Steve, it would also be big and heavy
But, of course! Only MILC cameras are compact.

some Pentax reps should self-incinerate, too, for a good measure
It is the least they could do.

bent prism
I thought that Ricoh (I mean the livE hociR) had addressed the bent prism issue that Hoya had denied. Oh, well, will these persistent problems never end?!

Steve, no, they haven't. I mean, there hasn't been an official statement from the Corporate Overlords that the problem exists, moreover, there hasn't been a single report, that the problem exists!! How screwed up is THAT, I ask??

Clear as mud! And, it being mentioned in a patent, it can't be a problem, right? It's a feature!

Have you ever thought of writing a "Get rich quick" book? They seem to be popular. Might even make you rich.

Wow, this thread is still going? I unsubscribed from it, but today someone liked a post of mine that's way back on the 1st page. I wonder if that person plans to read all 137 pages to catch up.

I won't buy any camera until the model # matches the page count. I hope the FF gets announced quickly and it's called the K-137.
