    OOPPSS SORRY.

    Ok I like D5000's tiltable screen but pentax offer of dual lens is very attractive, espically the zoom lens, is exactly what i wanted.

    So donno wht to do....

    price aside, Nikon wins, for me, the tiltable lens, again Pentax is too good to be misses either.... siong man

    so i suppose you have to compare D5000 + 18-55 kit lens + 55-200
    vs
    Pentax K-X + dual lens kit

    I'm not sure about the prices for both combos, though I'm pretty sure the Nikon will cost more.
    Then you have to decide whether it's WORTH the price difference...

    Hi Tom, welcome to Clubsnap

    Are you sure you got your prices right?

    Nikon D5000 + 18-55mm is ~$1150
    Pentax K-x + 18-55mm + 50-200mm is ~$900
    Pentax K-x + 18-55mm + 55-300mm is ~$1110

    It looks like Pentax K-x wins on price... and you get a free telephoto zoom lens on top of that.
    I don't subsidize marketing campaigns.

    Here is a side by side to let you compare feature to feature
    http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/comp...d5000&show=all

    Think over what you want to do with the tilt screen on the D5000. Is it going to be used often (Self portrait? Odd angled photos? Really??).

    Then might as well toss in the Sony A500 too. Same sensor as the D90. :P

    Ok the maunal focus point is something that bugs me too, as I do not wish to have all my subjects to be in the middle of the picutre. I would love to have them sometimes to the right or left......

    D5000 can do manual focus with the help of the focus point in the viewfinder which Pentax is lack off too.

    Than again, I am impress by Pentax reviews from users and experts no less. So heandache

    if im not wrong both pentax and nikon got 11 focus point? even without 11 focus point there is the option of focus lock - keeping your shutter button half press while shooting @ AF-S(autofocus still for nikon....dunno what its call in pentax).

    must ask the pentax user though...im not too sure if k-x have focus confirmation for manual focus...i think it should have. im quite sure nikon have though.
    i read somewhere pentax has green hexagon when its in focus. nikon has a green dot.

    im pretty sure k-x is better price from other threads in cs.
    K-x Body only: $745
    K-x w/ DAL 18-55: $800
    K-x w/ DAL 18-55 + DAL 50-200: $920
    K-x w/ DAL 18-55 + DAL 55-300: $1140

    but u said must buy today....i think u will end up with nikon since all the k-x are sold out .

    if you ask me.i would grab k-x (despite me being a nikon user).
