Yes they are basically Pentax Camera's. I am leaning towards the K200D. That way I can re-use my Lenses and get body only to save some money. Basically my rule of thumb has been if it costs half or more of the cost to replace, I replace. Plus 6 weeks to wait for repair UGH may as well save during that time, look for after christmas sales. Yes your right about film... I never got into film to much but the new Digital cameras they say have just passed film. I dunno... I just do it for fun. Merry Christmas!
P.S. Nikon are nice, everyone seems to carry capatable Nikon Acc. I already have a couple of lenses and the shop I got my Samnsung from would take my lenses and camera in for trade, not much, but something for the Nikon D60 and to basically have to buy another 18-200mm lense and all way to much money. Everyone that have Nikon's love'm. I'll give Pentax a try.
