.. what can be adequately explained with incompetence.

Considering Pentax's own lack of imagination and will to establish its presence anywhere, I sincerely doubt that DPR team has anything to do with absence of Pentax gear from the DPR GearShop.

That DPR wants to have a more licked up portral towards buying the gear, well, they have only made a better user interface to what people are already doing: after reading a review, people click to buy a certain piece of gear from some of photo retail shops.

This is the same thing, only made more prominent and comprehensible, but changes nothing re DPR's review editorial policy.
