Future resale value of Pentax camera bodies and lenses may be a positive.
In reply to saralecaire, Apr 4, 2012

Pentax gear has tended to have a lower resale value than other brands, especially camera bodies. I will be watching to see how this new pricing will affect used body as well as lens pricing in future. If Pentax maintains higher prices for resale then I can see this as being potentially on the positive side of the issue. So I'm not seeing this as being completely from a negative viewpoint.

I think not jumping over to over brands isn't necessarily warranted unless particular gear needs is only available from other brands.

Wait and see for now.
