I'm dumbfounded by the fact that after finally getting confirmation of a FF, 2 high-end FF lenses, and the K-S2, the most active thread is the one on the K-S2.
FF was only an issue when the trolls could taunt us about it not existing. Now that it's confirmed to exist, what have they got? They're stuck until the specs are released, then they can complain about the specs.

Personally I'm already upset it's not 30 Mp, I thought 24 was too small, 36 was too much, I wanted 30MP with two stops better ISO and low light performance. I know Pentax won't get it right, so I'm complaining starting now.

And that's why I won't buy a Pentax FF.

Some bacon and an adult beverage will make you feel better.

I can't afford it. That's why I won't buy the FF. And also why I'm drinking dishwater-whisky.

Or closed in a car door. One Saturday when I was working in the E.R. a guy came in having done that. Loose fitting shorts; leaned on his car door wrong to close it.


At one place I worked we had a man who suffered having caught it in a hinged ladder mounted on the back of one of the trucks. I had to write the minutes of the safety meeting, knowing they would be distributed to all 5000 employees of the organisation. The victim was a representative of his depot at the meeting, too.

None of a more serious nature can even be considered at this time.

I'll go for 29 MP. Just you wait, I'll whine like an air raid siren! (Which is quite different from the sirens of the hociR, btw!)
