Re: Why use Pentax?

One reason that you don't see too many Pentaxes is because their distribution is poor, at least here in Canada.  You can go into a big camera store and see display cases full of Canons and Nikons, but nothing from Pentax.  My local store is huge and the only Pentax DSLR they ever had was an old *istD.  They finally sold it last year!

Picking the name *istD killed their market share too.  Nobody knew how it was pronounced.  I still don't.

I got my dslr directly from Pentax Canada basically because I already had a few lenses and I have been extremely happy with it.  Nice to use and outstanding quality pictures.  I had a Canon Rebel for a while but the kit lens wasn't that good, and the IS version even worse.  For amateur use the Pentax is hard to beat.
