    I recently bought a Pentax K2000/K-m DSLR, and am happy to report that I agree with the review here - it is a fairly compact and feature-filled camera. The picture quality has been great - - I've mainly used auto, landscape, program, and aperture priority modes, and have been happy with the results. Will be a great tool to help me grow as an amateur hobby photographer. The battery life has been AMAZING. I'm using Sanyo Eneloop AA's, and they last and last.....can't imagine what the lithiums will do. Menus are easy to navigate, and the owners manual (printed) is logically laid out and easy to fathom. Especially for someone new to the DSLR world like me.....I struggled with the choice between a superzoom (Fuji s8100fd) or a DSLR - - but ultimately decided on the Pentax - - it felt great and made some sense to me as I handled it. Loved the feel - a little heavier than the D40 Nikon, but seemed more substantial as well.

    I picked mine up for $550, but the package included the 18-55 DA-L kit lens, a 50-200 DA lens (not the DA-L like the kit lens), Pentax holster bag, and 4gb SD card....from an authorized Pentax dealer....so needless to say, I'm a happy camper. Can't wait for summer - should be great fun on my vacations to Glacier National Park and the Oregon Cascades......
