  • Gear collectors are good, they keep buying stuff :-P But no, I really don't think most of us are like that. A favourite saying of mine: Pentax is beating Fuji with the Q . Harsh, isn't it? When ...
  • Edit is broken. That's supposed to be: Ricoh is not willing to to drop everything, take heavy losses for years for the hope that things would somehow improve - in an overly competitive market - ...
  • Yes, and this is why they can't abandon the K-mount user base - Ricoh is not willing to support No, and I don't understand why supposed Pentaxians likes the idea of K-mount being abandoned so much. ...
  • Ricoh want to become a major camera player - targeting the 3rd position IIRC - in the intermediate term. Sorry, but that's plain wrong - and it might spell the end of Ricoh Imaging/Pentax, if ...
  • Yes. The problem with the curved sensors is that they can be optimized for certain focal lengths, while an ILC camera - DSLRs in special - have to work with a wide range of lenses. And the old ...
  • All I wanted was to point out that PF's moderation is a bit lax regarding anti-Pentax and anti-Pentaxian posts, following the accusations of "Pentax is a religion there" made by some. I was ...
  • And you were never attacked for your opinion on the 20-40 (or did I miss something?) You are intentionally mixing your off-topic excursion and name calling with legitimate criticism. Well, they're ...
  • Apologies for my poor English; I think it was understandable, though. We all know what they are (and FTR they're no longer a company). And as I proved, one could do more than that - even name ...
  • Yet you said that cameras launched this year - i.e. the 645Z - are no longer "new" and should not discussed on that section (Pentax News and Rumors) ;-) But my point was just to counter the opinion ...
  • Sorry, those lenses are low volume so a Pentax version is uncertain (they did not announce it in K-mount). Sigma have several long zooms in K-mount, so it's not like we're missing options. Alex
  • The Tamron? Indeed, no Pentax version (at least for now). Pentax will launch a long telezoom, 120-410mm-ish (ignoring current rumors and just eyeballing it from the roadmap) and likely f/5.6-ish ...
  • Now it's Sony, Fuji, Samsung, Olympus, Panasonic, Kodak, Lytro, Lomo, Xiaomi... OK, I admit, I've made up Lytro ;-) Alex
  • Thanks for the clarification, and apologies for making assumptions. There just aren't many reliable rumors/leaks about the Pentax FF, and those that exist are discussed there (and here). Sorry, ...
  • I consider it to be some sort of a commercial site :) They have deals with some sellers (like BHPhotovideo and Adorama, not sure if there are others), and they'll get a small percentage out of ...
  • And why do you think so? PF is supported by user subscriptions, if you're wondering about money. Alex
  • Well, a brand forum is supposedly dedicated to people who choose the said brand, so - unless they're masochists or somehow threatened to use it - they like it. It's therefore normal for a slight, ...
  • Their mods don't need a reason to ban someone, they could make up something completely ridiculous if they feel like it. So our enthusiastic Sony fan could very well be innocent; but I'd still want ...
  • You can't be serious. That's the PentaxIsDoomedForums.com we're talking about! Alex
  • Replied in I'm game.
    Even after the clarification, you're still claiming that? I'm afraid we have another "equivalence" fan here, which simply labelled me based on not accepting its beliefs. Why do you always resort to ...
  • Replied in I'm game.
    I have answered. You did not read. Instead you deviated the discussion into yet another dizziness-inducing going in circles pseudo-discussion, in which you're just trying to catch me off-guard. Yep ...
