    Pentax Thread

    OK. It's been mentioned a few times before. Now it's quite obvious there's a need for it, especially since the enormous increase due to the K-5.

    Time for a Pentax only thread, don't you think?

    There seems to be quite a few of us who have bite the bullet, why not?
    The 645D guys and gals would be part of it as well.

    Re: Pentax Thread

    Sure, it makes sense to me. There are a lot of people using Pentax equipment out there. :-)

    I would rather suggest a dedicated Pentax Forum

    It certainly seems like a good idea to me.

    Re: Pentax Forum

    I agree. I think with the latest offerings from Pentax they have finally found a broader market and need a place to call home rather than "Other Cameras".

    Having said that... the other cameras have not caused any issues for me here but I can see why so many would approve of a Pentax Forum... self included.

    I have no idea how much work it would involve on the part of the site owners but I'm sure it would be much appreciated by all of the old and new Pentaxians.

    When this site got a Small Sensor forum, lots of great new members came.

    When this site got a 4/3 forum, lots of great new members came.

    When this site gets a Pentax forum, ______________

    I am not having any problems with "Other Cameras" but if a dedicated area would attract more people why not?

    Re: Pentax Thread

    I'm new here, but it seems to me the "other camera" forum is, in fact, a de facto Pentax forum. There is enough interest in Pentax that a dedicated forum seems appropriate.

    Re: Pentax Thread

    To me it looks like Pentax is at least for now popular enough to deserve a subforum of its own.

    Re: Pentax Thread

    Given the number of pentax threads in the other cameras forum, it's become a pentax forum by default, so let's make it official

    You're quite right there. Chalk me up a big DUH!
    My excuse was that I was fairly knackered after two stints in a Robinson 22.

    We may not have been noticed - us 'other cameras' crew are simply a backwater. The only hope is that one of those X100 people get curious

    Re: Pentax Thread

    Actually
    While I agree that it would be nice - if you look at the traffic of the various forums, 'other cameras' still does not do very well, so the great masters may feel that it doesn't amount to enough to warrant a forum of it's own . . . yet!

    I remember seeing something about a limited amount of available slots.

    Whatever - it would be nice, and I'm sure it would grow.

    Well, the Canon forum isn't exactly a beehive of activity :sleep006:. Just move Canon over here and give Pentax a forum slot.

    Your above comment prompted me to look. There is more activity during the past day in the de facto Pentax forum than in the Canon and Nikon forums combined!

    The first photo forum in the world where Canikon can be found under others? That would be something

    I don't own any Pentax gear, at least not yet. But, I'll add my vote for a dedicated forum.
    The number of users and their enthusiasm are growing daily!

    I PMd Guy today since I began to think that no administrator or moderator had noticed this thread. And I guess that was the case. Guy replied immediately and in no time the subforum had been created. Great - thanks!
