Why Pentax?

Pentax is my personal preference for several reasons. First, the body is a little bit smaller than comparable Canon or Nikon versions and seems to fit my hands a little bit better, making it more comfortable for me to use. I also prefer the layout of the dials and menus--they make a little more sense to my way of thinking. Although I have recently added one Sigma lens, I like the lineup of Pentax lenses. They cover a lot of ground, and I've been able to get the combination of quality, price, and range in any Pentax lens I have purchased. Best of all, all lens functions are available to me, because the lenses are specifically matched to my camera. Finally, I have found the Pentax line to be a very good value for the price. I have always found them to be affordable, while lacking nothing in quality. Perhaps someday I will outgrow my Pentax camera and lenses, but not anytime soon.
