Many thanks to all that gave advice. My new camera... a K10D and it is on the way! I ordered a Pentax reconditioned demo from Cameta Camera on Amazon. Body only, factory restored to new condition and the full Pentax warranty. $399.95 and I got free shipping.

I saw a few other used-like new ones that ran about $14 dollars less. I know Cameta Camera well and have always been treated in a very professional manner by them. I figured a few extra bucks spent buying the camera off of them is worth the peace of mind.

Oh boy I can hardly wait until it gets here! Supposed to be here as early as the 30th of this month.

Great choice.

First thing to do is take a black (underexpose) shot for hot pxiels.

Good luck and have fun shooting...

Thats a great price for a K10D with 1 yr warranty. Wish they have the demo unit for K20D. Great choice over the K200D, Enjoy!

is in-house Cameta warranty, or true Pentax factory warranty?

I have a k10, but might consider a k20 refurb when available and depending on the above.

True Pentax warranty! Cameta Camera is one to watch for the reconditioned deals. They run them quite often. I have no affiliation with them other than being a customer. Here is their web site:

Digital Cameras | Cameta Camera - Home

ebay store:

Amazon store:

They sell on both eBay and Amazon. I believe they also sell over the phone. They have always treated me great! Check out their used gear section too.
