I would rather look at the entire system instead of just one camera. You are just affected by the massive branding Canon has done a great job in.
take a walk outside. 80% of young kids holding DSLR are canon users. not cause they are the best, but because they are so called "branded". everyday see canon advert on TV. used to see the 550d. now its the 60D's turn.
can't fault Canon for their marketing success... that's the name of the game isn't it?
Get more DSLRs out to market, which would inadvertently translate to greater sales for lenses and everything else.
You think Pentax wouldn't jump at the chance to be in Canon's shoes?
If people wanna buy into a certain brand BECAUSE of the brand name, then so be it. Just admit it straight-off and don't hide behind "oh.... my ____ can't give me as nice colours as Canon"
that, to me, is laugh-able
why you feel the regret? My first camera was a Pentax. It was my best camera. It went up mountains with me and to deserts without giving any trouble. The last place was in South Pole. No joke...
I left my camera behind for 5 years in South Pole because I had to leave with minimum barang barang on a small plane. Last year I brought back my baby and it is sitting proudly in my showcase.
So tell us here...what's wrong with your Pentax K20D?
Seriously, if you really can't sleep because you own inferior brand, then just sell your camera and buy the superior brand. That will save a lot of troubles. Nothing wrong with buying something because of the brand.
so after TS go canon.. might start a thread asking canon or nikon better?
As wad TS stated, he is being troubled by the brand and it is the 2nd time he posted the same thing. I wont be surprise that a 3rd thread comparing xxx brand with xxx brand again from him.
Every brand have their pros and cons, not 1 brand is better then the other.
Lets take for example canon is the best brand. If everyone thinks the same way, i can say nikon, pentax, sony etc... they will have to close their current business and start on a new. (Everyone is going for canon, the rest eat air)
Treasure what u have now is the correct thing to do rather then comparing.
FYI, i'm using a pentax k-x, and i'm proud of it.

Look what "inferior" brand can do in the right hand. It's the man behind the gear that matters.
Looks like TS MIA already....
Sola Scriptura, Sola Gratia, Sola Fide, Solus Christus, Soli Deo Gloria.
life is so short dont need to get upset over a camera brand. Want to change just change. Just do whatever makes you happier.
Alot of people here including me come here and compare which camera and lenses is best and forget to go out and shoot...
you need to spend more time with your camera rather than clubsnap .. shoot more and married to your cam
