I am a Nikon user but I am far from a fanboy. My question is, why do people choose Pentax over big hitters like Nikon and Canon? I don't think I have ever seen anyone using a Pentax DSLR in person or in a photo. I have combed through dozens of photos of photographers but they all apper to be using Nikon and Canon products. I also looked into wedding and studio photographers. The ones that do mention what equipment they use, it is never Pentax. Is that initself the allure; that few use it and it feels more special?

Thanks!

A couple of reasons, for me it is by far the best AWB in artificial light, great Auto ISO implementation, in body stabilization, and good JPEG output straight from the camera. Great cameras for trade shows, concerts and events where a large number of photos is needed quickly, and they are good enough you don't have to process most of them.
