You have a point. Small size seems to be important. Several people have pointed out problems that Pentax is facing. When I read the reviews it seems that the nod does seem to go to Nikon, Canon and Sony.

Back to size. Canon has just come out with an SL1 which is tiny, but ergonomically great. So even one of the big boys is touting small.

So keep using your Pentax and I hope the brand hangs in there. I think it would be a shame if we loose more like we have lost Konica, and Miranda and others. But if Pentax fails, I believe you will be able to use your Pentax lenses with an adapter on a Canon or a micro 4/3, although manual focus.

I had Konica two decades ago and was crushed to see them fail. So now I am doing Canon and hope that I never am stuck with a bunch of their lenses and no new bodies to use them.
