Pentax K10D or Canon EOS 30D?

  1. Recently I was looking at the pricing of these two, i can get a used 30D for
    (New Zealand $)$1,250 with a cheap CANON EF-50mm f/1.8 II lens + warranty since
    the owner has had it for only 1 month, or i can get Pentax K10D brand new with
    kit lens F3.5-5.6, 18-55 mm for $1,325 with warranty etc., each has it's pros
    and cons. Which would be the ideal to get? I plan to shoot mostly landscape,
    natural/outdoor etc.
  2. K10D, the best value out there.
  3. If you're eventually planning to expand into other accessories-flash, lenses, etc.--I wouldn't
    bother with Pentax. It is a very limited system, and even big makers like Sigma and Tokina
    have a limited selection of lenses available. BTW--I'm a Pentax owner.
  4. Okay thanks guys, I did get a 30D instead.
  5. It is nonsense to say that Pentax is a limited system as has been pointed out on this forum in the past by people who know what they are talking about. It seems even owners don't really know what they are talking about. Shame you went for the Canon when from what you say your interests there was no need.
  6. K10D - More features, more lenses for less money. Better tonal range, more film-like images.

    I like Canon and Nikon but, Pentax beat them fair and square with the K10D in this camera category.
