Pentax K-7 Voted Adorama Readers' Choice Camera 2009

November 27, 2009

Adorama Learning Center Readers' Choice Camera 2009 Is...

The Pentax K7, by a landslide.

With 2,746 total votes, you chose the Pentax K7 over seven other very deserving models, by a w-i-d-e margin.

My congratulations for Pentax.

I think that is very significant, way to go Pentax!!

I was at a book store today and the photo magazines carried a fair amount of advertising copy for both the K7 and the Kx.

This is pretty lopsided, well done Pentax! Here's an illustration from Adorama (c) Adorama:

If this poll was open to the public and it was posted on this board I'm sure there was a large sway in voter turnout favoring Pentax. Still, nice to see.

Check Comcast.net online store for SLR's and the K-7 and K-x have been the first 2 Featured Products for the last few months also

While the K-7 topped this poll, how does it rate in terms of the actual Adorama DSLR sales charts? That's where Pentax really wants to rank #1 on.

Not that this is a bad thing, but I wonder how much traffic to the poll was through a post in a Pentax forum.

Pentax users weren't the only ones linking to the poll from forums around the web - and it's fair play for them to let other owners know about a poll if you ask me.

Leica users were among the others mobilizing voters with calls to participate:

LEICA Photography | Facebook
Vote M9 as Adorama's Reader's Choice Camera - The GetDPI Photography Forums
Links on "LEICA Historical Society of America" | Facebook

Unquestionably the Pentax community did the best job getting out the vote, though. ;-)

Sweet! Go Pentax and the K-7. I see they used my post as the very first reason of why the K-7 was voted first.

What the poll tells me is that users of the other brands were too busy taking photographs to vote.

I was away for vacation (in a country with basically no internet ).

So, where is this post? Was there one here in PF? If so, I apologize for having opened another thread.

Over there at Adorama I read that Pentax management invited to participate in the poll. Is it true? That indeed would be a bit over the edge ...
