebates from Pentax.

(I posted this over at the DPReview site too)

The K110 is selling with 18-55 kit lens at many places (reasonably quality retailers) right now for around $450 (a couple retailers for $440). If you buy the 50-200 lens at the same time the rebate goes up to $150. For about $525 after rebate you've got a terrific starter slr kit that will cover about any situation that a newbie will encounter from 18mm to 200mm.

I know, I know, you should get the K100 for it's SR but still, the K110 is the Pentax to compare to the D40 Nikon rather than the K100. The D40 has been highly reviewed everywhere but more important new owners are raving about it, all without SR. I have SR on my Panasonic FZ20 and love it but I could do without since my low-light shots are invariably on a tripod.

The bottom line is I'm tempted to cancel the Dell order for the K10 and go for this entry-level K110 system for a while. At that price it's simply a steal.

That's not a bad deal at all... If you have steady hands and/or a tripod, you would be good to go until your ready for the K10..

Just my 2cents

Wow, the pre-holiday rebate got even better. I bought the K100D and DA50-200 (separately) to get a $100 rebate.

However, I would miss that SR on a K110D. ISO400, f2.8, 1/6 sec beater 28 mm lens
