Reading this thread submerged me once again in the wonderful land beyond the looking glass that is the human psyche.
Some of you actually made an attempt at explaining the reasoning behind the statement of the Pentax official. Others gave me an idea of what their experiences are with both systems.
Iíd like to thank them for that.

I have had Pentax (D)SLRís for more than 30 years. In all that time I kept experimenting with my cameraís. I still do.
Once in a while though, I question myself and my relationship to people and things. Sometimes doubts will rise and closing my eyes wonít make them go away. Especially when my photography teacher shows me what his MILC is capable of or when he sent me the link that started this thread.
I think I will sit this one out until the dust had settled. In the meantime Pentax it will remain.
Gentlemen (and women), ďlíincident est clos!Ē.

I was expecting Pentax would finally join the mirrorless fray. Not so and maybe for very good reasons.
Not the reasons I read in this article. The reaction of the Pentax official sounds almost otherworldly and alienated.
Is this for real?

A new kind of sled dog emerges as the climate keeps warming up.
Leaving behind the human propelled buggy in time and space.

Saab disappeared in 2012.
I still donít understand why.
Numerous articles were written trying to explain the demise of a brand of cars that had proved its worth many times.
The only remaining truth was that the take over by General Motors turned out to be hostile and that Saab was sacrificed on the altar of mass production and mediocrity. One competitor less to deal with.
Pentax seems to have undergone its share of mergers and takeovers as well but at least there are no in house adversaries (correct me if Iím mistaken).
Pentax was probably in a lot more danger when Samsung tried to dabble in the DSLR market.
Anyways.
My Pentax SLR is still very much alive and I am sure my K5 will survive for quite a while.
I will quietly sit this one out and move on to the next Pentax when I feel like it.

Hi there!
I have been reading this thread with interest.
Being a newbie in the DSLR field in which I transcended after tens of years of hobbyist SLR photography, I started following a full-fledged photography course.
The thing is that our first year teacher kept banging us over the head with arguments to go for a FF aka 35 mm DSLR.
To him an APS-C sensor was something you tolerate in first and second year.
After that you'd definitely want a FF if you want to be taken seriously as a photographer.
The comments in this thread seem to put those propositions in a different perspective.
I "progressed" from a second hand K100D super to a K5 in two years.
Looks like I have a lot of distance to cover... :-)
