I've been reconnecting with my Panasonic FZ-100 which I have hated for two years. I still don't own a Pentax compact. I'd have the MX-1 if I didnt already have the Oly XZ-1 and a VF to go with it!

Sorry, but thought this was a 'Pentax Compact Digital & Film Cameras ' forum?
Why post Panasonic photos? Did the OP say 'any brand'? Because I have a load of Canon PnS I could post...

Unless the rules changed. One could always post shots from any compact. If the rules have changed, I'll happily remove mine, but wont be back because its unlikely I'll ever have a Pentax compact.

IOW, go ahead and post 3.

Since the very first contest, any brand has been allowed. One reason the contest started, was to build up traffic in the Point & Shoot forum. Before this, Adam was considering closing it due to low participation.. Pentax made few good point & shoots at the time. Adam graciously allowed us to bend the "rules". It has worked well and now you see great Pentax compacts like the MX-1, WG series, and the Q. The rules have been updated.

Why not enter a few Canon shots? We would love to see them. This contest is based on fun.
thanks

Fair enough, I wasn't to know the past. But to be fair, the forum title really does suggest Pentax only so for newcomers I'd recommend that the first post make conditions crystal clear, ok

I bet you will have one some day. You are already eyeing the MX-1. Olypmus just got there sooner. Hope you join us for many more contests.
thanks
