    Well, as long as you don't need fast telephoto lenses, pentax is fine.

    For your use, you can consider the sigma 10-20 and pentax 12-24. The upcoming (december=ish in singapore) 16-50 2.8 might also be interesting.

    It's definitely true that pentax lens availability is lower than nikon/canon, but for your stated use I suspect pentax has available glass which you can find reasonably easily.

    if u got any airlady friends always fly between SG and JP or HK , the lens issue does not exist at all..and JP/HK pentax price is very good.

    Uh.

    I think the most important thing to do is to go feel the cameras to see what you like.

    The D80 is not bad, frankly.

    also, if you have lots of friends, who are willing to lend you lenses, that's also a benefit to a more popular system.

    lens prices are here:
