Re: Discouraged by Pentax reliability

Sorry you are having bad luck with PK cameras.  Last year I sold more cameras and lenses than I bought.  Doesn't always happen that way   I just said that to let you know I wind up trying a lot of different cameras.  I've been very lucky with my gear and I can only recall one minor problem with a Pentax camera and one with a Pentax lens.  I've only ever shot with one Canon camera, a 6D, and it also gave no problems at all and the Canon glass has worked flawlessly for me.  With Nikon, same story, and I have a much longer history with Nikon digital cams.  The D600 I was using didn't even have the "dust/oil" problem everyone wrote about.  All modern cameras from the big makers seem to have pretty good QA/QC from my perspective so I don't know what else to tell you.  I hope you have better luck with your future gear.
