(no subject)

It's such a bad idea for me to even look at this sort of thing...

The Pentax *ist-DS is the new-ish budget DSLR from Pentax. (I already have lots of Pentax lenses.) It's priced to compete with the Canon Digital Rebel and the Nikon D70. I could probably pick one up for $800. And I could sell the Canon Powershot S70 for probably $300.

$500 for a DSLR that I already have lenses for.

Christmas is coming up.

(Now that I look more closely, getting rid of the S70 in favor of the *ist DS would actually lose me 1MP in resolution. Hmm....)
