Hi
I have recently joined the forum and am new to dslr's, but not photography. 'Back in the day' I had lots of fun with Zenit and Praktica cameras and assortment of cheap glass.
I have a gx10 and am awaiting a k10d from a forum member. I have not really had chance to use the samsung, as it has been on permanent 'loan' to my stepson. Having two cameras should solve this problem, but which to keep for myself? Any preferances or advice?

there isn't much (if any) difference, save maybe for the grip for the K10D not fitting the samsung.

Oh, and welcome

Hi and Welcome!

Keep the K10D Samsung don't seem to carry spares to repair
the GX-20 so I presume they won't be able to repair GX-10's
in which case it's not worth an awful lot

Pentax K-1 + K-5 and some other stuff

G'day and welcome. The K10 is my current camera, along with a K-x, and a good choice for you to keep.
