Recommend me a DSLR kit - Page 2

post #11 of 76

Gotcha. There's a photography store near me and i'll be popping in to check out a Pentax K-5 and a Canon T2i. (They also have the K-30 and T3i in case I wanted to compare)

Let's see. The salesman was raving about the K-5 even though it's not as new as the K-30. He said the magnesium body alone is well worth it over the K-30.

But do you actually need a mahnesium body lol

Yea its great but if you baby your gear or never drop anythibg ever its not a good reason for solely buying one camera over another

Not just the body.

It's also weather resistant.

And...i'm clumsy.

The K-5 is still a great DSLR. Even if it's a bit older.

The K-30 is kind of the filler in between the K-5 and K-r.

Mag shells don't make the body drop resistant....it just makes it feel more solid. Both bodies are weather resistant, so dropping it in water will still mess it up.

Why trust a review about camera feel? Go hold them, make your own decision.
