Hi fellow pentaxians, I'm ready to be back from Canon.

I calculated that my Canon stuff can be sold for around 1.100 Euro in Italy, so that I could buy, taking advantage of low dollar and rebate, one of the following combinations:

Pentax k10d + Flash Pentax 360 + Pentax 18-250 + Sigma 10-20 + 2gb SD;

Pentax k10D + Flash Pentax 540 + Pentax 18-55 + Pentax 50-200 + Sigma 10-20 + 2gb SD;

Pentax k10D + Flash Pentax 360 + Pentax 16-45 + Pentax 50-200 + Sigma 10-20 + 2gb SD;

This would be the straight trade of Canon for Pentax. Plus I want to get again the Pentax 50mm FA 1.4, for around 190$.

Anyone can give me an advice on which one is the best combination? I'm kind fixed on staying on pentax original glass, for the mtf program of the k10d, and in general because seeing my old pictures, I just love their result.

I have to decide by the end of the December, cause my father in law comes from New York on January.

Thanks

Lando

Last solution, making an exception to the only pentax glass:

Pentax k10d + Flash Pentax 360 + Sigma 10-20 + Tamron 28-75 + Tamron 70-300 + SD 2gb.

I just got a K10D...very happy with it. I'm looking at getting a Pentax 16-45...and a 360 flash.

What kind of photography do you do with the longer zooms ? Might help people advise.

Lando,

I got my K10D system back in August and the system I started with was your second one (Pentax k10D + Flash Pentax 540 + Pentax 18-55 + Pentax 50-200 + Sigma 10-20 + 2gb SD) with the addition of the grip. I have been very happy with my choice. I still use many of my older lenses, but I have been pleased with the lensesthat I got when I bought my system andI reallylike the Sigma 10-20.

My long end uses are nothing special, just the zoo trip with my daughter, or that deer or bird I may meet on a trip.

I'm more and more oriented to the 18-250, cause I'm getting more and more lazy, and if I go on a trip I don't want to lug around a lot of lenses, I need only a decent one.

Anyway, I'm just hoping to seel fast my Canon stuff, and get back in pentax mood.
