My Nikon coolpix 8800 died and instead of picking up another elaborate point and shoot I figured I should grab a DSLR. I've got a ton of lenses from my Pentax so thats why I took the pentax into consideration, and the price. Any reasons why not to? My only gripe is 6.1 megapixels seems on the low side, but coupled with the nice glass it shouldn't matter a whole lot. I'm also considering the K10D, or K200D, but those are much more expensive.
