Weight Compared

I have the Sigma APO 100-300mm f4 EX DG. I consider it a big, heavy lens. It's a lot of weight to carry around all day. It is 8.8" long and weighs 3.2 lbs. The Nikon 70-200mm f2.8 VR also weighs 3.2 lbs and it is 8.5" long. By comparison, the Pentax DA* weighs about 1.7 lbs and is 5.4" long.

Some people might call that "over an inch longer and almost half a pound heavier".
30mm is actually 1 & one fifth of an inch.

If he is going to switch brands, forget the noink. Go for a Fuji s5 pro. Same body as the d200, same flash system but a so much better sensor. I was thinking about one when i decided to sell the canon kit, but decided on pentax instead, hopefully a better choice for me.
Hmm..that's true. The Fuji S5 can use Nikon lenses and the skin tones from that sensor are supposedly lots better than other cameras'. Not as fast as the D200, but for portrait/wedding photography, that won't matter that much.

So there ya go, PentaxShooter. That's your next camera. Now sell me that 43ltd ;-)

I have tried my momīs nikon d80 on occasion and IMO it has a nice weight and feel to it. With the lenses i tried on it, the tamron 17-50 2,8 and a nikkor 85 1,8 it is very fast and direct.

If you need more camerabodies, why not, although it doubles the LBA, and if you deside to stop using your k10d as well donations are most welcome

Btw Iīm very happy with my k100d.
