Forum member Duplo has just posted a small giveaway photo contest in which you can win his copy of the Pentax-DA 21mm F3.2 Limited lens! Essentially, this is a landscape photo contest in which your photo should "convey the raw power of mother nature and her fragility".
There's a special story behind this 21mm- it's taken some award-winning photos, been through temperatures as low as -40 degrees C, and traveled around the arctic. We hope that trough this contest, the lens will find a great new home by another Pentaxian!
