    You may see it as sarcasm.

    But all I see here is humor.

    Try to lighten up once in a while.

    TS should just buy a k-x or k-r.

    To TS,

    If you concern your personel image, newbie and common folks will see you use pentax and think it must be some cheap brands.

    However, amatures and pros will think you know what you are doing and spending the best out of your $.

    No la. Not trying to be sarcastic.

    apologies if the comment(s) gave you that impression.

    If there's so much furore over a choice between Canon, Nikon and Pentax...

    LOL.... I guess it really doesn't matter about the brand... lol more like the person himself... lol Just to a bit research on Pentax as advise by some of you. Find out more info regarding to this camera. I understand why you guys suggest me this options the price is affordable and the reviews was very positive. I guess i need a hands on experience to try out the camera... coz somehow i like the feeling when i holding on 550D compare to nikno D3100 no offence both are good camera just that the feeling for my hand feels different. lol...

    Sony took over Konica-Minolta DSLR division in 2005. First Sony alpha was launched only in 2006, the A-100. Followed quickly with the A-700 in 2007. In 2008, it launched 3 models.

    Between 2006 and 2008, it became the fastest growing company in the DSLR market. By 2008 it has 3rd largest market share in the DSLR market with 13% market share.

    So frankly speaking, Sony Alpha was still very new in early 2008. Which probably explains why you never heard about them.

    But seriously, the technology was good as it came from Minolta, a company with some very strong histroy in film SLRs, and several strong DSLR models. Minolta was the company to first introduce an entire Autofocus SLR system to the market back in the day, when everyone else was still on manual focus.

    that's a good start. At least you have tried both out, and one of them has "called out" to you. You should do the same with others, like Pentax K-x, K-r, etc, as well as other brands even.

    buddy, you can't just compare a much higher-end entry-level 550D with a beginner-level 3100D. the 3100D is more of to the 500D or 1000D
    well, if you looking for much worthy buy for your bucks, i suggest go for the 550D
