Re: Pentax appeal

As a total novice and cheapskate, at first I was attracted to the price and features. Pentax was cheaper and had more to offer. When I finally tried one (a K100d) I loved it. It felt like you could club somebody to death with it and then take a photo of the dead body.

The UI design is elegant and just seems "right." They also have a personality and quirkiness that's oddly appealing.

I happen to have a Nikon now and it takes great pictures. But there's always the irritation of knowing they've channeled me into the marketing segment that suits their profit margin best. In order to compete with the "big boys" Pentax has to offer a little more. The new K-30 sure looks temping from where I am now.
