Re: Pentax is not for the faint hearted

I guess what makes Pentax really special are their users, which are not attracted by the big names of Canon and Nikon.

I would roughly divide the Pentaxians into two groups:

1) The photoenthusiasts, who know everything about the Pentax specific benefits which have been named more than once in this thread. Many of these people are semiprofessionals and they like to play and experiment in their work. The only thing traditional about them is their preferred choice of black body finish.

2) The casual newbie or wanna-be-photoenthusiast. These people don't know much about Pentax in particular, they are simply attracted to it because they feel Pentax is different from Canon & Nikon. These users are non-conformistic individuals and they like their camera body in a unusual colour.
