The Pentax K-1 is the most popular camera on DPReview! :-)

I noticed the other day that the K-1 wasn't even on the "Most Popular Camera" chart, and now all of a sudden, it's at the top!

it only means which article on DPR has most traffic. It changes so quickly that it has little depth.

But it is unusual for so much interest to be shown on that site in a Pentax.

Yes, I realize that, I just thought that all the Pentaxians would want to know just the same. A while ago, everyone was voting, trying to bring Pentax to the top as the most popular camera...

Hopefully this bodes well for long-term sales, but only time will tell. But I've been encouraged by the amount of positive and even enthusiastic comments the K-1 has generated.

I find it interesting that the Panasonic LX100 is still in the top 5. That camera has been out for quite a while now, but it's still a beauty!

I remember the vote on Camera Times. Camera Times We got Pentax to No 1 spot there. Pentax is now second behind Nikon.
  • Nikon (29%, 768 Votes)
  • Pentax (29%, 763 Votes)

Is that one of the polls we hijacked or did this happen without Pentax forumites stacking the results?

I don't think it's a poll, I'm not sure where they get their data from. If you look at their main site, it's on the right side bar.

Very definitely hijacked. There were rumours, unsubstantiated of course, that members could, by using a different computer terminal, vote twice or even three times.

I don't have much idea what these numbers signify, but it's refreshing to see Pentax at the top of any competitive list
