Sounds great.

I attended a Pentax roadshow event for the K-7 in San Jose, California, back when that camera was being rolled out. It was very informative, and a terrific hands-on opportunity.

Don't see why Pentax couldn't have a tour stop in Atlanta, which is, after all, a major metropolitan area.

Way cool. That's going on my calender right now. The last one in 2009 for the K-7 was really cool. About time!

Can you actually fly anywhere within the us without going through Atlanta? But how about Charlotte, Nashville, Miami, New Orleans, etc.?

A few years ago I spent a year flying all over the country (work-related) except for the Southeast, and never did go thru Atlanta. Only twice did I have a connecting flight.

I figured Atlanta would be the most centralized for the region.

IIRC the joke when I was in college in Virginia was, "When you die here and go to heaven, you change planes in Atlanta."

Very nice!
It is a petty that they do not come to DC!

Marking July 24th in my calendar right now.
Would love the opportunity to see all these cameras and some lenses in person.

Thanks!

I'll be at the Chicago one for sure. I'd love to see the 645D which they said would be there.

Oh, yeah...
