Dear Mr. Pentax,
I’m sorry to say that I’m going to end our relationship. It’s been an amazing six years but to be frank, you just weren’t cutting it anymore. It was time for me to move up in the camera world. It’s time for me to say good-bye. But before I let you go forever, I just wanted to thank you for the good times.
Thank you for taking crisp landscape shots in landscape mode, on my many camping trips with Jon.
Thank you for your museum mode and accompanying me to the Louvre and the Musee de Orsay.
Thank you for continuously shooting funny face contests between me and Jon.
Thank you for letting me pretend to take artsy photos.
Thank you for joining me for college and resisting the urge to judge.
Thank you for occasionally making me look skinny.
Thank you for sunset mode and the photographs to display its awesomeness.
Thank you for being quick enough to capture images of Tex as a puppy.
Thank you for being small enough to easily fit into the smallest wristlet.
Thank you for priceless photos of family and friends.
It’s been an amazing run, Mr. Pentax, but you weren’t without your fair share of woes. I won’t miss the photos blurry of their own accord, or the automatic focus that won’t photograph what I want it to.
True it’s mostly been grand, but now I with Mr. Canon I have more control over my photos. It will be less about his limitations and more about mine. So thank you Mr. Pentax, for being the best you could be. With Mr. Canon, I hope to be the best I can be.
Goodbye. I wish I could say I won’t miss you. But I might.
