No thanks.
You may want to say that to Pentax employees fired due to poor sales. I am sure they could appreciate your wisdom at full value!

More like Sake in that context!
Actually whiskey is plenty popular there. Not sure about vicodin, but it couldn't hurt.

So to speak...

Hi guys. We all have our own opinions and that is perfectly fine to express here.

Two members have been quite concerned about some inflammatory remarks in this long thread.

Let's take some anti-inflammatory to dampen down the inflammatory tone towards various forum members in the thread please.

Send it on to them if you like. Or come up with another totally irrelevant comment.

I think about everything I write. In this case I used hyperbole.

You used a masked insult. Perhaps it is you who should reconsider?

You, mighty "theorist" probably need to come up with another totally disparaging comment about some folks that work hard for a living making the nice Pentax stuff some of us buy. Your superiority complex about people you don't know speaks volumes about yourself.

Keep "theorizing"!

Of course I said none of this. I am the one defending the rights of someone to write what they want on their own personal blog. But the fact you twist this inside out and pose such an obvious straw man position speaks volumes about your insecurities.

I have said nothing about anyone who makes Pentax gear. In fact I am defending a Pentax employee, Bunnell, against the attacks of people like yourself.

(Though I might indeed have a superiority complex developing regarding you. It might be best to stop feeding it.)

Is it really so annoying that someone might like to use a non-Pentax camera? Anyone would think you were upset about something serious.

Some of you guys are very bad at reading between the lines...

And as said above, this type of thing just endears me more to the company. Pentax is "different." I would expect an equivalent exec for Canikon to mindlessly shill his/her own products. The fact that Mr. Bunnell has enough character and is secure enough in his feeling about Pentax products that he can admire other brands is highly admirable to me. Obviously he does not have a persecution complex about Pentax, and does not feel threatened by other good products. But rather he can appreciate them, learn from them, and perhaps use them as leverage (reading between the lines).

I'd rather have a human with a brain and an aesthetic and an opinion as head of Pentax USA rather than some "yes man" marketing bot. But as always, ymmv.
Very well said!

He can use whatever he wants, but being in such position he is not supposed to put this in his public blog no matter how many people read it.
your numbers proved absolutely nothing about Leica being a threat to Pentax. they never have, they likely never will. you are talking one specific camera, a rebranded Panasonic. is Panasonic a threat to Pentax? Panasonic is a threat to everyone in the world of P&S cameras and low end DSLR's. but Leica as a brand has never been a threat to Pentax since the companies first camera in 1952. you either 1: missunderstood my question or 2: ignored what I was really asking to throw numbers in my face like you have before.
