Well, I went and did it... I found a brand new Canon Rebel XT DSLR body and 28-200mm lens for a grand total of $535 including shipping. Sold my P850 to a real estate agent from my company for nearly retail so the net outlay was totally painless. I'll give you good folks an update when I receive this stuff in about a week.

Hope to join you soon on the Darkside. I've now collected a whole lot of lenses but they will be for a new Pentax K10D. Just tonight got a Samyang 100-500mm f/5.6-7.1 zoomlens to go with all the others. You know now --that the money will start leaving your pocket a lot faster! LOLOL Have fun with it and if all else fails go to the easysharer's forum as we have a Forum for DSLR's there as well as Kodaks!

By then Boily it'll be a D400. LOL that tech is moving fast these days. Just look at Kodak /... on average they put out 5-6 new models every year. Might want to look at the D80 instead for a starter...if Nikon is the way you want to go. Also go Ebay for the lenses. Got a Samyang 100-500 lens yesterday. Paid 52 bucks for it on Ebay. Looks brand new. Auto focus and everything! Red From what I've experienced with my Pentax film cameras the K10D should be a good one. They always put out a good product.

yeah you should look at the pentax k10d boily, on paper you couldent ask more from a dslr at the moment. people are comparing it to the 400d, a100 and the d80 but i think we should but most of the pentax forum are likeing it with the d200 and canon 30d. It also isnt that expensive, like 800$ in the us or something whithin a year it should be an affordable piece of machinery :bye::?:flame::ak47::shock::yawn::twisted:

I actually changed my mind about the Rebel XT and am getting the new Rebel XTi 10mp instead from Dell Small biz... on sale plus a 20% coupon, free shipping.
