I saw a local studio photographer on the news the other day and she was using a Pentax! Not sure what model.

Years ago I was out shooting with my local photo club my K10D. There was actually another guy with a K10D as well. I was with a friend of mine who was shot Cannon all his life. He had his expensive full frame Cannon with him. A young guy asked us why would anyone buy a Pentax. My Cannon friend looked to him and said, "well if you drop your Cannon or Nikon you are going to most likely cry, if you drop your Pentax you just dust it off and keep shooting. That is why people shoot with a Pentax". Again this came from a friend of mine who is a professional photographer who travels the world and only uses Cannons.
I like your friend....

Must use his quote next time a T3i guy asks that same question

Reading this topic I got now the idea that I will photographing other Pentax cameras (except mines ) that I will see to work henceforth.
I do not expect too many pictures of this kind.

I am really sorry, I cannot remember. I think it was something like Pantax.


The shop had it at a Jean Poitier pleasing price of AUD2.99. (Approximately USD2.35)
Pentar? I asked on our forum and the guy who mentioned it last time told me Pentax cameras were sold as Pentars for a while in the South Africa. Presumably because Pentacon owned the Pentax brand there.

Exactly, write them out for even looking at it. Make it clear, no Pentax, no denari.

In the light of a lot of people here complaining about condescending remarks by CaNikon users - how about we create a thread called something like The ultimate 'I abused my Pentax and it survived' Thread, where everyone can post pictures and stories of physical abuse his/her camera has taken and survived. Something along the line of Heie's Afghanistan treatment, but based on real life situations. I for example shot a Holi festival today but only took a picture of my camera after following the rain had already washed all the colours off

This thread would then serve as a testimony of classical Pentax ruggedness and every time someone asks why we shoot Pentax we could just refer/link to it

Fire it up! Should be a fair number of survival stories out there.

I was in Brixham, on the south Devon coast, for around two hours on Saturday. I saw 2 Nikon's, 1 Cannon, and a Pentax. Along with my K5 we were almost in the majority.

It wasn't me on Saturday, but I'm a Pentax shooter who can often be seen in Brixham. My parents live there, so I visit at least once a month. There's also a great little camera shop there called Mifsuds, with a good selection of new and used Pentax gear.

Yes. I had a look in their window but I'm not after anything at present. Well not anything I can afford
