Pentax K-x or Nikon D3100?

Hi All,

I have been using an Canon SX130IS p&s for more than 2 years & now looking for an DSLR.

I'm from Sri Lanka and the DSLR market in Sri Lanka is dominated by Canon & Nikon(about 99%)

I have a very limited budget & have found 2 options that I like.

  • New Nikon D3100 - about $450 - (A good used one can be found for about $350 in Sri Lanka)
  • Used Pentax K-x - about $250 (Is in good condition, bought from US in 2012, shutter count - 7500)

My main usage is for casual shooting & to use it in trips.

What would u guys recommend me? Would I be better off with buying new?

Thanks & Regards,
