...And I hope you don't mean *me* with "some seem offended", because I posted my pic in support of low cost alternatives.

From my experience on another forum, I'm pretty sure "some" means Canonites and Nikonians :-)

One thinks you can not take a decent picture without $1,100 worth of equipment (700 body, 400 zoom) and the other thinks the Pentax SR is far, far, inferior because it should not be used in panning with slow shutter speeds or on a tripod, unlike his $1,000 VR lens.
