    the only reason i am getting this is because of the price, the canon will be like 2 times more expensive

    i only need to take pictures once in a while, might get into it more later on but dont plan on going out just to take pictures, just want to have nice pics for when i do take pics...

    I'd spend an extra $80 and get the Nikon D50 from camera warehouse.

    http://www.camera-warehouse.ca/product.asp?pr=D50

    Lots of people have shopped there and never had a problem. The price of the Pentax is probably body only which means you'll need to buy lenses for it. The Nikon is a body only deal as well and you'll also need to buy lenses for it but Nikon has a lot of lenses out there and overall their cameras > Pentax.
