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".

Apparently, the best justification for anything is to attempt ridicule those who thinks otherwise, portraying them as fanatics, sometimes "religious" zealots and completely ignoring their points.

It can also prevent you from supporting your claims with valid arguments. The only innovation from what you mentioned in the original post - and it's nothing new - is the viewfinder, by the way. Claims like Pentax losing sales to Fuji were never supported.

The tilting screen is as old as it gets (true, the 645D 2014 will be the first Pentax DSLR to have one), and following Pentax with few WR products is not innovation. What exactly should Pentax take notice of? I'd rather say you wanted us to take notice of the new Fuji.

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.

What an interesting... emotional reaction
