Any guesses as to who has created a new account just to complain about a joke?

In my mind the initial post read

"I was totally taken in and now feel a bit stupid, so I want to get annoyed at someone, but I also know that to do so is irrational, so I will let off steam under a different identity"

is that just me?

need and want are 2 different things lol.
NEED is an imperative of biology.
WANT is a product of marketing.

I NEED food, clothes, shelter, etc. Photography is just an addiction.
I don't NEED another 28mm lens. I have about 15 pretty good ones.
I WANT a SuperTak 28/3.5 because I've sold myself on having Taks.

FF is another matter. I have plenty of FF and MF cams. Sure, they take film. Film can be scanned. Before I bought my K20D, I solicited advice for the best possible system. Some such advice: Get a Bronica 645 system and a top-notch film scanner. Turnaround is a bit slower than a digicam but the resolution and tone qualities (and price!) can't be beat. Well. I do shoot some film in 6x6 and 6x9 cams, but I still haven't bought that scanner. One of these days... maybe...

I NEED a brain transplant. The old one is going mushy, but at least I don't watch TV.

Man, I already sold all my DA lenses in preparation for the full frame. I sold them at half price and bought overpriced takumars. What do I do now? I almost buy one K3 at craiglist.

No! Don't buy it yet. There's going to be a $500.00 rebate on them next month.

Congratulations. I am a English-as-as-second-language speaker and learned the correct way of the subjunctive mode. I am glad someone is using it. Most people I hear on the radio and on TV always say: "... if it was me..." Where are we going?

I any case, I was taken completerly that I started taking photos of my DA lenses to sell them and be ready for the ff. I almost even buy one on Craiglist (it is no longer there. I think it never was, buy my mind saw it there... used one! )

Since that's his one and only post since joining 3 years ago, I wouldn't make too many plans for the gear while waiting for a reply.

I was frustrated but then just laughed it out when I realized that this "FF K-3 announcement" was an April Fools joke.
Yeah, it's funny, but then this PentaxForums was a source of credible information for Pentax users and others for a long time, and that breaks the credibility of this forum for a lot of members and visitors.
Many Pentaxians are dreaming for a FF, and I for one too, and that prank here in this forums is frustrating. Yeah, I understand that for others don't really need a FF and are happy with APS-Cs, but still many are in need for FF and others just wanted it.
