What if.. we all stepped away from the keyboard BEFORE making more 'What If' threads and other various pseudo-important discussions, wasting precious life arguing over things neither here nor there? What if we just waited to see what happens in a few months and decide what is best for us individually when that time comes, knowing it is no one's business but our own? What if indeed.

What if they canceled the whole project due to "market changes"?
Possible, but I think if they do this ^ it's step one in the process of doing that v .

What if they closed Pentax completely?
Possible.

What if they bought Nikon?
That's even possible I guess, but I doubt Ricoh's plans involve that big of an expansion into consumer imaging.

Sounds like you're advocating shutting down the entire internet because it 'wastes precious life'

This is what internet forums are about, in part. "I don't like the discussion, close the thread" doesn't do an open forum any favors IMO.

Precisely!

Just to clarify: Nowhere in the pentaxforums.com rules is there anything about members being required to read all threads or posts.
It seems that not reading and responding to posts/threads we aren't interested in would, in itself, save some precious life (time); wouldn't it?

Canikon is famous for releasing flawed betas like the T4 and the D600. I appreciate that:

a) The rarity of Pentax releasing something that is recalled or is in firmware update version 9.9.
b) The name on the front of the camera is not Ricoh.
c) Time waits for no one. There are images to be shot as I post this. Decisions are made every moment of our lives.
d) Did you see the Star Wars: Episode 7? Did it make any sense? Did that stop anyone from seeing it? To me the K1 is Ricoh's gesture that they are willing to invest in the future of Pentax, and that future includes pros and enthusiasts. George was burned out, so he sold out to Walt's Disney, but unlike that analogy, Ricoh has seemed to understand the kwan* of Pentaxians.

Not at all. As the good Mr. Carson has stated, there is nothing in the official pentaxforums adventurers rulebook(tm) that says we must read or comment on any or all threads stated. However, I figured the past 6+ years of the same retread discussion (that arrives weekly) about what Ricoh should do [with their K mount FF system] would be a bit stale by now... But if you're keen on restating and re-listening to the same replays, be my guest.

I mean, really, do a search and I suspect you'll find an active one going back at least 6 years... if not further. I think many of us are just wanting to see something fresh on the forums besides the same rehashed what if discussions (and get some real news).. because in these quiet moments that is all that becomes of them. And probably why the K-3 satire thread is so active!

Cool. I could finish saving for it and wouldn't have to use my credit card.

We will help those who are waiting for this camera. We will all ask Pentax why it will be late.
Now, what if it comes this January?
