missing older tests

Popphoto's rather large online archive of older Pentax lens tests going back to about 1998-1999 has abruptly disappeared. To what degree this has affected the other brands, I don't know... but I think it is across the board.

Pdf files of SQF is largely missing from many tests now, especially the older dates.

As of now I still cannot start a thread over at pp forums to let the editors know this, as log in has shut me out.

Upbeat review of the K-x

I've no idea of infosync, but their review of the K-x is remarkably upbeat.

- The Great White Storm Trooper is back! Read our full Pentax K-x review, complete with videos and images.

"The entry-level DSLR market is flooded with hype, but the 12.4-megapixel Pentax K-x blasts all of the marketing shenanigans away with an overall awesome performance. Like the Pentax K2000 and Pentax K-7, the little and big siblings to the new K-x, superb image quality resided at the core of the camera's existence, whether we shot in JPEG, RAW, or 720p HD video. There's something magical about Pentax's APS-C CMOS sensor that brings an untouchable aesthetic to the world of digital imaging, and the Pentax K-x gave the Nikon D5000, Olympus E-620, and Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 respective runs for their money. Check out our hands-on video."

According to this article by Mr. Bernardini

What is a Dingus?

Hint: no, it is not a non-barking ozzie-made adapter.
