Default A good deal ???

Hi,!

It`s been a looooong time since I`ve put up a post! I started using Pentax gear back in the latter `70`s, so I`ve a good size gear collection, including a digital "istD" model dslr. I'm considering upgrading with the link below,:

and I`m looking for overall feedback.

Sooo, what do you folks think? Not much info in regards to the included lenses.

i would not choose this company. service looks horrible.

i would be more likely to trust this.

There is a chance that the included lenses are the first versions, which are generally held to be not as sharp as the second generation. As you say, not much info, and that is something to consider. Check the Pentax lenses forum for more info.
If you have lenses, why would you be thinking of a two lens kit? Should be able to find body only for less, and put the difference into better quality lenses or accessories.

Other major internet retailers are offering the very same items and price.
