If you were vacillating over which sub-$1000 DSLR to get this year, your decision was just made a little more difficult by Pentax. Their K20D, which is by all accounts an excellent camera, has had its price dropped by two bills. Those are some serious savings, kemosabe. $800 recommended means you can get it for a song once the big e-tailers start undercutting each other. They did this already with the K2000, but I think this is a better deal.
The great thing about Pentax is also their huge range of lenses going back a long ways. You can get the kit wide-angle zoom for an extra $80, but I’d go with the body only and find yourself a sweet deal online for your main lens.
