as for gambling is evil

gambling = risk

life = risk

life = gambling

ergo, life is evil
I satisfy my urge to gamble by buying stuff on E-bay

Perhaps there would be more interest in a competition for donated prizes?

ideally i would want a pool of 30 people or more, with a large spread, but many picking similar weeks.

cant really cut a prize 3-5 ways.

I'm thinking about it, can you clarify, do you want the money up front?
If so, how about instead of paying the money to you, the people who want in, pay the money as a donation to PF. When the announcement is made, Adam can pay the winner but I would also suggest that PF keeps 10% to go towards paying for this website.

I don't have money to bet, but I'll give you my predictions. Maybe this will punt the thread in a different direction.

6.5fps RAW shooting, 12 frame buffer
22 point AF with SAFOX IV engine for better low-light performance

K30D:

14.6Mp Samsung CMOS sensor
6.5fps RAW shooting, 12 frame buffer
22 point AF as above
1/250 flash sync speed

K300D:

10.1 Samsung CMOS sensor
3.5fps RAW shooting, 6 frame buffer
11 point AF with new engine, as above

Yes, we should be betting on:
  • The year the 60-250mm will come out
  • The year Pentax will release a FF camera.
  • The year Pentax will release a MF camera.
  • The year Pentax will go under.
  • The year Samsung will buy Pentax.
  • The year Pentax claims the number 3 spot.
  • The year ...

why is this wrong?

why is this stupid?

i hate lurkers that no one knows, jump into a thread, say something nonsensical then run away.

You have never been in a hockey pool? Never bet your friend 5 bucks that you can get that chick's number?


For everyone else, i will request a moderator to close this thread, i wanted to have a little fun, but its obvious that with the exception of like 3 people the rest of you have no desire to back up your theories.

this new years will probably be just like it was last year, with people making such strong claims about upcoming product, to the point where violent threads erupt. Seems no one can just sit still and wait for the company to announce their new lineup.

but it seems no one has the rocks to "put their money where your mouth is" (with the exception of the few, you know who you are), and its a shame, really.
