OP was a drive by troll?
I wouldn't go that far . . . . . .

He did seem to feel quite strongly about something that really isn't such a big deal.

But it is keeping many of us from getting a K3.

I live in California, The holy land for American Micro breweries! ALWAYS good brew for this beer snob!

And on topic, I dont see why its a big deal for it to say Ricoh on it, its a good camera that I can put K lenses on, still at its heart is a pentax. I am happy.
Just remember a Ricoh XR500 (pretty basic SLR) was what got me into K-mount club. By the time for my MX I already had two other lenses (one was adaptall2 the other a fixed K-mount) so I was locked into the system - no Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Fuji, Minolta, Leica, Konica, or almost anything else in those days would fit the extra lenses I had - so here I am.

This post is TOTALLY not full of ANYTHING like that, RIGHT?

For sure.

For me it was the XR2S.

And the rest is history!

I still am not getting a K3.

Not enough resolution... I'll take a stab in the dark: got any Tuborg, Guiness or Weihenstephan wheat beer in there?

he started this thread hating on the K3 and is now MIA.
Yep, that is part of the allure of this thread. The OP is a little like DB Cooper...a legend of sorts whose destiny is linked with that of Tokyo and the future of cheese.
