popphoto.com annual contest. No Pentax winners
Dec 24, 2011

popphoto.com published their “18th Annual Readers' Photo Contest Winners” results. A total of 65 pictures, most of them outstanding. The cameras used went from an 8x10 view camera with reversal film, many top grade pro DSLR, a 20.000+ MF, a majority of mid-range DSLR down to enthusiast P/S.

I was surprised to see that not even one picture was taken with a Pentax. I would have expected to see at least one or two. At least a sign of the market share (maybe 3 or 4%).

Pentax users don’t bother with Popphoto contests? Or is there something else I don’t get? What do you think?
