He's joined a Nikon owners forum and told them he's not buying the D7200
Does it have "Mitsubishi Group" on the back?

[..] "ricoh on the back of the screen turns me off.[..] I have had quite a few people turn me down because I shoot with pentax [..]
So true mate, and getting put down for using Non-NiCan equipment really sucks !

But some time ago I found a clever solution. I just place a Ferrari-Banner over all Pentax-Banners !
All people are absolutly stunned when they see my camera and keep asking me about it.
I always tell them that it costs a ton of money, and best part is, that after I show them my photos they are convinced that it must be Ferrari.

Huh? I thought it was just a reaction to being shown a camera that says "Pentax" on the front, and "Ricoh" on the back... (and "DC IN" and "HDMI" and "Mic" on one side, with just "SDXC" on the other). Damn cats!

Personally I find it extremely funny and pleasant in the same time that Ricoh bought Pentax... because Ricoh and Pentax have been my favorite cameras always - have a decent collection from both.

So for me, having Ricoh and Pentax name on the same camera is like uniting two of my best friends into one .
Pentax name will be lost and it will be kept as a line-up camera name. Is normal and it WILL come to that. Don't get too attached to the name... appreciate the product and its spirit...

So because of the reasons above, personally I don't care about the name as much as I care about carrying the spirit of Pentax and that beautiful (to me) K-mount .

K-3 is a great start and personally I will continue to buy Ricoh's Pentax line-up cameras till the end of time (or until they screw up big time ).
However my next upgrade will only be an FF so I am patiently waiting for it. Why only an FF!? Just, because.

My only concern with that image is... how in the world do you click on those icons behind that desk-clock!?

I have this unstoppable urge to drive my ass over there, get on your computer and move it to the right of the screen where there is nothing.
Most annoying thing ever...

LOL! I hadn't even noticed that PDCU4 evolved into RDCU5.
