Interesting choice of locations with some big metro areas missing (Montreal, Vancouver, Calgary...). I would've liked to see them come through Ottawa too - if they have demos to test the IIs, but I guess I'll do it some other time. Have fun for those that can make it to a town on the list .

I remember when we used to see a Pentax rep in Yellowknife regularly...

This is encouraging and I appreciate it as a Pentax user. If I can I will try to make it out to one of the Toronto area locations

Isn't a Halifax pier where the last of Barrett's Privateers ended up? Too bad Henry's isn't in Thunder Bay.

Maybe they will rotate the reps through the rest of the province/country at a future date.

It would be nice to have them here at Henry's in Waterloo.

Personally, I'd rather have a root canal than drive into Toronto.

"Godamn them all, I was told, we'd cruise the seas for photography gold, we'd fire no shutters, shed no tears...now I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier...the last of Pentax Marketeers."

(Perhaps only Canadians will get this reference, but couldn't resist.)

skism, I am just south of the border, but I speak Canadian. Stan Rogers would have laughed at your lyrics. What a voice/singer/storyteller he was!

Come on now it's not that bad. I had to go down to sign some papers a while ago Went down signed the papers, and drove home... I couldn't get out fast enough. And I lived there for 20 years. But a root canal? It does have it's advantages, it's over faster, but Toronto is more irritating than painful.

I talked to the Pentax Reps at EXPOsure, while I liked trying out the lenses, they had the 16-50, 15 ltd, and 31 ltd there, but I'm not sure apart from that if was cool or not. Kind of like talking to a sales rep who happens to sell Pentax. I'm not sure I'm a fan of talking to any sales reps for anything. Now if they would have given me some free stuff it would have been better. Isn't that what sales reps are supposed to do?

They did let me play with the 645D but that is so far away from my budget, it was like handling the Queen's jewels, you write and tell everyone you got to touch them.

A little lens cleaning both with the Pentax logo on it or a teeny tiny little case to strap an extra memory card on my camera strap with the Pentax logo. Free stuff. That's what people want from sales reps.

Is there something about the Queen we should know? Sorry, I've got a twisted mind.
