Photo Plus Expo

Has anyone heard if Pentax will be at the Photo Plus Expo in New York at the end of this month? They are not showing on the exhibitors list. It seems odd that with the launch of the new K-3 that they wouldn't be there to show off the new Flagship.

And who is "we"? Is there a booth, or just a gathering? I suppose there is a thread about it, and I just didn't see it? lol

Oh. Pity.
A lot of the pre-reviews on the k-3 seem to be generating a bit of excitment, pentax should be capitalising on this and getting a demo-version out there and in the public eye.

Don't ask me why they won't be there. But it could well be a financial thing- the money might be better-spent on other types of PR/advertising.

Advertising isn't a strong point of pentax in recent years. Hopefully they are finding better ways to spend their budget and have a strategy that will get the company some of the recognition it deserves.

I guess we will have to sit tight and see how it pans out.

They've been running a ton of google ads, and those aren't cheap. Have you see the K-50 and Q7 banners on our site? They pop up from time to time.

To be honest i have not noticed them, but then again I haven't really been looking for them. Good to hear they are doing something though!
