DP is tied to Amazon in all ways (as its owner).

We might be a bit thin skinned. Pentax is so far down on the VU meter, we should be gratified that DP is willing to find humor in our indignation (we as Pentaxians, not the royal we, as such).

Agreed. It's just gotten a bit predictable. According to DPR, the most interesting thing about the K-S2 is that it doesn't have LEDs like the K-S1. SMH...

Who cares... 3 Pentax are part of the highest rated DSLR on the forum. We don't need a review ;-)

I noticed that too. Quite annoying indeed

Don't hold your breath, Pentax Dudes. Where's that MZ-D that they 'announced' in - what was it again - 2001?
Sorry, but that was my thought as well, though someone should remind them that was two "Pentaxes" ago...not the same company and not the same tech environment.

I'm convinced it's all click bait - we get so hyper responding that I'll bet their click counters can track it.

And that's how they get paid.

Don't feed the Troll. eh?

Yeah, but... click bait. Targeting. Pentax. Users.

Nah, I'd say taunting plain and simple. Sorta how you mock-punch and then hug your utterly clueless cousin you have nothing to talk about with, and you wouldn't even look at if you didn't go way back...

So you know what makes a bully REALLY mad?
  1. Know you're a better boxer than he is, but he doesn't know it.
  2. Walk away.
DPReview will be forced to 'late-review' and 'ignore' and 'belittle' product after product after product for years - products that will gather professionals and high-end enthusiasts one by one, and will be user-reviewed as 'Better than the old standys'. Eventually they'll be shown to be the small, meaningless bullies they are.

Just walk away.

Actually I don't care about whatever happens there, just found this amusing. But I kept myself away for a long time.

Looking down their main page I was surprised to see about half of the blurbs were Canon related. That in itself is not odd, what is odd, is that Nikon was nonexistent. I do not frequent the site, so maybe it will be all Nikon in a week. Is DP tied to Canon in some way?

What I really liked is the poll question:
Would you consider buying the Canon EOS M3?
-I live in the USA and I would buy it if I could
-I live in the USA and I have no interest in buying it
-I live outside the USA and I'm considering buying it
-I live outside the USA and I have no interest in buying it
-Don't care / what's the EOS M3? / Where's the Pentax K3 review? (etc.)
Tied to Amazon, money talks!
And Monochrome is right, your all being Click-baited...
DPReview is Doooomed!

It's an inside joke, but it is a little poke at Pentax fans. People asked about the K-3 review for months in every "News" thread before it was finally reviewed. Now people continue to post "Where's the K-3 review?" even though they know it's been done. Kind of like we keep saying "Pentax is doomed" as an inside joke.

Oh well then -

Now that you explain it it's actually pretty funny, but the uninitiated won't ever understand - sort of like PiD (which some of us have stopped using) and changing the title of the 'Why I won't buy a K-3' Uber-thread.
