Re: Do not buy Camera or Lenses from Amazon

Nivedita: I try to tune out any bias or unfairness towards Pentax from Dpreview. Dpreview is so gear and "bell and whistle" centered that it misses or minimizes the unique and perhaps more retro features of Pentax such as build quality, water and dust resistance, astrotracer, etc.  Having said that, I do wish Pentax had a full frame with a deeper buffer and quicker afc autofocus. A couple/few additional frames per second would be nice, too.  Alas, we cannot have everything for less than $2k USD.

As to Amazon, I wish its shipping dept packed fragile equipment better, but we have had nothing less than stellar customer service from Amazon and we do buy from Amazon frequently.

As to B&H, a great store and I often order from B&H, too.
