The New Coloured Bodies Worry Me.

I really can't believe this......

Everyone is going ape over these new 'cool' coloured coded bodies and seem to have forgotten about issues like SDM failure etc.

Ok good on Pentax for trying something different to boost its profile and get more sales but at what expense?

Does this mean that if this is a BIG success they will start to concentrate more on trying to be 'COOL' rather then the serious photographer?

Will we start to see Pentax apps on the iphone just to stay cool and abandon the r&d that we'd all like Pentax to concentrate on?

After all (and I don't blame them) business is about chasing the $$$ and if one type of marketing turns out to be more successful then the other well the other may just get canned specially if it is too difficult to compete with the Canon and Nikons of this world.

Pentax is a great unique brand but could this be the turning point from unique to cool?
I really hope not but I do feel there is cause for concern.

Does anyone else share these sentiments?
