Re: Why use Pentax?

I have been with Pentax for 30 years.  Although I bought a 1st D in 2004 I used it very little and continued to shoot film (mainly Kodachrome) up until 2010 using an LX, PZ-1P, Super Program and KX.  Now I shoot with a K-5 and a K-01.  Keep the 1st D for a backup.  Pentax has never really given me a reason to go to another manufacturer for DSLRs. I do own and use a Fuji f30 and a Sigma DP2X.

For Pentax size (not applicable to the PZ-1P!), ergonomics, durability along with shake reduction and their wonderful FA and DA primes just make it the ideal system for me.  I also have never been one to follow the thundering herd.
