Pentax cameras are far from cheap, in fact they are well known for their durability and value for money. All the current cameras are weather resistant, even the base model. I have had a K10D, K20D, K3 and now I have a Pentax KP, which is the best camera I have had so far. I have also had a couple of Nikons, a D5100 and a D5300, both excellent but not as sturdy and also a Olympus OMD EM10ii, also good but again, not as good as the Pentax.Just wondering because they look a bit...cheap? Lower price is good and all but I don't want to get stuck on the wrong side of "you get what you pay for."
