Thanks Pentax for the largest selec... of APS designed lens

According to Ricoh and Photozone Pentax has the largest selection of purpose built APS lens of any brand. This brings the best performance for the lens, smallest size for the lens and many other attributes of a APS only lens.

Heck Pentax let users use any legacy lens with Shake Reduction and using only the cropped highest IQ portion of the field lens (back lens) output. That was great!

Pentax lacks very little to none if you include third party lens. Moreover every lens has Shake Reduction. Pentax also has a large selection of weather resistant lens low cost to high cost, that are field proven over the years to be very reliable.

The grass always looks greener on the other side of the fence. Ricoh has put money into the most needed areas such as autofocus, weather resistant reliable flashes, new weather resistant DA55-300mm ED WR lens (we have been crying for this for years now we have it!); and new lens! Pentax focus on the enthusiasts to Pros (645Z). Highest IQ shooting something the others don't have.

I bet most are happy with what they get for the money and it would be hard to exceed it with any other brand for the same price, weather-resistant, IQ, and be able to buy third party telephoto lens with IS if that's what you really want. Ricoh has done well.

Stop looking over the fence thinking others have it great. Really most are looking at us!

Quality control is way up. If you don't believe me...

Read every post going back six years and you will find these are great times to be a Pentax owner.
