    Default Before you jump into Pentax, read this first (Please contribute!)

    If you intend to jump into Pentax, do read what me and other forumers have to say about our system. Here's my say.

    Before you jump into Pentax, be aware that if you already own a system, eg Canon/Nikon, do think twice before regretting your decision. Every system has its advantages, and no system is perfect. Before you sell your gear and go into a buying spree, here's some things to think about:

    1) Why do I want a Pentax system?
    2) Is there anything I am with my system I am unhappy with that can't be changed through simple modifications and only available in the Pentax system?
    3) Am I prepared to let go of everything I own?
    4) Will I be prepared to hunt for certain lenses that I want and also know that it's not as easy as walking into a store and getting it like other brands?
    5) Am I willing to learn a whole new system?

    When you have answered the questions and you are confident with your decision, the please, go ahead and enjoy your new purchase!

    Well, that's because they think too much but shoot too little

    Go and get a Pentax, and go out and shoot, and your life will be Pentastic!

    I used Pentax for 15 years and got countless memorable images before I was forced to switch to Canon because Pentax couldn't come up with a good enough DSLR body fast enough. I have to say Pentax lenses are excellent (this coming from someone with more than a handful of Canon L lenses).

    Now I look at the k10D and wonder if I would've switched if it came out earlier. Then the new MF 645 Digital appears and I drool!

    I would encourage anyone to buy Pentax with no hesitation.

    Do you prefer the D60 or K100D? I like the grip of the D60, thumbwheel, large buffer and the idiot proof usage of the D60. For K100D, I love its grip too, weight, price and AWB.

    Er, what's the point of your post? Doesn't make sense to suggest to people how to make an informed decision, after all it's theirs to make. To me, your questions will seem to put off more people from wanting to join the Pentax fraternity. Wouldn't it be easier to tell people the virtues of Pentax cameras? Great performance at a great price, easy of use, backward lens compatibility, etc. So many positive things to say...

    Difficult to get certain lenses, yes, but since OP came,

    If it is that hard to use, read the manual.

    Well, you would need lenses, filters, battery bags, dry box and memory card. Those can be found in singapore. I am not sure about neeekoon's offer, because I don't give nothing to them.
