Re: Why use Pentax?
In reply to Jake64, Mar 21, 2013

For following reasons:

I had Pentax glass lying around, and Pentax was the only make that enabled to use my Pentax-M 50mm f/1,7    Pentax-A 85mm f/1,4  lenses, among others. I was able to buy Pentax-F 28mm f/2,8 for little money and these all work very good on my K100 and my K-5. I also had a Canon A-1 with FD lenses.... but can't use them on any Canon SLR

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?
