Re: Thinking of switching to Pentax from Canon

Well, I finally made my decision. I realized that even going refurbished for the Nikon gear, that it would cost me a decent amount more for my "base kit". Plus I did think the K-30 felt better in my hands, something felt a little awkward about the D7000, not bad, but off. So I went ahead and bought a K-30 with the WR 18-55 from Hunts. I saw the 35mm 2.4 and the 50mm 1.8 were at a really good price on, so I ended up buying both for $269. Not too bad, if they honor the price. Supposedly they are cancelling orders because of a price mistake, but so far I haven't had mine cancelled. Either way I think I'll be happy. My K-30 arrives on the 20th according to UPS.

Thanks to everyone for all the advice. The differing points of view really helped me weigh the pros and cons and come to an informed conclusion.
