Two Reasons to Sell Off a US$125k Set of Pentax Gear!?

As to your inquiry why I'm selling all of my gear, I think there are two key reasons.

Mostly, I'm tired of the recurring rumors about Pentax gear, that get picked up and rebroadcast as facts, so that they can be rebroadcast as rumors, and then as facts sighting the facts as rumors, and then rumors spring out of the facts, over and over.

Additionally, I'm finding that the Pentax Q is where the future is at. Small, Light, and I can attach a 25mm/0.85 lens to it and have every bit the unique look. I think the quality of my images has nothing if not skyrocketed since I started with the Q."

So, the two reasons are 1: there are too many rumours about new Pentax stuff but those are not materialised; 2. The Pentax Q and system is really small enough and this is the future of Pentax (So, the K-mount gear should be aborted?)!?

This Pentax user, if is not kidding, is really funny enough IMHO. Either he is just not honest and brave enough to tell the true reason to sell all of his expensive Pentax stuff and has planned to switch, i.e., he thinks that there is no future of Pentax and it's better to leave now! >:-o
