As Pentaxian, if you were to jump ship, Nikon, Canon, Sony, or?

I just sold the last of my Pentax gear and got my Nikon D7000 Tuesday. I am very happy so far with AF speed and reliability as well as an assist lamp that works when it is supposed to. I have the 18-200 VR and AF-S 35 1.8 and am very impressed especially with the high ISO capability and low light performance of the prime lens. My SB-600 speedlight, Demb flip it/diffuser and AF-D 5o 1.8 are on the way and I can't wait!:D

I don't remember stating any of the cameras were incapable of pro quality images in the right hands. If that was the only criteria by which to choose a camera the manufacturers could have stopped R&D and never role out new models.

I decided to wait for K-30 reviews as AF speed and accuracy are important to me. I am willing to forego some of the K-5's high end features for this at least temporarily and then may buy the K-5 replacement when it comes out. I am also wondering if the SDM motor in my lens will be a bottleneck in AF speed with the new bodies.

I sold my K-10D and Tamron 18-250 last week (only have my DA* 16-50 left) and almost bought a Canon 7D today. The K-5 is off my list due to slow low light AF and the D7000 due to over exposure issues. I am trying to hold out for K-30 reviews.

Agreed. Hands on test before I buy as I just sold my K10D and a lens and only have my DA* 16-50 left which I am thinking about selling and jumping ship.

Pop Photo's review does indicate 'sluggish low light AF" as a con for the K5 in it's review so their is validity to your argument. This has taken the K-5 off my list and why I am curious about the K-30 AF "potential improvements". Maybe they will get this right in the K-3?

The K-30 looks like it will be a great camera but I can't help but feel sorry for K-5 users when I read about the improvements to AF. This makes me want to hold out for the K-5 replacement even more.

Coming from a K10 it would be hard to go without a top LCD but as one poster pointed out there may be room for a small one to the right of the mode dial. If this has better AF than the K-5 it still might be my next camera even without top LCD but only if WR is confirmed.

Wide angle f2.8 zoom...Tamron, Pentax or Sigma?

I forgot to mention that I have to order online as I am in a small Canadian city with no camera stores near me. I see the Sigma 18-50 EX DC for a good price at Cameta. Is that the older non-HSM version? It is listed as a Macro lens on the Sigma site unless it is an even older version. Looks like I would have no warranty though as I am in Canada.

I want a fast (continuous f2.8) wide zoom for low-light, flashless photography. I shoot in RAW+jpg and can compensate for WB and EV in camera...sweet feature of the K10D. Please offer your opinion on the pros and cons of each brand. What is the approximate 'bad copy' percent of each?

Nice pictures. I was shooting at the British museum at art behind glass and could have used a lens like this. I would have already bought one but can't test one here and am worried about ordering a 'bad copy'.
To deal with your slow shutter speeds did you boost your ISO?

Please add the Pentax DA* 16-50 to that list for me as I will likely be getting one of the 3 soon.

Does anyone know if this older (non DG?) version of the Sigma 70-300mm will fit and auto focus on my K10D? It has a Serial Number: 1147778

Simply put, VALUE! Lower prices and more features for Pentax body's and lenses compared to the big two competitors products. I recently initiated my sister into Pentaxianhood by snapping up a new K10D for her before they are all gone. Now we can swap accessories and lenses and share a great hobby!

Thanks for pointing that out. The TC shot looked softer than the upconverted on in the examples. Do the other tests confirm the results of the one in your link? Maybe I don't need the 70-200 if I can upconvert crops on the 50-135 to look that good?

I am starting to like the idea of the 50-135 with a TC that I heard may be offered in the future.

I hope they make enough of these when they do release them as they are going to sell well. IQ is important to me but HSM focus speed/silence and 2.8 continuous are sorely needed.

I just picked up a K10D for my sister at Ritz last week for $650 USD body only. They are probably going fast.
