    Pentax always sounded too close to tampax for me to take them very seriously.

    my first post!

    I have one too, last years Optio330, like it a lot, the case is strong and solid metal, super intuitive to handle, except the battery is a poor little thing. it should have twice the power, at least. About the price I can only tell you that I bought mine a year ago for approx. 1000 Euros. The only thing I regret is not buying the 430 with 4Mpxls which cost "only" 200 E more. Pentax has a good reputation here in Europe, they're not leaders, they're ok (hope not offending anyone!?). I also considerd a model from Kyocera I don't remember. But Kyocera uses a own storage-medium, what I disapproved.

    Correct me please, I rarely write english.


    ... no, I will not use a smiley in my first post ...

    Correct me if I'm wrong, as I haven't followed it much, but Pentax doesn't make their own digital cameras, do they? So i wouldn't put a lot of faith into the Pentax name if that is the case. Pentax makes solid film cameras, but I think they do the same thing Leica does with their digital cameras: hire someone else to build it and slap their logo on it.

    Not saying it is a bad camera, I don't know anything about it. Just saying it probably isn't a case where you want to put all your faith into the brand name...
