IchabodCrane, FTR other forums would forbid things like:

Bashing: Deliberately and repeatedly bashing the same brand, product orcompany. If you have a complaint or comment to make, make it once and make sure you have facts to support it.
and for good reason! But, this is the PentaxIsDoomedForums.com.

Would you rather have people who enjoy using Pentax leave, in order not to disturb the professional complainers?

Here we go!
I fixed the "under engineering" image.
What was RICOH (or whomever) thinking when they came up with "UNDER ENGINEERING" for those placards?

I guess they prefer under-engineering than over-engineering (meaning they still have a lot more to do...)

On a positive note: this poll was spot-on.

If that's the VoiceOfReason, I prefer not to hear the shout of madness!

Does that also mean a bunch Pentaxian's are leaving the brand? well then would it be better to wait when everyone is dumping their existing camera that Ricoh is forced to lower the price of new k-3? no?

I wonder what the Large Diameter Zoom is going to look like. I mean, how large? Like a frisbee? Or a Sigma?

I think asking people to get out of here is something we should leave to Adam.

Not exactly. The original post instructed voters to "Vote in the poll above to tell us what you think will be announced at the show." So far, there have been no announcements at all.

Nobody is asking people to leave, but to make their life better - and ours - by going with a brand they won't hate.
The alternative is to make this place Hell.

That was a punchline of the Photokina. Don't know who wrote that officially, but it delivers right on money.

Ricoh offers rather pale products this Photokina if we compare with Samsung, Canon, Panasonic, Nikon.

Future Zooms? Pentax could make HQ zooms many years ago, but not now. Pentax could make FIXED lenses.
But Fuji makes now fixed lenses which could made by Pentax.

No really new DSLR, no any fast and interesting lens, no HQ compacts.
Maybe someday...This Photokina indicates that Ricoh is in some crisis in terms of ideas.

have a look at announcement from other brand...it's really STRONG moves. Ricoh is pale.
Let me check what Pentax has in primes:

DA14 f/2.8 DA15 f/4, DA21 f/3.2, FA31 f/1.8, DA35 f/2.4, DA35 f/2.8, FA35 f/2, DA40 f/2, FA43 f/1.9, DFA50 f/2.8, FA50 f/1.4, FA50 f/1.7, DA50 f/1.8, DA*55 f/1.4, DA70 f/2.4, FA77 f/1.8, DFA100 f/2.8, DA*200 f/2.8, DA*300 f/4, DA560 f/5.6

Let me check what Pentax has in zooms:
DA10-17 f/3.5-4.5, DA12-24 f/4, DA16-45 f/4, DA16-50 f/2.8, DA17-70 f/4, DA18-55 f/3.5-5.6, DA20-40 f/2.8-4, DA50-135 f/2.8, DA50-200, DA55-300 f/3.5-5.8, DA60-250 f/4

And there also the TC 1.4

Let's check Fuji primes:
14mm f/2.8, 18mm f/2, 23mm f/1.4, 27mm f/2.8, 35mm f/1.4, 56mm f/1.2, 60mm f/2.4
And Fuji zoom: 18-55 f/2.8-4, 18-135 f/3.5-5.6, 55-200 f/3.5-4.8

Can you understand why Fuji has a big lens problem while Pentax has almost anything needed? They could continue just put HD coatings to all the lines and maybe create one DA24 f/2 as their only activity in lenses for the next 5 years that would still have a far better and more diverse lens offering than Fuji !

DSLR ? Again 645Z, K-S1.

Absolutely true. To all complainers: The Pentax system is still very complete. With K-3, K-5IIs, K-S1, K-50, K-500, flashes and a wide range of lenses you can do almost anything you want. If you have a small budget or 8 grand to spend.
