Looks like a competive spec - but no mention of price. A big plus for this one is the enormous range of K-mount lenses available - both new and used, so could be a very good option for someone not yet committed to a system and with a tight budget.

Well there's more and more choice in the DSLR market, I was going for a D100 but well maybe I should wait...
But it's been a while I've been waiting don't know what to buy...
I've read a lot about all those DSLR and i'm getting confused...

Ok thanks. Hypothetical question time: What current Pentax lenses would you favour to accompany this new DSLR, and what would their approximate cost be (Europe) if the body were available right now - I refer to av. photography of course

I would offer a suggestion on this but I had just gotten my brand new Sigma 28-135 F3:5-5.6 MACRO when my PZ-70 imploded at the Elemdorf AFB last year. That was the first trip out for that lens. It seemed like it was going to be a good one.
Belive it or not, the only lenses I have bought since then have been Takumar Universal mounts that fit on my Spotmatic and my Zenit B.
OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.

That is a plus, I'm a big fan of standard AA rechargeables. Cheaper and always available. They seem to last OK too if you get the high capacity NIMH ones. I just dropped the cash wad on a new Fuji, but if I hadn't this Pentax would have been a nice option too.
