I was just chuckling at that very post. It's nearly as funny as all the people that don't find it funny. Some of the comments are corkers.

Even pre-coffee, I didn't fall for that one.

Very bad taste and not funny.
Will probably send a few people across to Canikon

About the same mentality as G. Ratner when he said his
jewelry was crap!

Perhaps not funny but entertaining in it's own way - to borrow another quote - this time reputedly from P T Barnum "there's a sucker born every minute"
No matter how many lenses I have owned - I have always needed just one more

Hardly the same as Ratners faux pas is it? He was chief executive of the company whose products he was deriding, whereas this is something from the other forum and Pentax Ricoh are not responsible surely?

Lighten up a little, it is after all April 1st!

Well the comments are funny.

When and if they do I predict the comments will be that it is too expensive, the AF is too slow, the Canikon is better in the tests, there isn't enough good glass for it, why did they do this when they could have done that?, it is the best thing since sliced bread, I won't be buying it until the price drops by x amount, I'll wait for the next model, blah blah blah.
In fact what people say whenever Pentax bring out a new model.

Bargain.
