What a worry it must be for some; some people would worry endlessly, even if they had nothing to worry about because that would be a worry to them.

The solution appears quite simple - if you want smaller compressed files, which would take longer to store (whilst probably not necessarily obvious, the action of compressing takes files time - maybe only a few milliseconds - but it adds to the storage time nevertheless. Depending upon the compression technique, it may even add time to the decompression in order to view the image.), then go for the Nikon, otherwise choose the Pentaxif that your preference.

I guess, we should thank you for the enlightenment.

No, not true. Smaller or compressed files are FASTER! That is what I like! :-)

nikon recommends not using compression if you want to capture your images faster. This may not hold in the current iterations but was definitely in the manual in the past...
Not sure what the sales reps said though.

this use to be a big issue, however, to me, as long as quality come first, it is not so much a issue at least to me. sd card is the best format, and it is getting really cheap, it will still go cheaper as the capacity is still increasing. so, not a big worry to me. of course i do wish if the file size can be as small as possible, but i will treat it as a bonus rather than a must.

All I care now is that thePentax RAWfiles are big; therefore it is rather limiting in my opinion!

So buy the Nikon. If you think the file size is limiting for how you shoot, but a cmaera that suits your style of shooting. Buy a Nikon, or a Canon or whatever. No ones putting a gun to your head MAKING you buy a Pentax.

I am not an expert on this and have not read the K10D manual, but there is a thread on Dpreview with some contradicting info on this. Maybe this is food for thought and needs to belooked atfurther. I am sorry ifthis tends to stir the pot- Bruce
