The whole thing smacks of pure sales orientated strategy and thinking at the expense of Pentax's former characteristic niche philosophy quite frankly!

...So what can I say beyond enjoy the photographic ride you're quite possibly being taken on by the camera industry folks.

I don't agree at all... putting high end features into cheaper bodies does not feel like I'm being taken for a ride at all - quite the reverse! At the moment Pentax are on fire in the 'bang per buck' stakes, especially if you take a K30/K50 model.

What really would be 'cynical' is if they crippled or limited their lower end models, as Canikon tend to do (smaller viewfinders, no weather sealing etc)...

You are clearly an inspiration to the corporate world m'friend

Whichever way you look at it, the value and quality of Pentax are spot on. That really should be enough, but it may be coloured by our world-view. The everyone does everything for selfish reasons logic is a bit bleak IMHO.

Sometimes people just want to be of good service, hoping that by being so the business will come their way. If it does and they do well, that doesn't need to change into something else in our minds, does it?

And thus we circumnavigate the issue with silky aplomb and appease all with but a handful of carefully crafted words.

Have you ever thought of being Santa's apprentice JR?

Silky aplomb? Appease all? Carefully crafted? You credit me with too much forethought, I was just speaking what I felt.
Best regards, John

Some of the full stops were distorting the page, so I've removed that post.

Sorry J.R, my mistake. I didn't realise that you were instead a slick and well practiced schmoozer!

Well, based upon the same light hearted jibe/banter then I guess oily and smarmy (amongst other variations upon a similar theme) could have been employed within my retort, but the use of the word miscreant certainly would have overstepped the mark by a considerable margin under such circumstances don't you think?
