Identifying that your needs don't match a system's offerings and moving on to one that does what you need is perfectly smart. Telling someone who wants to do that to just stick with it and something might crop up in a few years is not, it's a case of loyalty overriding sense. But if that offends you I'm perfectly cool with that. Offence is taken, not given.

Why is it that someone not getting what they need from a brand feels like an insult to you or your gear? If it works for you, great! If someone else has has found it doesn't work for them, fine...what's with the defensive rant? As you point out...you bought what you wanted and you're still happy with it, so what's the problem?

The great thing about photographic gear is that the trade in value is usually pretty good, so a commitment to a brand doesn't have to be for life. All I'm saying is that someone shouldn't prevent themself getting what they need out of a sense of loyalty for a corporation.

I love Pentax and their camera design and the Pentax system currently does everything I need. This is why I'm definitely sticking to it for the time being.

I totally understand loyalty to a brand you like, and a sadness at having yourself or someone else choose to make a change. But an unwavering fanatical loyalty to a brand, in the face of the fact that it simply doesn't do what you need and that another brand would allow your photography to grow, is not helpful at all.

Yes, Pentax are great - but let's face it, Canon and Nikon do actually make excellent cameras too, and the overall ecosystem of lenses, accessories and sales/support availability are orders of magnitude larger and there are many circumstances where unquestioning support of Pentax could harm your own photography. In my case I am slowly building a part time photography business and hope one day for it to be a full time living. There is no way (without significant changes) that Pentax would be able to give the support I would need to earn my living with them and so I will inevitably move on. Sad, but necessary.
