    1) What is your budget?
    2) Do you see yourself minding to save up a bit more?

    Therefore, firstly, answer the first question honestly..

    Then answer the second question realistically. If you tell us, "I don't mind saving up a bit more for better camera if its worth it", then even better.. Look at Hasselblad.. It's worth saving up for, to me.
    should promote the 645D instead Hasselblad

    So the camerea model is subjective to the user. Some are gearheads but others just want a simple camera to start the hobby. This afternoon, another student asked me to bring him to look at DSLRs as he wants to get into photography. I brought him to T K Foto @ Funan and showed him the K50 as well as the GXR A12 28mm that I currently own. I showed him the different modules and explained its differences to him.

    I also told him to Google Pentax and see the specs and I will explain to him again tomorrow. I also helped another student reserve the last K30 at OP and he cannot wait to get his hands on it.

    Being the only "Pro" in school that uses the brand, I try my best to promote it to students, be it the Kx, Kr, K30 or whichever model that can help their budget.

    You have to stay tuned to Pentax subforums..

    I think you need 50 posts to be able to post proper links IIRC.
