Re: Is the Pentax model really important?

I basically agree with you but today anything lesser than the K-3 does not make sense since they throw the cameras after you for free. Ok, the K-5ii maybe had legendary rendering.

Lenses are far more important. And light is far more important still.

In addition I personally believe that 24mp was the cornerstone of the market. Just like nothing important happened in the film market in the 1990's nothing important has happened in the DSLR market since 2013 when Pentax started to use the 24mp APS-C sensor. Smartphones are becoming really good but the do nothing in terns of photographic performance that we haven't had since 2013.

We now see the natural result of this in that the camera market hf as no development and is slowly dying off. But we can continue to use the cameras we have and buy replacement as needed. And maybe concentrate on photography.
