I'm always hoping for Pentax too. They have pretty good products, especially for enthusiasts, but never really seem to get a foothold.

Me, too. Their SLRs and lenses are really nice.I especially appreciate that they build bigger pentaprism also into their smaller DLSRs and generally have a lighter more compact design without compromises in functionality.

In the lens department they are lacking  long teles, but there you have the Sigma 150-500 mm OS and Sigma 50-500mm OS with Pentax fit.

If I would not have gone Canon with the EOS 300D (just a bargain these days, and Pentax*ist nowhere to be had) I would have stayed with Pentax, as I had a Ricoh film SLR with K-mount lenses. Sometimes I think of aquiring a K-30 18-55mm WR + 50-200mm WR for long outdoor trips (and out of solidarity with Pentax), but building up two systems is just a waste of money.

However, it would be a real shame to see Pentax SLRs gone!
