A cynical, tongue-in-cheek thread........

..... stemming from understandable issues with service in certain area's which is a problem that Pentax still has to iron out if it wishes to become a serious contender.

Pentax Australia seem to be better placed, but not had any issues which to comment on, although i'm sure one or two could. Percentage wise very few Pentax using pro's for the crop sensor's but obviously the 645 has garnered increasing support.

Pentax has focused on two definite ends of the spectrum, entry level / enthusiast and medium format fashion / landscape pro's, nothing inbetween.

I am very much looking elsewhere for my next purchase, D800/810 or 5D Mk3. FF just makes things that bit easier.
