Stop the self-humiliating FF failure before it has actually materialized

My message to Pentax: Stop the self-humiliating FF failure before it has actually materialized!

Two wrongs don't make one right.Think rationally for a second!

Pentax will loose all credibility and become a laughing stock for coming up in 2016 with an already outdated DSLR, awkwardly designed, low-performing and high-priced, "mee-too" camera which will completely miss the point.

Drop the K1 model and all this FF nonsense and create something distinctive, remarkable and daring. Ricoh is a company capable of making a difference. Fire the managers who gave that stupid idea now and hire people that do their job with a passion! Make another hit like the Ricoh GR or the superb old-timer Pentax Z1 which is my Pentax FF camera of choice.

You do know this camera is likely already in early production lines, right?

That will be next, with any luck. But the K-1 must come first.

I feel oppressed and humiliated just reading the original post. Poor Pentax!!!! Poor ME!!!



There is only one solution...I must buy a Canon...any Canon. Even a cheap P&S will do. Only then will I have an sense of personal legitimacy.

OTOH...perhaps I can find a way to simply bit bucket this thread followed by a swift BorisCleto™ of the OP!

Ahhh...the sweet sweet sensation of relief!!!

152 posts and member since 2010. Odd. Check for a discarded shell of a Canon or Nikon aka Invasion of the Body Snatchers.
