I can get one of these free thru my work rewards program. It seems like a good camera from the reviews. I have been looking at waterproof point&shoots. But having a Father and Grandfather that were both pro photogs(mainly weedings and porn) I have the desire to get a slr and do some more creative stuff. The one thing I do like is that you can use just about any Pentax lens ever made with it. Which means some very inexspensive high quality used lens out there. I can spend $150 or so and have a 300 zoom and a macro lens to go with it. Much nicer than dropping $1200 -$1500. My Dad has some DSLR lens that are $1500 alone.
