We just have launched ...

Have received a pentaxforums e-mail:

"We just have launched a new forum where Canon camera users..."

Are you preparing yourself for the time when Pentax becomes obsolete ?

Not exactly a news flash.
People here have been talking about CanonForums for over three years now
canonforums.com - PentaxForums.com
and Pentax's position was arguably much more unstable back then.

So, are you going to enter the drawing for an SL-1??
{I'm not - I've had two Canon cameras die since that thread I referenced above was started; I here for a good reason}

Last I heard, Cannon had a 50% drop in camera sales. And were supposed to jump ship for Cannon. Not me, even if Pentax does go belly up, I got too much invested in the Pentax gear. As long as my K3 holds out, or I can get a replacement, I am sticking with it. And even if I had to replace my gear, I would not go to Canon. I would probably go to Sony instead.

No, I am not. I have this fear of bad luck and find myself winning this Canon Camera.

Cheers

I am not sure either.

T'was a tongue in cheek comment but they are not always identifiable with the written word.

I like the format and layout of Pentax Forums, and it's always interesting to dip one's toes in another pond. Not with the intent of moving - I am perfectly happy with my current system - but it's nice to know from time to time a little more about what other photographers are using/used to shoot.

If you were going to do Minolta Forums, where would you put the cutoff? When Konica's name joined Minolta on the front of the cameras? Or with the last camera to bear the Minolta name at all? (Otherwise it would very quickly become Sony Forums.)

What's wrong with a forum about copiers and printers? An awful lot of Canon copiers and printers out there.
