Ih his blog, everyone's bete noir Ken Rockwell surprisingly (or not) really dumped on Pentax in comparing it to other brands. He says: "Opening my Pentax K3 II and some Pentax lenses also inspired this article — in a different way. Pentax is pretty junky, like it's some sort of kid's toy or counterfeit iPod product. The packing is cheap, and the thin cardboard is dinkier than used for many of my kid's toys, and Pentax' graphics look to inspire the worst in people. Trying the K3 II, I had to laugh: autofocus sounds like its from the 1980s. They must be kidding, but it also solidifies why Nikon and Canon own the DSLR market: because they make much better cameras."
