Does DPReview have more competition? P*ntaxforums is pretty good on brand-related matters, but there is any number of other sites that have good information both on Pentax and more generally. Youtube, not least.

Micro 4/3 has taken a lot of the limelight, as have Fuji and Olympus brand-wise.

Also the character of DPReview has changed as digital photography has become more mainstream. There's much less of a pioneering feel about it, and I feel the sense of community has diminished.

The profusion of digital photos on line, from lousy to excellent, on every conceivable topic, is so massive that it's not as easy to get excited about the medium as it was a few years ago.

The alleged impending demise of Pentax used to generate a lot of traffic. The absence of all that is something to celebrate.
