Anyway, though I am a canon camera user, I feels a bit disappointed when found out that TS actually is quite brand concious and selling her pentax.
People do all kinds of weird things. I remember some not so smart decisions I made too in the past.
But a word of advice to TS, in the end it is you that counts. Brand is not important. Your skills will make the difference. Build your skills up above all other things.
Go ahead and get a Canon or whatever, if it makes you feels good. But remember, when you shoot with your new camera, and the picture still sucks, remember what I said above. Start building your skills and shoot better.

Thx to all big bro..I will still keep my K20 if no one interested..
By d way, wat is IS?..sorry ah..ha!
TS, I think you should read up on photography in general. Put your camera aside and learn the basic theory first. Learn about the basics like the exposure triangle as well as find out more abt different cameras and their features (eg. IS, which you evidently don't know much about.) Only then you can evaluate if the K20D is the camera you need.
If not, you will keep your K20D just because people you don't know personally told you to keep it in a forum, which is not actually very smart because nobody should know better about what's best for you than.. yourself.
Canon and Nikon doesn't have this, only Pentax, Sony DSLR's/SLT's and Olympus have this function.
I dunno!!! ♥♥♥
It's banana-zero-neh. :)
Other names are OIS, OS, just to name a few
They are helpful in low light condition or telephoto zoom distance where you don't have a tripod and cannot afford shutter speed fast enough for your hand to be steady to take the shot.
So far, I only know pentax and sony alpha series have inbuilt IS in their camera body. C and N need to buy lens with IS on lens
There are alot of stuff you need to learn if you are really interested in photography. I have friends who are interested in photography and brought a DSLR only to find out that they just want better performing camera for nicer facebook photos. They went for C being brand concious only to find that they still can't shoot proper low light portrait. Please think about what you really want, when you posted the thread to sell your K20 I was like O.O already...
Pricing different between canon lens with IS and no IS:
EF 70-200mm f4L IS USM - $2299 (RRP)|$1862 cash (SLRR, Jun10)|$1883 cash (CP, w/ GST, Jun10)$1873 cash (AP, w/ GST, Jun10)$1890 cash (JO, Jun10) $1870 TK w/ GST Aug10
EF 70-200mm f4L USM - $1399 (RRP) |$1145 (MS, w/ GST, May10)$1120 (MS, w/ GST, Jun10) $1020 cash CP-P Aug10
It is really a good camera. Do you know how much more ppl have to pay for an equivalent spec and featured camera from another brand (comparing models around the same period)?
It is an advanced amateur level camera at the price of a mid end camera. There are many buttons avaliable for fast access and minimal menu diving. Features that are really advanced and found on more expensive cameras; Top LCD panel, AF fine tune, multi exposure, 5 frame exposure bracketing, etc).
Think abt it...

Actually I wanted to say the same thing but held back in case people slam me for being...(fill in the blanks)
I really find most of the post here are asking similar things. What to buy? Should I get this or that? What do you recommend? Is this better than that? Most people would give their advise to the best of their ability but I find that however good intention it may be...the advise is probably more suitable to the person giving the advise than for the person asking for it.
In any case, TS, I hope you do consider my advice to start learning the basics of photography rather than wasting time bothering about your camera. If you don't even know how to properly utilise your K20D, then how do you know it doesn't meet your needs?
Unless your only need is a popular brand, in which case, you should definitely buy a Canon.
