You're not the only one, but this forum is the wrong place to say so. Everything's fine and dandy in Pentax-land, as the usual suspects have already told you.

Yes, it is the wrong forum. This is the Pentax Forum. I want a DSLR, because DSLR's do things that MILCs can't do. Things that matter to me. I did a great deal of research and decided on Pentax as the ideal choice. Nothing in the past seven years has made me think I made a mistake.

If I couldn't shoot Pentax for some reason, I'd buy a Canon or Nikon DSLR. If I wanted a Fuji or some other MILC, I'd buy one, and post about it in that forum. MILC needs to come a long way to catch up with DSLR's, in sales and performance. If MILC's ever do catch up to DSLR's, I'm sure Pentax will be there.

Ok, so the Pentax forum is the wrong forum to discuss whether Pentax may be lagging behind the competition and could maybe take note of some of the innovations others are introducing.

Excuse me, but that's an hilarious conception of what forums are for. Are we only supposed to discuss the topics pre-approved by the "Pentax defense force" (you guys know who you are)?

Ok, then.

Unfortunately, the lesson I have learned on this Pentax forum is that you are correct about the "Pentax defense force". I don't know how many ad naseum comparisons there have been with Pentax vs Canon vs Nikon vs Full-frame I have seen and read on this forum. Apparently, those discussions are pre-approved. Bring up a subject about a new camera that has much in common with Pentax but is mirror-less and all hell breaks. In reality, if some people on this forum really read what I posted they would see I made no reference to the XT-1 being mirrorless. I was not comparing mirrorless vs DSLR.  I was talking about other innovations in a camera that may make many camera buyers take notice. To say that I am very dismayed with the reactions of some people on this forum is an understatement. This forum is supposed to be a place to talk all things Pentax without responding with a chip on one's shoulders. It may be time for me to move on and find a place that wants to talk cameras intelligently and not emotionally. I am sorry I ever posted my thoughts on this forum. I won't make that mistake again.
