I do not own Pentax.
I do enjoy very much reading about all brands and learning about them.
I find this evolution of the K mount very interesting.

I’ve been a Pentax fan since the 70s. Just purchased a K1 II and am looking forward to using all my M42 and K- mount lenses on it. Pentax doesn’t get the love it deserves these days.

I have also been using Pentax since the 70's and I agree with you. Never did get the respect it deserves.

I started still photography in 1970 with the most reasonably priced camera I could find that had the most options that I thought were necessary. That happened to be a Petri. Several years later to replace that camera, the one that came closest to it with similar controls and feel in my hands was Pentax K-1000 SE. I've been using Pentax since then. There was a lot of respect and dedication to Pentax back then. I don't know what happened that its reputation declined over the years. I do know that I still respect and appreciate the Pentax brand. Some brands seem to cater to the "snobbish" side of people, they seem more like a status symbol rather than a quality issue.

I did see an article today on Petapixel that nearly half of the reviews of some cameras were fake and not totally objective or reliable. It claimed the fake reviews were mostly for cell phone cameras and a couple high end cameras. Made my think how glad I am that I use Pentax, I feel their reviews are more honest and objective.

True...I also own the K1 II (and KP, K3). It is a joy to use, especially with the 150-450mm. The amount of detail with it's 36 megapixel sensor is just incredible....
