Why Are Pentax with Prime Selection Grabbing Some of Mirrorless Market?

Oh you value IQ so little.

The Penax is 20mm shorter, 10mm narrower and 100 grams lighter. You would choose inferior IQ, DOF control, better high ISO noise over a small size difference. I think that is crazy.

Now if you told me you bought the Pentax because it was half the price of the FF, I would say ok, I can see the trade off but if the units are near the same price I think a tiny difference in size like the one in your link is not a good reason to choose it.

If you showed me a pockatable camera, I could see why you might want that over a FF too. That is not crazy.

Right now the D600 is $1999. If it dropped to $1499, why would anyone consider an APS-C. Unless they are entry level wanting a Rebel 650 which is at 700 dollars with a lens. It was not long ago that lowest priced FF DSLRs were $3300 the price of the original 5d.

Here's a reason:

You are using size as your only point


The canon is almost half the weight, much smaller. So obviously it must be the better choice using your logic right?
