Warning! Incoming information indicate that the hociR might tackle a bacon onslaught without much trouble.

Neil Bacon is Regional Sales Manager for Ricoh UK. And so is Dan Bacon!

It's all part of The Plot. Pentax is dooooomed!

Maybe the K-50 and Q7 replacements will have a mottled red/white body color option.

Re some of the above, the only really important thing is that quality and competitively specced K mount cameras are continued to be produced under a brand name that buyers easily recognise and is trusted and, just as importantly knows how to market them. We like PENTAX now, even allowing for its apalling marketing in the past. RICOH may be better longer term bet (I do not know) but firstly they will have make a better Bridge camera for the market as the reviews for the latest offering are so far muted and secondly they will have to resolve the mirror flutter issue in the K3, as well as giving more options on the choice of which card slot to use.
Alright!

Who left the door open anyway?

I dunno, but I will get the swatter!

I just though of another reason not to get a K-3...

If you don't have a crazy mirror, you will stay awake nights wondering why...

There are chemicals for that. My doctor could sign you up for some. You need his number?


BTW: no sandshoes hanging on the powerline.

So a crazy mirror is like a neighbors car alarm at 3am?

I think Pentax should hire Kevin Bacon! Maybe they can redeem themselves after that whole hociR debacle! Better yet, the K-3 girls!!

I shall be returning my K-3 for a full refund. They must have sold me a fake.

I've had a similar experience with a Land Rover, not the lack of a flapping mirror though, but that it never breaks down as they are meant to do all the time. I have not succeeded in getting a refund or even a genuine replacement for that either though.

Do you eat that with a knife and fork?

Usually it is just a Bacon cheeseburger. When the menu spells it out 'with ____' instead, it usually means two things -- 1) It is expected to be consumed with the use of a knife and a fork 2) It costs at least 100% more than it should.

That said, are you sure you're not having a Cheeseburger with Bacon? And don't forget to hoist the pinky fingers if picking up the burger -- "When in doubt, pinkys out."
