You are right - Pentax have always been Photographer's Cameras.

I'm not quite sure that you really mean "photographers" cameras Dean ?

Why not? He's not claiming exclusivity, so no photographers should feel attacked for not using Pentax.

I completely understand and that is why I've heard this claim before..... a bit like a "drivers car"

However I suspect it's a statement made out of emotion and preference rather than substance.

A drivers car is something like an Alfa Romeo or porsche which,in the right hands will reward a skilled driver to go faster than the average car.

Pentax are nice cameras, solidly built, a slightly older but slowly renewing lens lineup, very good image quality arguably marginally higher in some respects to some others but not necessarily overall, but relatively poor AF.

Do they make better images in the hands of a skilled photographer? Not really...

They're not sold on hype, marketing, video capabilities...
