Considering throwing in the towel with Pentax, some honest unbiased thoughts on the matter desired..
Nov 2, 2013

I have an older Pentax K-x body which is obviously not very valuable now, and a couple APS-c cheap entry lenses in the 18-55 and 50-200 ranges.

But I also have  a nice FA 1:1.4 50mm and a Sigma 1:1.8 EX DG 28m Macro.  I think both of these are decent lenses, someone correct me if I am wrong, full frame lenses.

My daughter needs  a bigger lens for her highschool yearbook work.

I am in a quandary as to my options.  I'd like to buy a good 50x500mm zoom in the $1500 range, but I cannot decide if I should stay with pentax, or abandon pentax and find one of the other "big 2" brands going forward.

It seems like Pentax is dwindling slowly.  Wondering if I should bail out before I make the next high dollar purchase.....

The only thing valuable I have left are the two prime lenses.....

I recognize that posting a doom and gloom question on a Pentax forum is subject to bias and I am NOT bashing Pentax.  Just trying to be realistic.  Was always a Pentax fan, but we cannot always be winners.....

Your honest thoughts.....
