Pentax stores in DC?

Hi all,

I want to buy the Tamron 28-75 f2.8, but I've read some lenses have problems with front focusing. This being the case, I want to buy locally so I can try the lense out first. I'm new to DC so I don't know where to go to find someone who caters to Pentax users. Can anyone help me out? Thanks!

If you have transportation, and don't mind a bit of a drive, try these guys. They are located out near Dulles Airport.

Ace Photo
44710 Cape Court
Suite 122
Ashburn, VA 20147
(703) 430-3333

I would call them first to see if they have it in stock. Their web site is down, as they are changing to a new one.

I was in there a couple of weeks ago for the first time, and I was amazed at the size of the store.
