Yes, you are absolutely correct! Pentax fans will buy this camera regardless how negative (potentially) such a review would sound, because there is no other Pentax body available.

First, there are other Pentax bodies available.: the K-1 and K-70, and some sellers still have KPs in stock. And you always say things so negatively. How about because it's the finest APSC body they've ever made, and a worthy upgrade?

And, of course the notion of "regardless how negative (potentially) such a review would sound" has to be qualified by DPR's relative lack of general credibility on the brand.

Non Pentax fans will never buy any Pentax body regardless how positive (potentially) such a review would sound, because they have other available bodies/lenses. So, why DPReview should bother?

The sunk cost of lenses is pretty much the case with any gear exchange. I'd have to restock if I changed from Pentax; my wife would have to restock if she changed from Sony. The issues are exactly the same.
