So, I just bought this.
I've been wanting a DSLR for a looooong time, at least a year - ever since I got to borrow a Canon EOS 40D for a semester and shot a wedding with it (what a heavenly experience that camera was). But, cams are expensive and I used that as an excuse to keep putting it off.
My Fuji is great, but it's not an SLR. (Though honestly you'd never be able to tell by either its outward appearance or its image quality). I'm starting to outgrow it, skill-wise, and have actually been avoiding using it *because* I'm disappointed that it's not an SLR. I also bought it in 2007 and it's starting to show its age.
And though I was planning to get a Canon based on my wonderful experience with the 40D, I favor underdog brands in just about everything I buy, (though Pentax itself has a great reputation) and this one not only had rave reviews, but it came with a screaming deal of two lenses included for less than I'd expect to spend on any DSLR to begin with. The time just finally felt right.
It should arrive over the weekend!
