    but the problem is our pocket is not a bottomless pit to fill this black hole.

    Welcome, hopefully you will continue with the Pentax DSLR range. The Pentax community here is growing rapidly. But still the best camera is the one inside you. Have fun shooting

    hahaa.. yeah, i heard about the bottomless pit. got some recommendations for places to rent lenses also.
    currently looking at around $1000 to start myself off?

    haven't tried the pentax dslr range yet though.. so far tried the sony range (which i find very light) and the 450d my friend loaned me before.

    have to go and try out the nikon range of dslr next!

    thanks everyone for the welcome! i shall do more reading up first. ^^
