Re: Thinking of switching to Pentax from Canon


i own both Canon and Pentax gear, i have the 7D and T3i as well as a Pentax K20D and K-01.

I would say that if you want the best high ISO performance at a good price the Pentax K30 is hard to beat (it has essantially the same sensor as in the K-01), it's weather sealed as a bonus.

The Canon DSLR sensors are more noisy and needs more PP for NR than the Pentax and you need to expose your shot more cautiously if you want the best out of the sensors.

We don't know yet the performance of the 70D, so it's hard to comment. As for lenses Canon certainly have more choices especially in the Zooms and long Pro L lenses.

The 50mm/1.8 and Da35mm/2.4 are good choices.
