Why not a Pentax?
Jul 19, 2005

I'm not really a Pentax guy, but I guess I've alway admired their products. I am even envious of my stepson's K1000. (It takes pictures just as good or better than any other camera in our house).

Anyway, to get to my point, I recently shopped for and bought a new DSLR. I did my research, read lots of reviews and then set off for the local camera dealers. After spending time with salespeople at three different stores it came to my attention that not one of them ever offered to show me a Pentax *ist. They all had one right next to the competition. But the salespeople showed me the D70, the D50, the Rebel XT and 20D, along with the E-300. To be honest, I wasn't really looking at the *ist, but still. It seems to be an excellent camera. Why didn't they try to sell me one?
