Re: Lack of 3rd party love for Pentax

While I will agree that not all the third party manufacturers make all their lenses in the Pentax mount, there are still quite a few available. I own four Sigma's 28-70 f2.8, 70-200 f2.8, 100-300 f4, and the 30 f1.4. For the majority of what I shoot  those fit the bill. My 100-300 is my favorite and sharpest lens. My only disappointment was when they discontinued it and released the 120-300 f2.8 without a Pentax mount. When you combine what Pentax has to offer in conjunction with the third parties, I really don't see a downside. Others may disagree, but for what I shoot there are plenty of choices.
