On Sigma introduces Photo Pro 5.5 with Monochrome mode news story (19 comments in total)

This news is more recent than Nikon's (check the time stamp).
Question, Why is this article pushed down the list?
I almost missed it.
Normally articles are posted chronologically.
Am I missing something?

On Leica invites entries for its Oskar Barnack Award 2013 news story (34 comments in total)

Except for the under 25 category applicants must be a professional photographer.
What constitutes a professional photographer?
As it isn''t made clear, is it open to interpretation?

On Photokina 2012: Interview - Sun Hong Lim of Samsung article (100 comments in total)
In reply to:

kff: I would buy a new NX with Wi-Fi, but they don't have AF adapter for K mount lenses ... :(

He said AF I didn't.
I tried to give some information to a fellow poster as an alternative.
Why do you have a problem with this?

CameraLabTester: Pentax used to be running with Champions in the film era.

I wonder what happened...

Reasons:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.

Pentax users please don't get upset and blow your top. Truth hurts.

It used to be a very very good brand of a camera.

.

@ Boerseuntjie,
Pentax used to use Samung sensors e.g. K7.
K5 and K30 use Sony sensors.

Of course you wouldn't believe the daily mail uk article as it disagrees with your point of view.

On Pentax announces X-5 DSLR-like 26x zoom 16MP CMOS superzoom news story (408 comments in total)
In reply to:

JesperMP: X-5 ?? Forgive me for thinking it was a replacement for K-5.

I think that naming it X-5 is a stab at all the "X"-named cameras from the other camera brands.

Nothing wrong with this camera per se. It is not for me, but for everyone in the market for an ultra-zoom with a viewfinder, why not ?

the X is used as the previous bridge cameras were the X70 in 2009 and X90 in 2010 pre-dating the current use of X.

Tape5: What a great compact beautifully designed affordable light and capable piece of garbage.

Got my Kr and K5 and they work like a dream.
The K30 also looks great.
The nikon with wifi costs 350, the Pentax 280.
It's also about half the price of some other bridge cameras.

Your ban obviously didn't improve your manners.
Just pointing out the real reason you were banned.

Beestripe: How can it be like a 'smartphone' if it's not a phone? Just saying.

Hope you enjoyed your break.

Just back from shooting with my Nex 5N and EM5 actually.

That's because I'm not blinkered, not a hater, and will use the kit that works for the occasion and not blindly follow one brand and hate another.

tinternaut: I'm surprised. I expected Samsung to be first to market with this. Now, give us this in a CSC with built in 3G/GPS and All Share compatibility (oh, and Jelly Bean please so Google Now can point out nearby places of photographic interest).

Cue the hater.

I think one got banned for using vulgar language towards other posters.

Boerseuntjie: Will this shut up the Sony does not have any good lens selection crowd?
No, but it's a good start

@What do I know,

Rather, you have attacked me.

Writing lies saying that I hope Sony fail.

For which you still have not supplied any info. Only your words or in this case lies.

No, I am not Sam Carriere. But I notice that even though that poster claimed that he wanted Sony to fail in a post 5 days ago you didn't reply to that.

Instead you continued to attack me with backing up your accusations.

BTW VAIN not VEIN.

YOU were the one who attacked me in your fist post. Accusing me of wanting Sony to fail.

Yes. it shows who I am. Someone who will not back down when attacked and accused of something that he is completely innocent of.

I'm sure this will be your last post as you cannot justify anything that you have accused me of.

Instead you accuse me of being another poster. Untrue and without any proof to the contrary.

As previously mentioned YOU were the one to attack me, I have merely defended myself in the face of your lies.

I now wonder if you will provide the information I've asked for regarding my hateful comments about Sony,
return to making false claims about me,
or as you so charmingly put it, 'turn the other cheek'.

@What do I know,
I'm not insinuating anything.
Simply making an observation.
Another would be that of 5 posts you have made since joining FIVE days ago TWO have been aimed at me and seem to have been written to provoke.
In the FIVE days since joining you have ACCUSED me a making comments against Sony wishing their failure.
Which is an outright LIE.
That sounds like an attack on me.
When I pointed out that in fact I am the owner of a SONY NEX 5n camera you now reply calling me a bully.
I am sure the original poster who went very quiet five days ago must feel very happy that a new subscriber who joined only five days ago is such a vociferous defender of his views.
Your tone is very similar to the old poster and I'm sure you'll get on like a house on fire when he decides to restart making comments.
Please answer my original question and point out my hateful comments.
Please let me know this information so as to establish YOUR credibilty instead of calling into question mine.

@ EinsteinsGhost,
Wow!
Just saw some of your old posts.
Thinking about taking back my apology.
You're a little hypocritical if you ask me.
Some of your classic 'antsy' post below,

'But then, I don't expect anything better from "follow the crowd" types.'

'And you do parrot a lot like a sales rep. It must help to be able to do only one thing at a time. More... and your incoherence shows up.'

'Well, reading has never guaranteed an understanding of what one reads.'

'And when it comes to "follow the crowd" folks like you, that is pretty much a guarantee.'

'I can see why you've an issue with me pointing at your stupidity.'

Personal, nah!

Just noticed that you joined this site the day after this little situation occurred and after I requested his removal from this site for consistently using disgusting and insulting language in his posts and that the original poster hasn't been heard of since then.
