Would it be in poor taste to point out that Ken Rockwell is a freaking retard?
Yes it would be. The "R" word is highly offensive to a group of people who struggle every day with their disability, not least of which is people casually using it as the pejorative. It's also highly offensive to members of their families. Got it?

Just to reiterate, there is nothing wrong with not liking the K-1. But at least have some real reasons for doing so. The fact that it is late to the game or that Pentax's lenses aren't very good are not good reasons at all. This is just an editorial piece -- based on no usage of gear -- entirely focused on disparaging Pentaxians.

I don't really care about what Rockwell thinks and I don't believe anyone who knows anything buys gear based on his recommendations (at least I hope not), but he is very annoying with regard to his attitude.

Twelve pages on Ken Rockwell? Honest to god, you guys are losing it.

I dismiss Ken Rockwell out of hand.
And yet, somehow, you helped us get to page 13...

It's well know that Ken is an idiot. He raves about "Japanese quality" for Canon & Nikon lenses yet stated that the Zeiss Contax lenses made in Japan are crap. Ditto for Olympus optics as well. Just ignore him.

He's a big fan of the 'K-mount', as he calls Kim Kardashian.

At one time, Rockwell's reviews were not bad, but he really has become wedded to the Canikon, mostly Nikon bodies he uses personally. His review of the K3II really jumped the shark in its recommendations. Everything about the camera worked great (except the lack of a flash) but he recommended against it largely because its controls do not operate the same way as Canon or Nikon. I feel the same way when I pick up any brand I don't normally use. Reviewers need to get past this or they are just saying they won't switch.

Yeah, he shoots JPG, in P mode, and cranks up the saturation.

Okay, a lot of people in the world do that, but you"d hope not somebody claiming to be a pundit.

How does one add a trademark? I think Digitalis may have come up with the theme of the next 12 months.
