this is a pretty good camera, theres missing AF points in the viewfinder so it might be a bit annoying if you are not use to teh camera. the 14mp sensor is the same as the nikon/sony sensor which is little less noisey then old canon rebel xt/xti/xsi sensor.

pentax cameras have the same mount since m42 days, so technically speaking there are far more NATIVELY compatible lenses for pentax then there are for canon and even low end nikon.

i personally would prefer to have the choice to use AA battery in my camera, since i always need to carry AA for my flash.
