Pentax's latest toy, the K-3 has more fps, more AF points, more MP, better metering, better viewfinder, USB 3.0, new AA feature ...Canon has plenty of incredible lenses which Pentax can NEVER match ... Canon's 7D with a 400mm, or 500mm or 600mm or 800mm lens will kick Pentax's a55 any day, even with their latest "toy".
And what has Canon given us recently? ...
So what you're saying is that unless you're using a zoom >= 400mm, there's no point in being on Canon?
FYI, the lenses I've mentioned above are not "Zooms", they are prime lenses
That being said, even the so called "cheap" Pentax smc DA 50mm f/1.8 Lens costs $182 and still has a plastic mounting plate, you can get Canon 50 f/1.8 II, with plastic mounting plate for $100. Pentax lenses are no match to Canon lenses, be it primes, or zooms ... forget lens quality, Pentax can't even make up their mind about what design they wanna go with, their lenses are the ugliest I've ever seen in my life, their choice of positioning green/red/gold/silver rings on lenses is always
a55 ways ... their lenses look like victims of gang ra9e ... their 560mm f/5.6 ED AW lens looks like a sad rip off from Canon L lenses ... their brand new AF360FGZ II Flash and $629 AF540FGZ II Flash are the height of ugliness ... Pentax AF-540 FGZ P-TTL Shoe Mount Flash costs $400, yet it has one of the worst recycle times of 6 seconds, has a plastic shoe mount, with lots of technical problems and is ugly as hell, even the cheap Yongnuo speedlites looks elegant and out perform the $400 Pentax flash, plus the Yonguno cost a fraction of Pentax flash systems ... the choice of lenses Pentax has are no match
to Canon's offering. So what I'm saying is unless Pentax has decent lenses, decent speedlites and at least one full frame sensor to grow into, there's no point in being on Pentax. Another disturbing thing is the name Pentax, sounds like pant!es ... can't think of hanging Pant!es (that too ugly ones) around my neck while I'm "shooting" ... Canon's name obviously sounds like a mighty Canon (I have no problem showing off my Canon while "shooting")
