He can be quite polarized, but I don't really think of him as a Pentax hater. Just a disgruntled Pentax user.

But I do appreciate that he sometimes has news that I haven't seen on this forum.
They only thing is Rice Low went several years ~5 without actually having owned a lot of the bodies and lenses he was reviewing. In fact he would handle them for 5 minutes at a dealer or from a friend in then wax eloquent like he is some kind of authority on them. You can find any more Negative person towards the Pentax brand than Rice Low. It wouldn't surprise me if he is a Canon employee.

He is very predictable. We saw him go through the same cycles here at the pentax forum (before he was excommunicated for repeatedly breaking the forum rules): first he gets himself so steamed up on a product when it is announced, then he likes it quite a lot, then he doesn't like it, then he hates it, and then he conclude Pentax is doomed. Now, he ain't the only one going through these cycles, but he certainly was one of the worst cases. His blog? Haven't visited it for ages.
I agree. I haven't been to his blog in ages either and decided that by doing so I was just feeding his brand of narcissism.

Rice High got into trouble on this forum for his self-promotion. He flogged his blog no end here. It wasn't actually his opinions that got him into trouble. In the end, he just left (I don't think he is actually banned, but I could be wrong).

Rice Low is a legend in his own mind.
I have to give credit where credit is due, though. He is one of the most adept trolls I've ever seen.

If so, someone should provide this gentleman's club guidelines to newly joined members, as I found Rice High through google and correlated him to some mentions here

Does he actually own a K-01 or sued a comp unit for a period of time?

Played a "panda" unit at a shop briefly, found the following:-

Okay, nevertheless, I think I still will not buy the K-01, as it is meaningless to add it in my Pentax lineup,

It wasn't a bad review, and he does make a point. I am not getting the K-01 myself because I want to get the k-5.

That wasn't my point. He went for years without upgrading from a k100d and wrote tons of that stuff and also collected every negative thing on the internet and his site served as a repository. Maybe I should go down to the Best Buy and fondle some Canikon for 20 minutes and write some reviews.
