Re: Why use Pentax?

I had pentax film slrs, lenses and accessories and they worked with pentax DSLR's so it seemed a no brainer.  Since then I've added Canon and tried Nikon but have stuck mainly with Pentax because either the Canon or Nikon is unreasonably large or the lower end models which are smaller have had lots of features removed, for instance micro focus adjust. Both my low/mid end pentax K-r and K30 have micro focus adjust and I need them. In Canon I have to go to the 7D which is just stupidly large (IMHO). My Canon 30D had to go to Canon for af adjustment and my sigma 100-300 f4 HSM had to go to sigma along with my 30D for af adjustment, far too much hassle when I could have dialed the af adjustment in on my Pentax kit, plus the 30D and sigma is a large heavy setup when compared to my K30 and Pentax FA*300 4.5, no contest which one I take these days.
