It's to stop, for instance, European retailers to buy cheaper cameras from America or Asia and bypass the local distributors.
I'm not sure how that's effective in any way. I wouldn't mind buying a K2000 instead of a K-m if the price is significantly lower.

That's the official reason, though, I'm pretty sure. YOU are a photography enthusiast, and you know what you're buying, but MOST people will be wary to buy a KISS when they're looking for a 500D, or an MZ-5 instead of a ZX-5, or a MAXXUM when they wanted a DYNAX.

[quote=Erik;537166]I totally agree about Canon feel. I used a 400D for a bit and sure, it takes decent pictures like any other camera but man! that Fisher-Price feel...

I totally agree. When I was shopping for my first DSLR, I handled a few Canons and was sure there was a "Mattel" logo stamped somewhere on the body!
