Shake Reduction compensates for "slower" apertures. You can consider that and I know it does work for many Pentax users.

Your Canon and non-IS lens on it won't allow you good shutter speeds even if you have an f1.4 lens — Pentax K-30 plus an f/2.8 lens will outperform that Canon combo handheld in low light.

So I think you should thoroughly explore Pentax system before jumping into conclusions about lens "speeds" because Canon and Nikon users often come with such prejudices and think of Pentax lenses as "slow" — it's the whole system that matters. Their systems are actually slower.

nice statement without supporting info. pentax is loud. there I can do it too

A camera and f/1.4 lens, both with no IS.

B camera with SR that has around 3 stops of SR gain and an f2–2.8 lens.

Sorry but image stabilization or no image stabilization does not make a camera system "slower".  A ludicrous and a inaccurate adjective!

What do you think it will work in your favour?
