We can all tell you're a Nikon user, as you haven't taken the time to understand why you're using Nikon, nor can you figure out why people use Pentax. You went with Nikon because everybody else seemed to. Now you're expecting other people to tell you why you should be using Pentax. Are you seeing a pattern yet? No?

I know why I'm a Nikon user. It's called shopping around for a dslr for a couple of months and realizing that it doesn't really matter what you use. Then after this realization, I found someone selling a D5100 with 18-55 and 55-200 lenses with a memory card and a bag. Price? $500. Camera had 750 shutter count. Just how can you say no to that? I'm capable as an amateur photographer but I'm not a semi pro or pro but I know many people around here are. I don't see anything wrong with asking around to learn about other manufacturers and what made people use their equipment. It's nice to hear from someone who has been using a particular brand for 30 years because their reasons interest me. Plus I get to learn a little something along the way. I am not sure why some are regarding my approach as market research or malicious.
