Pentax at the Henry's Photo Show in Toronto

Hi Guys,

If you are in the GTA, have the time to check out the Henry's Photo Show, and would like to check out the K-5, K-r and 645D, you have until tomorrow to do so!

I just got back this afternoon and got to try out the K-5 and 645D.

Nothing much new to talk about these cameras - the AF is fast. Liveview AF is a dream to use and subjectively the camera handle just as well, if not better than the K-7.

Couldn't take photos as the hardware was pre-production even though the firmware was showing 1.0.

Pentax reps mentioned K-5 stock is on the way to Canada and should be arriving very soon. No word on colours for the 35 f/2.4 coming to Canada apart from the standard black.

I took some photos of the K-5 with the 645D they had on hand (I wish I had the $10,500 CDN to get one of these..I guess it'd be more as I'd need to get the lens too..)

Photos can be found at the following flickr set link!

Note: Photos are still uploading slowly... more will be added over the next couple hours.

Strange. Was there today also but didn't find anything in particular that I would call a big bargain. Course I only had an eye for particular items so I suppose I probably missed any good deals. Anything in particular you noticed? Not that it would matter I suppose since I won't be going back tomorrow. Oh well.
