A chance to win one of two K-50 bodies!

This summer, Pentax announced the K-50, a redesigned outdoor DSLR that delivers lots of advanced features at a great price. Since then, we've published our in-depth review, and just last week Adorama posted some sweet deals on Pentax K-50 bodies and kits.
Now, it's time for us to put this great camera in your hands! We're happy to announce that:
We are giving away two Pentax K-50 DSLR kits!
By spreading the word about the K-50 and doing a number of other simple tasks through the widgets below, you can earn up to 50 raffle tickets to win one of the two cameras. In order to give everyone a fair shot at winning, we are hosting two separate giveaways with a wide variety of ways to enter. Entering will only take a few minutes of your time!
We would like to thank Adorama Camera in New York for sponsoring this giveaway.
The first giveaway allows you to enter simply by reading about the K-50, checking it out at Adorama, and sharing information about it, among other tasks. See the widget below for details:
Our second giveaway mainly designed for users of Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus. Earn chances to win by Liking us and Adorama on Facebook, inviting a friend to enter the giveaway, or sharing information about the K-50 with a friend.
You can of course enter both giveaways, so have at it! Good luck!

Do you want to win a Pentax FA 31mm Limited lens, voted the best normal Pentax lens by our members? Well, you're in luck, because it is already time for the next Pentax Forums giveaway! To celebrate the upcoming 3,000,000 post milestone on our forum, we will be giving away a brand new copy of this lens to a lucky forum member. The winner will be drawn at random.
We're keeping this giveaway simple so that it is very easy to enter: all you need to do to qualify is post anywhere on the forum between now and the time we hit 3 million posts, which we expect to occur within the next two to three weeks. In case you are curious, the current post count is approximately 2,983,000, and we see a new post roughly once every minute.
As soon as you make a forum post— whether it be a new thread or a reply— you're automatically eligible for the raffle! Once the 3-millionth post is made, we will start a thread in our News & Rumors forum to which you will need to reply to finalize your entry. We'll also send out an e-mail to everyone in the giveaway at that time, and you will have 36 hours to confirm your entry in the raffle. Then, all that will remain is the announcement of the winner.
If you don't yet have a forum account, or if you haven't introduced yourself to the community, this is a fantastic opportunity to do so! Here are quick links to create a free account, post an introduction, or share a photo.
Good luck! We're looking forward to your help in reaching this big milestone for the largest Pentax site on the Internet.
Like all of our major giveaways, this one is of course open to members worldwide.
