In fact, I think that it would be better for Pentax, and to a
degree we users, to be down the order of camera manufacturers.

Agreed.

If
we want to have the same cameras as C*non and N*kon then yes,
Pentax can go down the path of competing in the C*non and
N*kon territory, but I personally don't want that.

Of course not, If you'd wanted that, you'd have bought a C*non or a
N*ikon

Exactly!!

I would like Pentax to be a slightly bigger company so as we can
obtain lenses and other of their products more easily, but NOT at
the expense of reduced lens image quality and shoddy build quality.
Pentax were built on reputation for these qualities and I don't
want them compromised just so they can become just another big
camera company.

If clicks on this site are any measurement, Pentax is on the way
up. It's comfortably at the #7 spot (up from #10 in december), and
the K100D is the first Pentax to make the top twenty in the camera
list, as far as I know...

Good times,
