Re: Pentax appeal

How are the ergonomics compared to other cameras you've used before?

dpreview says they're "really nice" and well-sorted".

From the dpreview Pentax K-5 review published December 2010:

"In our opinion this makes it one of the best APS-C DSLRs currently on the market. Image quality is now up there with the best of its competition, and all of the K-5's key systems are reliable and effective. Throw really nice ergonomics into the mixture and you have a compelling little camera that we have really enjoyed using.

From the dpreview Pentax K-30 Hands-on Preview published May 2012 (emphasis mine):

"Pentax has a long tradition of making very photographer-focused DSLRs, often eschewing the latest fashions to concentrate on providing cameras with well-sorted ergonomics and a focus on core photographic features such as good viewfinders ."

It is notable that more than 1.5 years after they reviewed the K-5, dpreview still says the K-5 is arguably the best, according to the the K-30 Preview (emphasis mine):

"This trend appeared to reach its peak with the K-5 - arguably the best APS-C DSLR currently on the market ."
