That's quite a statement! Are those who do not have pride in a name brand stupid? Do you want to offer any reasons why this would be a good thing for consumers or will this remain just an unqualified marketing yell? Is Joe Consumer getting anything out of this loyalty-trip or is the manufacturer (any one of them) capitalizing on herd behaviour? In the supermarket around the corner I get reduction stamps, Dixons offers airmiles, Shell and BP have points for towels and toys. I know I am actually paying for those "presents" myself but that is beside the point. What does Canon/Nikon/Pentax brand loyalty get me? A free sunshade, access to specially made products, anything?

Oh, you are probably right with that, but that is not the problem. I KNOW a marketeer can read me by looking at my consumption footprint. Instead of that same marketeer capitalizing on a perceived and inflated brand loyalty, I would like him to use his insight to get his company to produce stuff that I actually want - not make me want stuff that his company actually produces. There IS a difference there, believe it or not.
yes you
Whatever dude. You are way negative and paranoid.
I said do not be stupid about pride in a name brand.
It drives our economy improves products. You wave a name brand flag for something.
This is just the old down with establishment song. Are you a Californian vegetarian?

I think its important to drive a big wedge between US and THEM, them being the Canon/Nikon people with their ugly plastic cameras and cheap good lenses. I fart in your general direction!

I know it's an old post

For me, being a Pentaxian means learning to use Manual. Not because I'd like to, rather because I'm forced by inaccurate AF, light- and flash metering. Dealing with all those and sticking with Pentax after all means being a Pentaxian for me.
