I will not buy the FF if I can 3D print my own
I will not buy the FF if it doesn't come in olive green w/ pink grip.

in all honestly I won't ever buy it, but this is a humorous thread...

What's a good cheap wide angle lens?

I picked up a 10-20mm Sigma f4-5.6 secondhand for ~US$300. It rarely leaves my camera now!

Highly recommended as a cheap entry point into the fun world of ultra wide angle. If UWA is what you are looking for.

My bet is if he has a K-x already, he probably has an 18-55 already.... :confused:

The main reason I chose a macbook pro over PC is the trackpad - it is just gorgeous to work on and 99% of the time can do without a mouse...

The backlit keyboard is a pleasure to use as well, and the unibody construction is fantastic.

Reasons not to chose? slower, more expensive, heavy...

no, you need a K-5 + DA35/2.4 to understand what you can get from a K-5 + DA35/2.4

just because a successor to the K-x is released, it does not mean it's a prompt for K-x owers to upgrade. Sure, it's an option, but I think most entry level users would be aiming for at least 2 years of use before upgrading, ie skipping a generation.

no no no we all know K-X is the (not so) long awaited update to the K-7, therefore it must be pronounced K-ten!!!!

they couldn't use k-8, thats like kate.. too girly
k-9, well. it's obvious what's wrong...
and to make the update to k-7 not so obvious, (to not upset K-7 owners ;), they went Roman!

from memory you have to click down off the time, to a 'save settings' button or similar (below the section where you edit the date/time), and then click 'OK' on that. I was setting the time and just hitting menu to go back, but this just cancels any changes made.

How to switch to Pentax?

haha you pick out one common feature, and one as trivial as battery type, and suggest a direct comparison based on that? Yes I know he said he likes lithium, but there are many more similarities between the K-x and his canon which make it a much more suitable replacement. And really, eneloops are brilliant. I brought 3 packs with me to Africa this trip, 3 weeks in and still on my first set :D

It's like saying he should buy the K20d as it only comes in black, just like the Canon!

According to digital camera review, the K-x AF acquisition is .04 of a second faster than the K-7. Interestingly the K-m/2000 comes in at 0.32 of a second. This is the only website I could find with AF timings for both cameras. I have no idea on their reputation.

I'm intrigued at your choice of equivalent replacement camera. At the time the XS was sold, the direct competitor from pentax was the 200D. At the moment the closest available equivalent new camera would be the K-x.

a) you are partially retarded and are unable to grasp the concept that there is no such camera at the moment, or

b) you are simply trolling, or

c) both of the above.

I'm going for a partially retarded troll. I choose C. lock it in.

I do think that if you are in the sub $2000 bracket for a dSLR, and looking for a pentax, now is one of those rare moments in time that it IS worth it to hold off for the next model.

New ferrari may have a 10% increase in horsepower over the previous, but a new pentax may have a 50% improvement in high ISO IQ.
