    first question: How many people had bad luck w/ the Superprogram? I had the shutter switch go out on me 1 week after warranty expired. Pentax did cover it though. 2 years (and very little usage later the same thing happened. Started using a winder to get it to meter. Also the aperature ring doesn't register correctly in manual or aperature priority. (bad mechanical linkage?) Saw a camera selling on e-bay w/ the same shutter button problem. Any comments.
    Secondly I was planning (until the *ist D ) to sell off all my equip. May still do that and go for the Canon Rebel EOS ($999 w/ lens 6 megapixel) but the question is how is the current state of quality for Pentax. Don't want to get burned again (I have other Pentaxes that were much more stable)
