I never thought it would happen, or at least not this suddenly. With a little extra money in my pocket and a little more coming along in a few months (being a student with almost no income leads to awesome tax returns), I was ready to take the plunge into investing in some serious glass. I looked at Pentax primes both old and new (and I still think Pentax has some of the best glass ever made, especially when it comes to value per dollar), and I couldn't bring myself to do it. I'm just too afraid. Pentax had a great thing going with the 645D. A medium format digital body with great lens support (great 645 lenses are abundant, and the mount was to be the same). It likely would have crushed something like a D3X as a studio camera, and would have cost less. They developed it. They built it. They showed it. They disappeared it. Rumors swirled around a full frame professional body (K2D/K3D). It never saw the light of day, if it ever existed. Pentax is one of the greatest that ever was, a legend in the camera business. However, when it comes time to really invest in equipment for a system, I want to know for sure that the professional bodies will be there when I need them. I just don't see the commitment to the top end of the range. I really don't regret buying Pentax. I think the K100D was the best entry-level camera on the market. I think the K200D is the best entry-level camera on the market. I learned everything I know on Pentax, and it's what got me interested in film (by accident, of course). It's just time to move on. Having decided this (and with a very minimal investment in the system), I am jumping ship. Based on my previous ranting and raving about which brands I hate and which I merely dislike, can anyone guess where I'm going?
