The most important reason is that I consider myself a Pentaxian! If it is not clear what I mean I can say that in our age the traditional religions are not good enough for us. So being a Pentaxian or Nikonian is somehow our time's religious affiliation. You can not be a Christian and go to Mecca for pilgrim!

Second- when I see a person with a serious Nikon in the field I ask him/her politely: Is that machine able to take a photograph?

Old Takumars and all M42 lenses are compatible and using them on modern K5 is a joy for me. Pentax has got the limited range of lenses.

The name of course: What is D7000? It sounds like a beginner camera and what would be the upgrade? D95000??? K5 is a decent name.
The look. K5 is a very sexy and handsome camera!

I do not think any sane person can ask for more reasons! Good luck with your choice.

Regards,

Moji
