Nikkor 30/1.8 - no Pentax equivalent. And finally D40 - beautifuly compact, quiet shutter, 1/500 (!) flash sync speed and my beloved 6MP sensor. Do you really need more for travel?



No Pentax equivalent? How about the 31 f1.8?

A 1300$ lens vs. 250$ lens, are you kidding me?

If you want a Coke bottle....get one.

You list the Sigma 10-20 for the Nikon D40.....then why don't you buy it for the Pentax. It does come in a Pentax mount.

Of yourse I could get it in K mount, maybe shouldn't have mentioned it in nikon context as point was more about the all around zooms and compact flashguns. The truth however is that I can get a 2nd hand sigma in Nikon mount from my local brick and mortar shop today instead of ordering online for pentax for 200$ more as the used ones are very rare.

Sorry, but this is starting to seem like a post to troll.

I explicitly mentioned the AFFORDABLE travel kit, please be constructive instead of putting lenses with 6 fold price difference next to each other. Sorry, but that looks like a fanboy post.
