That's an extremely broad question! Could you at least say what features you are looking for, what price ranges you are looking at, what options you've been looking at and how you feel about them, etc?

Pentax K20D 14.6MP DSLR
Pentax DA 12-24/4
Pentax DA* 16-50/2.8
Pentax DA* 50-135/2.8
Sigma APO 150-500/5-6.3

Marc is right. We need a LOT more info for an intelligent response.

I'd go for the 1Ds3 + 28-300L (Hey, you didn't say anything about a budget...)

well I looked at your signature and it seems like you are a pro... so forget the other comment.

if you want to replace your old film camera with a new digital at your level I would get the best... for now the K20D next month the K-7
