I should join, we could have an "APS-c shots and thoughts" thread. And unlike here, the majority of Nikon users could join in and contribute images. Naw, that would be just wrong.

Good news, but I haven't received my confirmation e-mail. Been way over 10 minutes. Is everything ok?

Could be a glitch due to high traffic. I've now activated all inactive accounts so you should be good to go!

Best wishes with the new site.
At least we will have a familiar place to go when Pentax finally dies because as we all know: Pentax is DOOMED!

Oh come on, Pentax isn't going anywhere! They will always be an underdog loved by many but noticed by few.

Who knows, maybe if after a year or two Pentax seems stagnant, I'll have to pick up a by then heavily discounted D800 and some second hand lenses to go with it. After all I plan to use it for landscape... even AF is a frill. But, these new offerings may a sign that Ricoh is determined to get back into the game...and may be willing to put out some serious coin to make the brand palatable to users other than hiking/landscape/wildlife guys like myself. I really don't see a lot of other photographers out where I go... I'm not sure we're really the kind of niche I'd want to stake my livelyhood on. ANd honestly, it would just take one disaster where I missed out on something because I didn't have more resolution to make me pull the trigger. I'm not opposed to all things Nikon. I just see things as an eb and flow. Nikon may be better at a point in time, but Pentax will close the gap or catch up...I'm willing to give Pentax some time to make some more noise... but the clock is running. That Sigma DP2 is really making me aware of the limitations of 16 MP APS-c on a bayer array.
