Amateur Photographers (UK) Predicts End for Pentax

I've been using some sort of k-mount camera for decades. But we all fall for the hype in some way in the end. I have a K3 and recently (last couple of years) a Nikon D500. It is not a better camera all round. The media made me think the D500 was the ultimate camera in every way. The Pentax is better at some things and the Nikon better at others. This is true of almost every camera. You just have to choose what is best for you in your budget. Everything else is pretty meaningless. There is no doubt that the D500 get's a better press than it should and the K3 less publicity, especially when you take into account the Nikon costs nearly three times as much.

In the end it matters not how defensive we are, Pentax will survive if it makes a profit and it won't if it doesn't.

Thanks, yes. mainly experimenting at the moment till I get my Star Adventurer tracker but even in my town (Basildon) it can be okay, especially after 1.00 am when all the street lights are turned off. Seems to coincide with my neighbour turning on his bathroom light! Mind I wouldn't want to venture out too far on my own round here! But I can see Andromeda in my bins and one night just about with my naked eye (and I have got the very early stages of cateracts as well!). I have found out where there are some dark skies within about a 30 minute drive so will try them at some point. Incidentally, is the Milky Way still visible low to the SW at the moment?
Thanks again for your interest.

Unfortunately that would never interpret as appearing "3" time better. It is difficult to say but a definite improvement that you would notice. I haven't done any side by side comparisons as I traded up so it is a subjective opinion. Others may think it is more significant.

It's all about opinions and I found the review very informative. I will now read others and make my own mind up based on what I shoot, what I can afford and what features are most important to me. It's not that difficult. Reviews are for information, they are not there to tell you what to do!
