Why Pentax is so awfully marketed?
Sep 10, 2013

I am not a Pentax shooter. Just looked at Amazon US top 100 cameras today, and noticed that there is not a single Pentax or Ricoh product there. Which is surprising given that Pentax k-30 is by far the best value in small DLSRs, and Pentax WG-3 GPS is very cool underwater camera at decent price, and we Americans LOVE value.

On the other hand, the hopelessly outdated and underspecced (basically junk) Canon T3i is still the most sold DSLR at #4 in the total list, at higher price than k-30. Or SX50, now even after FZ70 release. Sheesh, ancient T3 at #11!!

What is wrong with them? Or maybe Amazon ranks different colors separately, so sales or colorful Pentax cameras fall off the list?
