Doom and Gloom merchants

I am writing this because I have noticed, we are getting far to many “doom and gloom”merchants throwing their arms in the air, and generally moaning about Pentax gear.
As Pentax users (well most of us) we should be pleased that Hoya /Pentax have invested a hell of a lot of money, to bring new kit for us to use and enjoy.
Just think of the new lenses developed and cameras e.g. the X70 a very good “Bridge” camera the KM for those that want a quality starter or The K20, (mines over a year old now but still going strong) and now the K7 and that has raised a few eyebrows in other make forums.
Pentax are alive and “kicking ass” as our friends across the pond say.
And if Mr Brown wants to raise my pension? Because I want a K7 very much.
And as we are voting soon, any one who is out for my vote, I could be bribed for my vote, well we know what you are like with “Expenses” don't we.
I say well done Pentax keep them coming.

Well put, let's be positive.

I' looking forward to WR lenses, maybe a decent 500mm to rival the competition and more new bodies.

Bring it on, long live Pentax.
Cheers, HG

I agree, the only reservation I had when I decided to get my K20 was the lack of an upgrade path. Now I have it in the K7, so when in about 3 years I am ready to upgrade the K7 will probably not break the bank.

When I got my K10D (first DSLR) a upgrade path didnt even enter my head tbh as I thought it would be all I would ever need .. and still do.


Saying that, what I need and what I WANT is 2 different things

I too have a mobile phone and had one for many years, as for texting I may have done one, Ever, phone calls very few, it is an emergency tool only. And it speaks the time.
I leave all the texting to the Boss (She who must be obeyed) if I want a peaceful life.
