Hassy has been doing really well since they pretty much got taken over by Fuji.....


Anyway, this is about the 20th thread, every time it's the same thing. Someone figures out some way to make their camera have a problem, and all of a sudden the sky is falling, Pentax is shooting themselves in the foot, their QC sucks, moan, moan moan.
And I snapped.

Having said that, I still stand behind what I posted. I'm also fortunate enough to have a local and very good camera store. Most people aren't. Your situation with having several close by is the exception, not the rule.

It's no secret that Hoya is squeezing Pentax for everything they can, if there are QC issues over and above what would be considered normal, the best thing people can do is quietly send their cameras back for warranty repairs or exchange.
This will make Hoya stand up and pay attention a lot faster than the continuous barrage of threads we've seen over the past few weeks.

fair enough mate ...you do sound like someone that has had a final straw that broke the camels back...... I understand your point...I just arked up cause you went straight for the knee capping..lol..i call it quits on this one ole son..all the best too ya

Wheatfield... I too get sick of opening threads to read the same story or a new complaint.

It would be great if a tag and label could be placed against a new thread when created.

Complaint.
Praise
Query
Help
etc


one could be more particular with what thread is chosen to be opened


cheers

Not a bad thought, potentially to Adam?

@Nulla - I'm not saying it's a bad idea, but I think it is a little obvious in the thread title already (and potentially more work for Adam).

I think there is some value in discussing a problem, especially when you have been disappointed in what is for most of us, a major financial purchase. Sometimes this goes too far though...."the sky is falling" type of threads don't help anyone.

Also, we have IMHO had some individuals that try to raise themselves by pointing fault at others or Pentax. I don't think this is the case on this thread, and I appreciate some of the more technical articles that we have had that are objective. It is however something to keep in mind when reading these type of posts. If there is an issue, that is fine, but objectivity from the OP is key.

Like yourself I too am here on the forum.

What I was suggesting is an available option for VBulletin Forums... not sure what this system runs under.

When making a post on VBulletin with the option enabled you can set and name tags.,, this is done by the original thread poster

here below is a snap from an Aussie Rules Site with the tags in different colours




enough of the forum this evening... off to the city for some skyline shots
