Pentax cameras outnumber rest

I am running a series of of outdoor photography workshops for one of the councils in Melbourne Australia. I get from 12 to 18 people at each of the workshops. Would you believe that the pentax cameras outnumbered any of the other brands. I am usually thrilled to see one other pentax, but three people turned up with their pentaxes, 2 K20s and a K7. Probably the first time I have been in the majority in 40 years.

That's good to hear.

Hopefully the K-30 will be better-marketed (especially here in the US) and bring in more new Pentaxians...

I'm beginning to see Pentax cameras at just about every camera magnet event I go to now. Despite the lack of advertising here in the US, they are selling.

In my photo club , we are about 50 members, we are about 10 with Pentax . Interesting enought, the winner of the photo contest are 40 % Pentax owner at the end of the year. We use outside judge and photo are not identified. My conclusion is people who own Pentax , are more proud of their camera and understand them better
