Comments about Pentax Pentax K2000 Digital Camera w/18-55 and 50-200mm Lens Kit:

I went on a family camping trip and was changing the lenses all the time to get great W/angle and macro shots and landscapes to long telephotos and portraits. Took some getting used to, it had been so long since I last used an SLR with interchangeable lenses.

The "night scene" setting was great for shooting inside a cavern guided tour, no flash, just the lights from the tour; or around the campfire.

The "auto picture" setting usually picked the correct format.

Although I did not order it, I found the AC adaptor style to be "clunky". It looks like a set of batteries that you drop in the battery hole, with a cord and plug attached.

I found this product to be everything I expected, as great as the professional reviews I had seen, and have no problem whatsoever recommending it.
