    Is it worth getting the k10D from the show?

    oh believe me, the k20d will not be the one getting the foothold for pentax if it is at $888

    because that means that hte k200d has to be equally auspicious, at $88!

    Got K20D body only from M.S. Color @ 1850 w GST (Cash).

    Did some quick test of ISO3200. Will post the pic later. AWB was really good. No need to use lightroom to adjust any more. The as shoot is better then any other setting.

    Good to hear that K20D had hit around 1.8k region.
    Let's get rolling :)

    Congrats!
    But as it has been said, they had to introduce a new kit lens because the 14MP resolution is too high for the original kit lens. I wonder when you buy the body only, how many of the original lenses will work optimally for the K20D?

    you mean, the new kit lens is better than the old one?

    Not better, merely optically optimised to maximise on the 14MP's resolution. At least that's how I was told...

    ? so it can resolve more lines? won't that make it therefore.. er, better in a way?

    sorry, not very in touch with the technical aspect of lenses and the measurements etc

    if the new one is still good for ir

    Looking at the Pic of K20D search on flickr ... I don't find the K20D ....attractive, but it makes me think that K1OD is damn solid to get if you shoot in Raw only, if not for Jpeg direct shooting problems with the K10D...

    yes precisely.. if you happen to be taking a lot of landscapes primarily

    then perhaps the k10d is more than sufficient, you remind me

    but then again, one never knows when he needs higher cleaner iso.. i think it is generally agreed that k20d is stronger than k10d in that aspect, no? and people always want more, it's a good to have feature rather than a must-have, undeniably, but if you have the moolah.. why not?

    i am still trying to justify to myself if i should pay the extra money

    The K10D is a great camera (otherwise it wouldn't have won so many awards ). But after one week use of the K20D, I do find it's a better camera overall.

    If you think the pics from K20D are not attractive, that's mainly because it's not around long enough as the K10D. I'm sure you'd see some excellent photos taken by the K20D after more people using it long enough

    That's a very good price, congratulations! Hope to see some of your samples from the new camera soon

    welcome to the rebellion!
    How much did you pay for it? If going there is not that inconvenient (i.e. you DON'T drive!), then may be worthwhile to wait till 8.30pm tomorrow evening to buy it...that's when prices come down or more goodies thrown in...

    That works out to be US$1192.00 bf tax. I think that is the lowest it can get for quite some time.

    Anyone with the latest update on the price at the IT show please let us know. Thanks!
