New DSLR users BUY Pentax

Reason #1 - Price and availability of used Pentax bodies.
Still amazed at what old IST bodies can do.

Reason #2 - Price and availability of Pentax glass.
70s era manual prime lenses.
The lens review section of this forum...

Reason #3 - Did I say price enough?
Piece together a used 50mm kit for under $200.

Ummmmmmmmm - I've taken pictures with my cell phone. And I cart around 40 pounds of Pentax and Manfrotto gear when I go out normally.

I'm sure you mean 'Help save the internet from crummy cell phone photographers?

As to buying PENTAX, you're preaching to the choir here

That smartwatch concept is equal parts cool and ridiculous.

There is a lack of AF glass for Pentax compared to Canon/Nikon/Sony and I think that hurts them a bit.
The bodies are well priced, no questions there.


But being honest the s/h market is mostly manual focus lenses which is ok, but people like autofocus no question
