Blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.

In the latest National Geographic magazine (NOV 2007), they have an advertisingl page after the advertisements of the dslr companies below:

#1 Olympus
#2 Canon
#3 Sony a700
#4 Nikon D40x
#5 Pentax

Ad was quite bland. Imaging Evolved.PENTAX then shows 8 light saber type glowing rays over the camera and it doesn't even show the model. Doesn't make me want to buy it.

And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,
"Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is the K1, or there; believe it not.
For there shall arise false cameras, and false lenses,
and shall shew great dynamic range and wonders;
insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect."
Behold, I have told you before.
Thus spoke the K10D
Lo, 'tis false advertising. After me shall come the camera whose shutter I am not worthy to trigger. And it shall be called:

K2D!

And the K2D answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfill all righteousness.

Then he pulled the trigger.

And, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of Pentax descending like a dove, and lighting upon him.

And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved camera, in whom I am well pleased.

... "The little geek who always wins technology fair" ad on magazine, that was very cool! The best magazine ad Pentax ever did, ...

I would much rather be a geek than a pentaxian! What the heck is that?

Oh, yeah, the ad is the best, in my opinion, and it is exactly who Pentax is, in my opinion and what I want Pentax continue to be, in my opinion. It really made me laugh and impressed to know how Pentax/Hoya is serious about their success.

No, no calendars.
I have a Pentax cup and a small Pentax battery ventilator though (which is used by my 3-year old most of the time).

And lo, Pentax went forth and made physically impossible lenses, such as a 1 lb pancake 800mm f/1.
