So far the K10D is the most popular digital body, which is not suprising.
K20D seems to have taken the pole position now, by an overwhelming lead of four votes.

The K7 is catching up though. Won't be long before it takes the lead. May be some time before I upgrade though (like 20 months or so).

Bump

This poll will be around a few more days before I ask the mods to lock it since there is someone in Adelaide with a K-x.
Lets leave it open a little longer since the K-x isn't hitting the streets in any numbers yet.

20 months huh? So that won't be long? The numbers speak for themselves. The K10 and the K20 are dominating IMHO because more people are buying them right now and they have come down in price with the K7 fully in the pipeline. The higher end Pentaxes offer more features than the entry level models and IQ is good as compared to other DSLR'S. Yea the newer K2000 and the Kx may have improved noise at higher ISOs, but remember, these are ALL DSLRs which have the bigger sensors anyway. A big step over even the best of the tiny compacts' sensors. Sure technology will surpass the sensors in the K10 and K20, but these are still Pentaxes top of the line cameras (at least when they were released) and the newer "entry level" Pentax DSLR,s are not offering the "pro" fetures of these cameras.(The K200 at least has weather sealing and the top mounted LCD). The K7 is the top of the line and when it is replaced, it will come down in price and overtake the K10 and K20.

im surprised at the number of istD users thus far.
For what the istD cost me surely I'll keep it in use!

I bought my wife an istD from Ritz Camera when the Pentax DSLR first appeared in the market. I knew she'd love it since she had several lenses from her K1000 and Ricoh. For body, case, memory card, and taxes I paid $1500. I waited to buy myself a K100D when it was under 1/3 as costly.

The istD is now being used for my astrophotography. I also have a filterless K110D for nebulas and IR. K100D with Tamron 18-200 is my every day camera. K100D with Pentax Macro is my closeup camera. K100D Super with sensor cleaning is my interchangeable lens camera for everything else.

Four votes but five DSLRs. I need to update my signature file.
