I use my K 5 as my primary, but I do have a old full frame also and do use it with m42 adapter.

I am equally likely to use the K20D and the K-r, it depends on the situation. Maybe you should allow multiple selections.

I think the K-x and the K-m should be separate... they might be in a similar body but their internals are very different.

Really unfair poll. Use K7 and K5 as main bodies interchangeably. K10D is my M42 body and *istD for any legacy lens with TTL flash. I use them all

Well, I jumped ship in a small way. Wanted to add the Q to my stable for a pcocket type cam for cargo shorts. Went for an Olympus and the 12mm. Hope they come out with a superwide for it someday.

Other than that am Pentax cmos and 645D all the way!

Two K-x bodies. One white, one black. I call the white one "Paul" & the black one "Stevie".

I have added a K-5 since I answered this poll but still have the other 3 bodies. The *istD is sort of my digital SV (m42 manual) or K2 (K-mount manual). The K-5 and K20d are my main bodies with the K200d as a back up.

I find it interesting here that the poll categories have nothing to do with either entry level/ pro-am or with technology.

Look at the classes, all the *istD cameras are lumped together, but the *istD is quite alone in many aspects. Also, the K10 is lumped in with the K100 and K110, but is a pro/am as opposed to entry level body, and is a 10MP camera as opposed to 6MP

In reality, it should be each and every model on its own, or all the 6MP together, the K10 and K200 together, and then K20 and K7 together, then all the rest separate, as that defines the sensor technology.

This does not even well define the camera age..

Having said that, I still use an *istD, K10D K7D and K5D.

Yes, why indeed? I've always wondered... But I guess this ain't the right forum for that

No name for my K-5. She's always with me, though. I think mine's a she.

I mainly use 2 K10D's, a K20D and a K-x... which camera pretty much depends on what lens I want to use and how that camera generally renders an image with that lens.

Also, size of lens plays a part in which camera I will reach for; large/bulkier lenses will always be used on a K10D or K20D. "M" lenses will only be used on the K-x, etc. etc. etc...

My main play toy is the K5,since I only recently purchased it.And by the look at the poll,the K5 is sitting pretty on the top of the Pentax tree with most forum members.

Ive been using K-x for a little over two years now. Now Im waiting for my preordered K-30 to arrive, K-x will still remain as a second frame on active use. Ive been very happy with K-x performance, main reasons for a little upgrade are better AF and weather sealing. Also, Ive been sneaking around here "stealth" for a long time and this is my first post here. So hello everyone!
