:( Pentax didnt make this top this month

Sadly, Pentax was not among the top selling DSLRs this past July, according to NPD.

Next time....Although they were in Japan

I blame Pentax marketing.

Like others have said before, Pentax's engineers did their part well. It's up to marketing to promote the already wonderful products.

I blame Canon and Nikon marketting - lets face it, they are the big boys on the block, everyone's got one. When somebody wants to buy an SLR, they look around and see Canon and Nikon around everybody elses neck, so thats what they go get. Most retail outlets only carry Canon and Nikon, and if they carry Pentax they shoo people away from them back to Canon and Nikon.

Keep in mind that Pentax announced the K100D Super, but it wasn't yet available, which also probably hurt sales somewhat.

Canon EOS 400D - compared against rivals Digital SLR Review

Quote: The overall winner which is the Pentax K100D Super. The Pentax has proven its worth in all categories with a good build, easy to use functions and sterling performance in the three photographic tests.
