I'm still trying to overcome the trauma of the last FF K-3 joke of... I don't remember how many years ago.

OTOH... With Pentax it doesn't have to be the first of April to fool people with fake FF rumors.

It must be a double bluff - there is no rumour because it really is coming! (OMG! What have I said? We will be flooded with third hand reports of a half-finished sentence that someone heard some alleged Ricoh rep say in a darkened alley as he tapped the side of his nose.)

I'm with Clavius on this one, thanks to that horrible ruse, all future ruses are forever ineffective. It's done irreparable damage, akin to PTSD. I feel so violated. It's taken away my childlike ability to fall for pranks... I need to get back in touch with my inner gullible buffoon.

I told my GF I was selling all my gear and switching to Nikon, which would have left her with just her k30 and no lenses (since she has my back-up kit)

I now have to buy her dinner at red lobster the rest of the month to make up for it. She did NOT find it amusing.

I already received my LX-d pre-order, delivered today, April 1.

However, I also just got my taxes back from the CPA and I can't afford to keep it - I'll sell to the first one who PM's, at 10% discount - $2,689. Only 267 clicks, PP, USPS Insured Delivery ConUS included.
