I get a storm of negativity now "Where is the big surprise you promised?", "What, no class leading camera??", "This is no good!!!" etc...

I didnt promise anything big..I said there might be a little surprise..the DA* UWA was that little surprise...Im already pushing limits on my NDA, but some people react with anger towards me.

On the pentaxians facebook group, someone even called me a joke and that Ricoh should get rid of me as ambassador.....

Soooo...not sure anymore, why I even bother using so much of my freetime to be available for pentaxusers....My contract is just on showing new and potensial users what Pentax now can do...bah
kenspo, I know lots of us (myself included) appreciate you being here on the forum. Keeping the excitement up. Clamoring for... huge lenses that are over corrected (I kid) that people want to use and make great photos.

You could be out there taking pictures of the moose and the punk rockers of Norway but you're here keeping things interesting and more fun. Don't let them get you down.

Remember JCPentax?
"Benevolent" people made sure he would leave and never come back. Now they're trying the same with Kenspo.
It's not sad; it's sick.
It has crossed my mind too..More then twice

I appreciated your posts in this thread... and the 11-18mm is good news indeed!
As other said, pay no heed to the negativity.
Last pic is a stunner, BTW.

Kenspo, don't give in to the negativity. We value your input and appreciate the restrictions under which you are allowed to post.

If you went to the University of Georgia we would consider you a DGD (damn good dawg). Thanks for all your hard work.

I think that most days.. and delete most posts before I finish them... most topics end in brand-fans bullying and bashing those they perceive not falling in line and/or pointed debates... it gets unfriendly fast.


But that isn't a PF issue, it is common online.. western society has largely forgotten how to agree to disagree and be civil.




Thanks for the info when and where you can provide them.

Well said. And it is not just western society, I think it is more of a global issue. People in the internet era don't feel we need to be civil when posting on line...

Pentax users are used to be long time Pentax fan and are friendly to each other. Maybe it is a good sign that more new users are joining us?
