    One model does not a reputation make. Where was Pentax all this time? And
    now you think that a significant percentage of buyers are going to abandon
    the heavy hitters and jump over to Pentax? I can't imagine that happening.
    I could be wrong. I hope I am.

    Selling the *ist D, which is an excellent camera.

    I did not say that significant number will abandon the heavy hitters but I
    can certainly see them regain a good enough share to stay in business, if
    only they can get the marketing right, they certainly have a good enough
    product in the K10D and K100D.

  4. Making some quite excellent cameras like the *istDS and K100D, both of
    which were arguably the best in their classes when released.
    "Significant"? No, probably not - although you'd be surprised at the
    number of postings over the last few days on dpreview from current
    owners of other systems who are indeed planning on switching.

    Anyhow, I never said that many would switch. I was replying to your
    comment about someone just getting into the game today. Believe it or
    not, there are folks out there who do not yet own *any* DSLR, and the
    K10D is going to look like a slam dunk to many of them. I don't
    understand why you'd recommend they spend an extra $500 to get a lesser
    camera.
