Every time a new camera of any brand doesn't get an immediate full glowing review the carping starts. I read the same sort of rubbish about DPR bias in lots of forums.

I suspect it just 'got' to them, but the DPR staff should deal with this kind of thing as part of the general community banter.

Nope, this is more than just banter. Pentax fans have become known across the entire site for spamming other comment threads and forums with griping about perceived slights that no one else cares about. People have openly mocked Pentax fans for this.

It's not just DPR that's fed up with that. Other users actually are too.

This is just embarrassing and should stop immediately. It's just making the entire Pentax community here look like a bunch of crazies.


Wouldn't the simplest be just to publish the review?

Given they promised high priority in early Jan?

The rampant OT remarks in comments from all forum members I think maybe your applying your angst to 'everyone' that isn't there how would they know I rarley read comments so don't and suspect nobody knows or cares who the 'Pentax fans' are.

I couldn't care either way the only thing that erks me is saying one thing and doing another, Its nonprofessional and leads to miss management of the customers expectations.

Well said.  DPR are the ones who can make this question go away but they haven't.
