Another thread for photo buffs.
Backstory - I was laid off from my IT job. I've pretty decided I hate working in IT and have no motivation to go back to it. My degree is in photography, and I worked as a professional photographer and photo assistant for a couple of years after college before getting into IT. I'm thinking of going back to photography. I have already done a job at my old half day rate, and have an idea for a niche market. The rub is I currently have no gear, lol. I sold my Nikon D80 because I was unhappy with the high ISO performance. Before I could make the switch I was laid off. Perfect timing.
So, I've been looking at cameras again. I was going to go with the Canon D50, put the Pentax K20 keeps grabbing my attention. Why? It's less expensive, sealed against water/dust/moisture, has image stabilization built into the body (so you have image stabilization with all lenses - unlike Canon/Nikon), is 14 megapixel, and has more flexible bracketing settings (nice for what I plan on doing).
Thoughts, tips, experiences, or suggestions?
