Does it make any sense to use Pentax in the wedding photography?

Most current DSLR's are all capable of producing wedding images regardless of brand or sensor size. In relation to Pentax the K5 as a body for wedding work is fantastic, attach a DA* 50mm to 135mm and if you know what you are doing you will achieve some stella wedding images.

take a look at this example

I've used Pentax K5's for about a 150 weddings now.
No problems so far.

I'd have thought that the single biggest advantage a K5 had over other DSLRs is the dynamic range. If ever I were to be called upon to shoot a wedding then that would be my camera of choice: the disparity between the dark suits of the men and the blinding white highlights of the wedding gown would be a major headache. Far more of a concern than sensor size.

But hopefully I'll be spared such a request!

It's funny how these old threads come around again, but Gareths work proved it then, I wonder if the OP did take up doing weddings..... jeff...
