New RICOH IMAGING K-mount Lens Survey

I wanted to share the e-mail i just recieved from RICOH IMAGING Europe (translated in English the best i could) :

"Dear sir,



What do you think about Pentax K-mounted optics ?

In order to better understand your expectations and the way you use Pentax K-mounts optics, we'd thank you in advance, could you please spend 5 minutes for us in answering our survey : just clic here :

I haven't yet completed the questions, but this mail is close to the one i got last year together with Pentax K-S2's online announcement.

Interesting to see RICOH IMAGING asking us our opinions...
But the other questions i have in mind are :
- can we get the results ?
- does RI actually use this kind of survey further than the basic "RI shop registration & account listing collection" in marketing terms... ?

Well, let's express ourselves, and ask them also.

Interestingly, although I provided location "in USA", I was given the 10% off code for ricoh store in UK and two other stores, but none in USA

Thank you for the link. I filled out the survey. It is curious that this was not publicized in the US. They have USA for location at the end of the survey but no attempt to ask US based photographers to participate!

That is why they didn't provide a code for US users! I don't need to buy another lens anyway.

And Pentax does not recognise Ireland as a country - Maybe I am alone - the one single Irish Pentaxian
Interesting survey - no mention of slower primes all either 1.4s or 1.8s, I gave them a gentle reminder on the 200/4 Macro, told them to dump the SDM name, to not mess with the FA Limited's and that the DFA* should be able to go toe to toe with Zeiss Otus / Sigma ART ranges and that a 50-135 with faster motors would be really nice in APSC land and to stop dilly dallying and get out a rebodied DFA50 Macro

Done. That was a fun interaction if done thoughtfully.

Pretty much exactly what I wrote, added 16-50. I had to tell them I already own the K- 1 though - no tick box for that

Fine to upgrade FA Limiteds so long as the keep the classics in production also.

I've done the whole survey and it won't let me click NEXT on the last page... Now I am really pissed off...

EDIT: BACK button saved the day, hooray~!!

"Here is the 10% discount code* for your purchase of any K-mount lenses
from the RICOH IMAGING online store: PentaxLensSurvey"
