Wow, the result is really surprising to me. I almost always buy from a store, so I can see the lens before paying cash for it. I only bought a couple of lenses online, specifically used ones from abroad. Oh, and also knock-offs, like super cheap lens hood or hotshoe fluid-level thingy
Times really are a-chaning, when even Pentaxians switched to online

Nothing Pentax here for miles. I did buy an SD card at Best buy once, so I voted 90%.

I wonder if the results would be different among Nikon and Canon enthusiasts? I'm not a member of any forums (except for Nikonians but I'm very inactive). Anyone that's a member of another group care to try the same poll?

Pentaxians are more often purists, and I think a poll showed a relatively higher average age. This is why I thought maybe Pentaxians would appreciate brick and mortar stores - kind of like how we appreciate Takumar and FA limited lenses and primes instead of zooms. Guess I was completely wrong

I think they just don't exist near many of us. Happily, one of my local stores has started carrying Pentax stuff again and even has some Pentax marketing materials on the counter, so that's kind of exciting. I haven't been in since the k-1 has come out, but I hope to be pleasantly surprised and see one in person.

While I did buy my k100d kit in person, since then I've had no worries buying Pentax stuff sight unseen - I expect it to be good and haven't been let down so far

I have a great local retailer that I treat like gold. In return, they treat me like royalty.

100% as there isn't any outlets or private sales worth pursuing even here in Knoxville, TN. Sorta sad but the variety on eBay and elsewhere is enormous. I'm not complaining...
