Re: A bad idea whose time has come?

I'm a Pentaxian who went over to the Dark Side of Sony and have not regretted it. In the beginning it was great to use all my Pentax glass with a manual adapter, but over time I got tired of the fiddliness and started to buy Sony-specific Tamron and Sigma glass. Now I rarely use my K-3 except when I'm going into adverse weather conditions and don't want to risk my first-string equipment.

Never was interested in the K-1 because my glass is mostly crop sensor, and I got tired of waiting for the K-3III to come along. My A7Riii's 42 mp is ever so much better than Pentax 24mp and 36mp sensors, especially for cropping while birding.

I'm beginning to think Pentax is a great old brand that has had its day.

H1a, H3v, Spotmatic, MX, ME Super (2), KX, *ist DS, K10D, K20D, K-5, K-01, K-3. Am I a Pentaxian yet?
