Just ask a Canon user why they buy up all our primes and then mutilate them...

As for the size of a K-30 compared to a T4i...

Compare camera dimensions side by side

The K-30 is slightly smaller in dimensions but weighs 75 grams more.

At your funeral, there will be comments about your choice of casket. What do you snappy comeback kids propose to say then?

This isn't a camera problem. It is a problem of people buying into mass-marketing hype and feeling a need to identify with and be identified by their choice of brand. It's a sad statement on modern pop culture and sheeple.

Often the question is an attempt to verify they have made the right choice in which group they followed. Are they worried they may have missed something that you knew and they didn't.

A master photography with a budget point and shoot will beat a beginner with a shiny DSLR. So in other words YOU matter more than the camera you are using.
Word! May I quote you?

I have a T shirt which might good for these situations. It reads "To Save Time Let's Assume I Know Everything."

I've heard those "discussion" among the Canikon crowd and haven't heard quite the superior disdain that I hear when they say "Oh, a Pentax" in a dismissive tone.

I usually go the other way around when they start snarking (usually the beginner owners who just shelled out a couple of grand). "Oh.. canikon eh?" *smug look* expensive lenses aren't they? bwahahahaha
