But Adam, none of these 10 advantages apply to me, so therefore Pentax is doomed and I will continue making disparaging remarks about any new Pentax products for the rest of time!.

Until they make a Norm Head Special model in asylum green, or send me a 645z, I'm with JinDesu. I like Pentax but the camera envy and LBA are getting unbearable, and a guy has to pay the bills.

I think the Forums (as long as they stay Pentax-forums) is probably the number one!

Well with Pentax gear you can do almost everything you want. Maybe you have to be a better photographer then with some other brand, but when would that be a negative:

I need a K3, all of the limited and * lenses, and of course the FA*250-600 along with the 645z and 5 or 6 lenses of my choice for that for me to say Pentax isn't doomed any more.

Thanks, and this with just K-5 and DA*300mm.

With Canon you need a Full Frame camera and a 300mm/f2.8 with TC or a 400mm lens. Look at the budget spend....

It's like Divorce: once you have to start listing reasons why you shouldn't, you should.

IamDooooooomedTM

but I do love my Pentax cameras!

I personally only used the PentaxIsDoooooomedTM phraseology to make fun of the grumpy people. People like this guy:
