The cameras are not as durable? Fiddlesticks! My Pentax Sptomatic that I inherited works like to this day, and it saw countless hours in the field of the Western United States in my Grandpa's hands! And Pentax has the best primes in the business! I love my collection of old screwmounts, which work fabulously with my K200D!

Pentax shooters, I'm curious, what is the appeal of Pentax to you? : ) I noticed they aren't the fastest cameras, nor full frame nor are they the most durable, nor the highest resolution yet Pentax still survives and thrives whereas something like Minolta has already fallen by the wayside.

Is it the history, the ergonomics, the "alternative-ness" of it? I'm curious. For the record I shoot with Canon but I've always had a sentimental soft spot for Pentax, and frankly I have no idea why since I've never used any of their cameras.
