I couldn't watch the guy. He thinks he's important and people that care about what he says, because it's him. I don't care about him, most people don't. He's a wanna be expert. That's the great thing about the internet. Anyone can have a blog.

And I can be completely happy shooting with 120 rangefinder camera. I could care less why a pentax is not good enough for him. (It's because he's a big sports photographer right? <cough BS cough >

Pentax has been around as long as the other two and it gets old how people these days treat it. I guess it's natural as generations go by, people see a company as how they have performed in the last 5 years.

I'm making myself a T-Shirt that says

"PENTAX - Dare to be different (and better)"
LOL, I'm cracking myself up. It would be even better if it said "Canikon for DUMMIES" on the back

Pretty much he is just taking some of the more reasoned posts from this forum and condensed them into a video.
If he had really wanted to lambaste Pentax over the stain issue, there are a number of people who post here (repeatedly ad nauseum) on the K5 problems who have given a lot of very negative material for him to have drawn on if he had chosen to use it.

I think you mean that as a euphemism for Truth? Do you read Polls Wheatfield? Do you do math?

It's so sad how negative this place has become.

Doesn't anyone like to have a little lighthearted witty banter anymore?

I think you need to learn to comprehend what people write rather than making up crap based on what you want to have read.

I think your on to something there. If I may make a small suggestion it would be to offer an optional back design where K5 owners can have their exact stain pattern printed on it. Every shirt would be different.Being a custom shirt you can obviously tack a premium price tag to it.
Something to think about....

I was reading about this but never had any desire to watch the video, this or the first. Can't understand why you people care about...As for the T-shirt, i trully believe some ppl have serious issues...that is sick, not funny. And if i were Pentax/Hoya or whoever owns it, i would not laugh. Looks like a company statement, not one of your own. You did not said "my Pentax k-5 camera is better than your whatever". My advice would be...speak for yourself. And what exactly are you saying.....K-5 owns Nikon's top consumer camera?

I'm trying to lighten the mood and get back to the original poster's topic, and maybe even have a little fun at the same time. It seems every single thread degenerates into complaints and negativity.

I think i've had enough of PF for awhile. I'm going to go take some pictures.

LOL... this guy is in fact very irritating (voice and face).

If he speaks for Pentax, I wouldn't want to buy Pentax! LOL

I guess this is how people make money from youtube (ads) nowadays.
