Canon (T1i) vs Pentax (K-x)
Jan 24, 2010

I'm ready to move from a P&S camera to a DSLR. I will take mostly pictures of the family. Portraits, sporting events, graduations, etc. I know the T1i and K-x are very comparable and either will suit my needs today. My question is which will be a better choice long term? I expect to buy 18-55 and 55-300ishh lenses. I assume that in a few years I'll be ready to buy a new body but won't need to replace my lenses. I also expect to expand my lens collection over time.

Does Canon or Pentax give me the best chance of upgrading pieces of my equipment over time?

Does Canon or Pentax give me more to choose from over time?

My father has a K-x and my brother in law has a 50D. They are both happy with their choice.

Thanks,

Brad
