As 2021 slowly comes to an end, we'd like to wish all of our members Happy Holidays, a Merry Christmas, and the best of health!
Be sure not to miss the special events that are currently live on the forum:
- Enter our Pentax HD D FA 21mm lens raffle daily through December 29th for a chance to win this brand new lens or one of three Pentax Forums T-shirts. Also, stay tuned for in-depth review of the lens, which will be posted next week.
- Share a photo on the forum by the end of the year for a chance to win a brand new Pentax K-70

In addition, some great savings are to be had toward the end of the year, including our best forum account upgrade:
Relatively speaking, it has been a busy year in the Pentax world. It's crazy to think that at this time last year, we still didn't have the Pentax K-3 III , which has since turned out to be one of the most successful and most capable Pentax camera models to date. As we look forward toward what might be in store for 2022, in the meantime we hope you enjoy our giveaways and contests!

Welcome to the latest Pentax Forum giveaway, which features the new HD Pentax-D FA 21mm F2.4 limited as the grand prize! This eagerly awaited lens marks the first modern-era Limited lens for full frame, and includes features such as silent DC autofocus and weather sealing (if you shoot with APS-C, you can pick this lens or any other Limited instead).
Our giveaway will run from November 22nd through December 29th (extended from December 22nd). During this period, for every 6 posts you make elsewhere on the forum, you can claim one raffle entry in the submission thread, up to a maximum of 35 chances to win per member. A new entry can be claimed every 12 hours (twice a day).
Eligibility: As with other giveaways, this giveaway is open to all forum users worldwide, but users who won a grand prize in a prior Pentax Forums giveaway after November 2016 are not eligible for the grand prize in this giveaway. If you do not yet have a free forum account, please create one to be able to participate. Good luck, and be sure to claim your entries daily!
