Re: Discouraged by Pentax reliability

I have the exact same experience as you unfortunately. I finally just moved to Canon. My K-5 button fell off. Focus issues. Just an extremely poor built camera. I bought a 7D and never had a problem. Now use a IV and it is unreal to say the least compared to Pentax.

And the so called Pentaxians are the real problem with Pentax. It is never Pentax fault and they always have a answer.

I think Richo will put an end to most of the sorry build issues I hope. But most serious shooters have moved on long ago. Pentax will never be close to the big guys. But I have fun buying one body every few years to play with. And use some Pentax glass with. But just for something to do. I know it will be poor compared the the others.

I know a few guys that use it strictly as a novelty now. Fond memories but that is it for me.
