Unless you like compact gear, i don't get why anyone uses Pentax.

I assume you just love compact gear... or you dont practice what you preach.

I have 2 cameras (happy with both) and have all lenses I wisely purchased... never sold one and have no plan to.

I dont see myself as a compact user.

@Alfisti -- you oversimplify and don't mention clear advantages such as SR. In this thread, Steve from gives more good reasons to prefer Pentax:

Since I'm planning on upgrading some time in the future, would you guys recommend getting a pro-sumer camera now, and not spend the money twice?
I think it's all up to you. It's your money afterall.

K-x hit the sweet spot in pricing for me. Not sure about the Lenses. That's where they get you [on LBA]. All the puters I bought in the past are all $500ish.

I don't get why people publicly announce their ignorance.
Wasn't that why the web was created?
