What to post in the DSLR section (Samsung DSLRs may also be discussed here)

Please limit posts in this forum only to those discussing Pentax Digital SLRs apart from those that have their own dedicated forums

All lens-related topics go in their respective forum here, and all photo-related conceptual questions should go in the General Photography section. All Camera , studio and lens accessories should go here. All Field accessories such as Tripods, Heads, Bags, etc should go here.

Additionally, as you may or may not know, Samsung DSLRs are merely 'rebadged' Pentax bodies, and so are the lenses.

Since some users don't know this, however, and there are obviously a few differences in Samsung stores and camera services. We no longer have a dedicated section for Samsung, however, as it was stagnant for over two years. Thus, all Samsung-related DSLR topics may be posted in our "Pentax DSLR Discussion" section!

Samsung vs. Pentax model names:

GX-20 = K20D
GX-10 = K10D
GX-1L = *ist DL2
GX-1S = *ist DS2

While only some of the SMC Pentax-DA lens series has been released as "Schneider D-XENON" for Samsung, the lenses work interchangeably. Even older Pentax quality glass will work on Samsung!
