Did a lot of research on cameras on this site and by reading these forums and decided to buy the Pentax K10D. I will be writing a full review after my camera arrives and I have a little time to tinker with it. One of the big reasons for picking Pentax over the bigger names was undoubtedly price. I did want to let everyone on this site know that on top of already wonderfully priced camera Pentax is offering some really big rebates now through the end of the year. $100 off the camera and $25 off the battery grip and $25 off the DA 50-200 lens are the ones I took advantage of but there are others. This let me get the Pentax K10D w/18-55mm Kit Lens, 50-200 Lens and Battery Grip for under $1000 and that just cant be beat.

Bonsoir rich_knight,

Congratulation for your new K10D :!: It's a fantastic camera and I'm very happy with it. I wrote a :arrow: user review that may help you into getting familiar, since it has a learning curve.

Nice to hear from you and your own feed-back. :)

Thanks all for the warm welcome and especially rei_vilo whose detailed review and testing was exceptionally informative. I look forward to sharing my own results.

As to where exactly the rebate is valid - I am not sure. Here is a link to the Pentax site with the "BRIGHTEN YOUR HOLIDAYS DSLR" REBATE. It appears to run from 18 Oct 07 - 31 Jan 08.

Just in case anyone is wondering I have no association with Pentax other than just buying one myself.
