Re: Why use Pentax?

The above is just a bunch of generalities, with one specific example. It's true that the Pentax 16-50 doesn't fare well at current pricing. But where are the reasonably priced WR lenses from other makers? Hint, there are none.

I understand WR is a big selling point and can understand people who put that on their priority list. For me however, IQ is at the top of the priority list. I have been shooting SLR for 4 years and never once had the urge to shoot in the rain, or on a windy beach.

You must have much better control over the weather than I do. I was on a shoot in Death Valley in February. There were 50 mph winds and a good deal of sand in the air. Staying in the hotel and waiting for better weather wasn't an option.
