    Woah 1130 is the price for 18-55+55-300

    Normally they don't sell the coloured k-x with dual kit lens unless you buy the single lens kit + the other lens , which obviously costs more ...

    He Sold Out, what more should he do other than to convince you to buy something else to close a sale?

    You get a full featured DSLR for $790. Better high ISO noise reduction that many cameras a few hundred $$ more expensive. Top that up with built in shake reduction to use on every lens you can mount on the camera. Add to this topping the fact that you can use all lenses made by pentax through its history (at cheap 2nd hand prices) and arguably the best lens coating (SMC). What more to ponder over?

    lol yea

    That is why my friend got me 1130$: 782$ for body +18-55, 438$ for 50-200

    It is 900$ for this dual lens kit in black lol, so it is 230$ more just to get white T.T But if I like it, I will take it out more. Be proud and take care of it more etc., so I think it worths the money to get white.

    However, just wonder if there is dual lens kit for White and Red, like The Navy Blue, which confirmed have haha, even thought already bought the non-dual lens kit White

    See Pinhole's comments. I 2nd his comments as Pentax has been longer in the market but although DSLR came later, we can and have many older lenses to choose from.

    Many C owners also use our Pentax lenses . . .via adapters or by cutting and modifying the K-mount of the Pentax lenses to fit into Canon DSLRs . . .

    So it shows that Pentax has better glass than C

    Canon DSLRs have a larger registration distance to the film plane so it is easy enough to fit adapters for lenses of different makes.
    People cut up and modify Pentax lenses is because they are cheaper and thus less painful on the wallet when modding.

    Please lah, all camera companies got good lenses and not so good lenses.
    Pentax has better glass than C??? How about this one? EOS 1Ds Mark III with Canon EF 300mm f/2.8 L IS USM

    You should have asked us to do last months outing at ECP instead.
    I had wanted to cover OSIM, but the outing was at the zoo.

    That's why I had to excuse myself from the zoo shoot in the morning. I think the majority wanted to shoot animals with long lenses rather than a sporting event (action). Also the very early start plus quite a lot of age group categories might have made it difficult to get everybody to meet together.

    Never never go and buy anything from Bally's unless you know the pricing of every accessory you will need.

    $690.00 + 7% GST is about $742.00 and then you will "need this and this and this " and by the time you come out of the smokescreen, almost $1000.00

    yea... i tot so too... i totally smelt the fishes from the guy... when he say $690... This Bally sounds like a black store ah... I still remb the guy juz walk behind to the office... within 15secs he came out and tell me got stock: White K-X single lens kit at $690... too good to be true... so i just walked off... haha...

    1 lesson i've learnt in life... is never trust quotes which are wayway below market price...

    Well i guess with all the recomendations made here... S$782 is as low as it gets...

    http://img340.imageshack.us/img340/9650/03052010216.jpg - why wan see my cam? Here are all the details in one pic.

    Btw note to all guys, I got mine at around March. But I really wish to tell you all that I was very pleased with Alan Photo (funan).

    The Story
    Before I went to buy my camera, i did some homework and heard that SLR Rev (both price and service) very good.

    When I was there, I went to both AP and SLR Rev and I was really disappointed with SLR Rev. The person did not seem to bother about me. I think he was reading his newspaper or something. But when I was at AP, the auntie there made me feel very welcome. She even lowered the price than her original quote when i mentioned that there was another shop with a lower price for the kx. She lowered her quote to match the prices. She gave me a screen protector and orientated me through the camera. There were some other details but these are the main points.
