Pentax on TV

Sort of. I was having trouble sleeping last night, and started channel surfing. I ended up on the QVC electronics show, and the announcer showed me a "coming up later" teaser for QVC's "first" DSLR offering. It turned out to be a Pentax K200D kit! I'm not sure if that's good or bad or neither. It just wasn't what I expected....

Any kind of publicity is very good.

I just checked Alexa's rankings, comparing pentax to nikon, canon, Fuji and Olympus. Needless to say, the 'tax came last. :ugh:

Actually I just checked the QVC site out of curiosity, and sure enough, there is Pentax on the front page. It's a K200D kit, sure enough including the 18-55mm ALII, 50-200mm, the D-BG3 grip and Corel Paintshop Pro for $998 QVC price, and then take off $125 in rebates.

Hmmm...

About halfway down I suggested a somewhat similar k200d kit. I don't know if they're listening to us or not(I doubt it, it's likely a coincidence), but it would be kewl like the other side of the pillow if they were.

Why would you need a K1000D, considering you get so much kit for that money?

That was just the thread title, I think.

My suggestion in the thread that I linked to was that Pentax should come up with a K200D kit with 18-250 + Paintshop, what they're selling on QVC is the K200D with 18-55+50-200 + Paintshop.
