Yes, lets make every camera have identical MP and identical features.  That way, no one will have a choice, and 24mp is so much better than 22 mp.
 
The idea that 2mp more or less makes a camera company better is not unique, but its not right either.

Well, no need to be so dramatic... sensors are not everything that define the characteristics of an image :)

BTW Pentax is a smaller company than Canikon, it's hard for them to keep the pace in the R&D division.

Small it maybe but didn't Pentax bring out the first commercial 35mm AF lenses.

I also like the Pentax idea of fitting the IS inside the camera rather than having it fitted to every IS lens you might have in your possession! Fewer things to wrong.

it works well, except it doesn't do much to keep the price of lenses down.  But likely a good step for a low volume mfr.

PENTAX LENS PRICES ARE TAKING A LEAP UP TONITE!

some deals to be had on body bundles and the 645D just dropped about $1800 to $7k.
