Re: If not Pentax, then who?

If not Pentax, then who? Who has the best APS lens selection and who makes the best lenses in terms of IQ across the entire lineup?

Well, Fuji has been releasing some serious stuff. Small, light, fast primes, a wide-angle zoom, a fast kitlens that supposedly doesn't perform like a kit (in a good way), and two f/2.8 zooms and a supertele are on the way.

It's just a shame that there's no real second hand market for that system yet. It makes switching systems a lot more expensive.

The thing also is, most of the DA* zooms are actually available for other mounts - under the Tokina brand. Different construction (no SDM - not sure if that's a downside), same optics. Just a quick search also showed up a Tokina 10-17 fisheye, 12-24 rectalinear and 35/2.8 macro. Sound familiar?

And if you take into account camera, lenses and the photographers, who has the most memorable photographs?

?? What do you mean?
