Write a Pentax DSLR review on Flickr

If you want to help out the Pentax cause or just give your two pence on what you like/don't like about your DSLR, and are a Flickr member, why not write a review?

I was surprised to find NO REVIEW yet written there for the K200D, for example. I'll be adding one once mine arrives and I can say something semi-intelligent about it.

You can search Flickr images by camera, which is handy. (You can see how many images uploaded by that camera's users (etc.). A Yahoo log-in works at Flickr, so let's go to it Pentax Fans!

Good idea. Added mine.
Now it's up to Pentax to meet the marketing challenge...

Well, there may be more than one way to get there, but if you click on the search button in the upper right of any Flickr page, you go to a Search page:
Flickr: Search.
To the right of the Search button is a link that says "Search by Camera" (direct link: Flickr: Camera Finder Pentax doesn't show (yet! ) so you have to choose Pentax from the "Select a brand" dropdown menu. Pentax page direct link: Flickr: Camera Finder: Pentax.

At the bottom of the Pentax page you'll see a stats page for each Pentax camera. Click on the link to any Pentax model to see that model's page. (The top 5 are also at the TOP of the page). The URL is rather predictable:Flickr: Camera Finder: Pentax: K200D.

On the right of the individual camera model page is a "Yahoo! Member Reviews" section with a link that says "write one". They are actually using Yahoo Shopping for the review section (since Yahoo owns Flickr). This makes it even more embarrassing that nobody has written a review!

I see no reason to not go back and add reviews for earlier models also, (maybe pointing people to the newer models?)

Weird, just doesn't appear when I use safari or Firefox. No review area or reference to yahoo, apart from the small logo at the bottom right hand of the page.
