While I do believe Wendle was born with a set, I'm not so sure that he hasn't surgically removed them. (An operation which would have been performed by himself of course, as he is a trained surgical assistant...)
Ha ha, that's gotta be one of the worst DIY projects in history.

I think we may get away with it, he was probably getting confused with HowieB from the Fun Loving Criminals. They were big in Europe a few years ago especially Holland.

Just look at her profile and see some of her comments, esp. the ones she started. I don't know who she is but I preferred this thread to the Olympics.

I asked the same question back around page 2.

The answer to the first part of your question is, I think, that WendyB is a member of the forum who, in certain posts and private messages to members, has posed as someone who is (a) a pro photographer of the sort that jets to Paris to do photo shoots; and (b) who has an intimate connection of some unspecified sort inside Pentax International. However, nobody can corroborate either of these aspects of WendyB's identity. No photos, which is odd for a pro photographer, indeed, it's pretty odd for a serious amateur these days. Worth noting, by the way, that the presence of photos would prove very little. But the absence of photos is suspicious. WendyB has also described herself as a surgery nurse. A lot of us who make money with our cameras have second jobs, so it's not impossible that a surgery nurse is also jetting to Paris to do photo shoots. And for all you know, I might be Cartier-Bresson's illegitimate grandson.

The answer to the second part of your question (why should you care?) is simple: there is no reason you should care. I don't. If WendyB actually were a person who knew something about Pentax's plans for the future ... well, I still wouldn't care very much.

Basically, WendyB is just a little mystery the unraveling of which has been pursued with a bit more gusto than was perhaps strictly necessary. This thread has been a huge time waster for all concerned. (But it has had a few entertaining moments.)

P.S. I still don't care who he/she is.

Or maybe she is 'The Hooded Claw' from Penelope Pitstop, or maybe someone clawed her hood, I really don't know anymore

When K20D speculations were rife, this person wrote like "she" knew a few secrets, then replied to someone she could not reveal anymore because she just got a *severe* reprimand from Pentax for doing that.

The next day, yes the very next day, she started a brand new page-long thread giving out a dozen more hints. Obviously the severe reprimand just needed an overnight sleep to wear out

Wendle also said that his 18-250 didn't have any lens creep. Anyone who has an 18-250 would find that offensive (LOL)...
