Re: Sony user considering switching to Pentax

The the better question is.... what will you use it for? If video is going to be a big piece of the equation, the Sony wins, hands down. Pentax has no apparent interest in doing video well enough for the enthusiast or semi-pro.

Based on the recent K-5 II ( yawn ) announcement, I'd not bother to go from Sony to Pentax. Sony has a robust roadmap, Pentax seems to be wandering in the weeds. When Pentax starts announcing products that make them look like a "going forward concern" then perhaps they have earned that. I'm not surprised, in that there is always a post acquisition period where the deck chairs are being re-arranged, but I would have expected by now some hints of a way forward would have emerged. It hints at this being an intellectual property acquisition rather than a brand acquisition.
