Re: Thinking of switching to Pentax from Canon

Hi Tony,

If it hasn't been mentioned yet, I would suggest to go into your nearest camera shop, as mentioned by someone in your Canon query from a while back, and take in a memory car and pop it in a K30 and take some shots.   Also, whilst doing this, you can get a feel for the K30 -- ergonomics are important to me -- and, possibly more important, have a play with menu and see how intuitive it is for/to you.

As for additional lenses, you definitely couldn't go wrong with the DA35/24 and, FWIW, I have the Tamron 18-200/3.5-6.3 .. but the one I would recommend trying to get is the Tamron 18-250/3.5-6.3 lens.  Unfortunately, it's not available in Canada any longer but, perhaps, it's still available in the  America

Cheers and good shooting ... regardless of which manufacturer you decide upon

Jack
