Yes, Pentax has had its blunders (K-01, Q), but it's also had home runs (K10D, K-5, 645D..) and puts out some fantastic glass as well.

The reason the K-5 is selling for 2/3 its original price is that the MSRP was too high to begin with, and that it's near the end of its lifecycle. It's no different than most other bodies in that regard. Are you going seriously going to argue that the GX1 and EP-3 suck because they've recently started sliding in price?

I agree, Pentax is a good brand, good cameras and good lenses
