I have not found that to be true at all, perhaps post your lens line up and I will check that.

Here you go:

15mm f/4 LTD, 21mm f/2.4 LTD, 31mm f/1.8 LTD, 35mm f/2.8 LTD macro, 43mm f/1.9 LTD, 70mm f/2.4LTD, 77mm f/1.8LTD, 100mm f/2.8 Macro WR, 60-250f/4.

Please note that you will need to find a set of replacement lenses that are sized like the Pentax Limited lenses and have similar build (metal barrels rather than plastic, and no bigger than the Pentax lenses), and all will have to be image stabilized.

I'm waiting.

No I don't. I was talking about my collection.

Pentax does not offer a path to FF, nether does it have many pro level lenses. I would never own a pentax.

YOU would have to find the equivalent Canon or Nikon lenses is you want to switch. If there aren't any, then you would stay with Pentax, but my post was to try to explain why pentax if so good, has so many great features, has so many great lenses is still niche market and is not mainstream like Canon or Nikon.

I named 3 reasons why, perhaps you could enlighten us as to why Pentax is still niche market.
