Do you have any trouble locating lenses for the Pentax?

I didn't get to go to the camera store today, but it's happening first thing in the morning.

angelove-

I shoot with the Pentax Kx, just as sho turtle does. Lenses are widely available and when you consider the Kx can use all of the Pentax AF lenses, E-Bay opens up a very large market in used lenses. Here is a good example:I purchased an older ProMaster F 2.8 80mm to 210mm lens on E-Bay for $51.00 and it beats my brand new Pentax brand 50-200mm hands down.

I will trip to post some side by side shot of the k-x and t1i at the higher iso later or tomorros. It may give you a good idea how close these 2 camera's are at 6400 and 12800 iso. AF system the canon wins.

I owned the Nikon D70 and finally gave it to my daughter. I recently purchased the Canon T2i with the Sigma 17-70 F2.8-4 lens and I am extremely pleased with the results. I took some great pictures with the Nikon but perfer the Canon.
