Voted. There's a lot more name recognition with Sony in today's technology. Sad the poll shows people believing they are the next rival as Sony still got so much more work to do.

Does it really matter! Isn't every other forum on earth going to spread this same message?

I know my Pentax will always be FIRST in my books besides, why should I do Pentax's advertising. There has been 6 full-colour, multi-page flyers in the paper in the past week-and-half and none of them were Pentax.

TV advertising has been for Nikon and Canon - none for Pentax. What's that say about Pentax!

Done!

While I agree that anybody on any other forum could also mobilise the Sony / Fuji / Samsung hordes to vote, I still voted for the company I believed was the best alternative to C/N

Ditto:

Although I agree on the previous poster that Pentax hardly advertises compared to Canon, Nikon and Sony, I also believe in a satisfied customer as one of the best advertisement for the brand. So theres my vote!

I think they call it "brand recognition"...
aaarrrrgghhhh, Sony has realeased 2 yes only 2 DSLR cameras, and they have any recognition?!? Outrageous! Pentax is better brand anyway (in camera making) it just would be nicer if more people realised it!
