If you've been considering a DSLR camera for a while but you're not eager to spend $500 to get your feet wet, Newegg.ca has a good offer for you. Right now, you can get a Refurbished PENTAX K2000 Black 10.2 MP 2.7" 230K LCD Digital SLR Camera w/smc PENTAX-DA L 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AL Lens for $299.99 with free shipping.
Let's get the obvious out of the way -- it's refurbished and it's an older camera (circa 2009). With that said, the camera offers good image quality, fast operation and shutter speed, in-camera image stabilization, and is compatible with older lenses.. Check out what some reviews have to say:
