Just been into my local Pentax pro centre to buy a D-BG4 grip for my recently acquired K5 and was chatting to a couple of the staff.

Glad you like your D-BG4 and K5.  Battery grip is nice to have in certain situations.

They were saying that they're really noticing a difference with the Pentax company nowadays:

Yes, they hired this guy as their new rep.

1.  The sales reps are much more visible - the Pentax guy has been at the store twice in two weeks

Haven't seen one around here in 15 year.  But I still like the products.

2.  The products are superb and better built than the equivalent competitors with some really superb quality features

He wouldn't be a good rep if he didn't say that.

Far better built than rival brands (feel beautiful in the hand), weather sealed unlike the competition, are cheaper than both Nikon and Canon and remain more compact and portable than Nikon and Canon.

...And now a word from our sponsors.

The reasons I bought the K5 over the D7000:

Metal build compared to plasticky

Not.  Both feel solid to me.

It's time for the British middlemen and retailers to stop fleecing us...

If the product is as good as you assert they're not fleecing you are they?

As I said at first I'm glad you like the product.  Enjoy your photography!
