I don't think anybody is dismissing anything or anyone, just showing a bit of sympathy for the awkward situation where there's been no response. Obviously it's not what Nik nor I would presume anybody else wanted.

I've no doubt she'll be doing what she can to resolve the issue.
Best regards, John

I seem to be getting repeated notifications for some subscribed threads - I received one this morning which was a repeat of one I had 2-3 days ago.
K-3 II, K-3 and K-30 (now running the Hacked K-50 f/w, so it thinks it is one of those ), & some Sigma and Pentax lenses (and a lot of old 35mm gear!) - and now a K-70 from SRS

The answer to that is probably spam posts. By the time you go to look at them they will have been removed.
Best regards, John

Does the new K3ii use the DBG5 grip or have Pentax changed it again?
Also when the new FF comes out will it have the same footprint and use the DBG5 or once again will it have another new grip?
It may not be of interest to some, but I have quite large hands and always buy the grip. I also like the extra battery of course.
CHEERS Vic.
Born again biker with lots of Pentax bits. Every day I wake up is a good day. I'm so old I don't even buy green bananas.

Grip is the same Vic, I doubt it will fit the FF body though.
No equipment list here but thanks for taking an interest. My Flickr

Even when the K5 and K3 had the same footprint they changed the locating pin diameters and moved buttons around so the grips were not interchangeable.

Mike. Have you read that somewhere? I can't find it written down anywhere.
Barrie. I know that. I've got a K5iis and a K3. That's why I asked the question.

I have IE11 set to ask me about any sites wanting to save cookies on my PC so that I can block those I don't want (which is most of them!), and just started getting a number of cookies with ".pl" extensions popping up when I log on after receiving "New User Post" messages for threads to which I have subscribed - can anything be done about that (ebay, etc., is bad enough for these, so don't want any on this site!)?

Nope - Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit - no Win 8 crap here!

However, no similar ".pl" cookies have made their presence known since I posted on the 19th.

I'm not going to swear, but Windows 8 isn't a c**p operating system, it's very stable, loads very fast and is generally good. Some don't like it because it introduced some new ways of navigating compared to the previous Windows OS's and therefore requires getting accustomed to change, but fact is you can easily configure it to behave in a very similar way to Win7. We run a mix of Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 at work; we use our computers heavily all day every day, for all manner of applications and I don't think anyone in our office would change back to Win 7 after getting used to Win 8.

I'm not offering a personal opinion here, just trying to give a balanced view.

I've been running the Windows 10 preview for quite a while now David, and I think it's going to be an excellent merger of windows 7 and windows 8.1
Fundamentally windows 8.1 did address much of the concerns others have about windows 8 in general, but windows 10 will suit those set on windows 7 perfectly.
It launches to the desktop, and has a normal windows start button setup. All in all it's a great merger of both.

I was probably OTT to referring to Win 8 as crap - apologies, but it was a poorly phrased reply to a rather OTT post by someone else. .

OTOH, I have not been impressed by what I have read and heard about WIN 8/8.1, and it would seem that many others across the World appear to feel the same - why else would Microsoft have ditched the concept of WIn 9 and be jumping straight to WIN 10? However, I'm not very impressed by what I see/read so far about that either
