How does the Pentax compare with the D70?

The D70 is about the same price but way to big, the pentax is not much bigger than my S7000 Fuji and is great layed out.

Take a look here:

Feature wise I'm not sure but again, after showing the D-70 to my wife, she told me that I will be the one to carry it around and to take pictures and I agree, to big for my taste.

I was never in the DSLR camp but the Pentax looks like a helluva camera! I like its size, and the fact it takes K-mount lenses. Did my eyes deceive me or is this thing going for $800 street in some places?

That's quite right, I payed 899.- incl. a 18-55mm pentax lens but you can get it for 829.- just for the body, no tax and free 2day shipping at www.zipzoomfly.com (got verry good reviews).

And what about the Canon Digital Rebel? It's also a superb DC and cheaper than Pentax IstdS.

Well, I thought about it and tried it at Circuit City.

Not many manual functions like exposure controll and override, cheap plastic housing and feel and bigger, take a look at the comparrison picture:




There is a great preview review here at steves website as well as on dpreview.com.

Cheers
