Yes, personally I prefer the classic and unique Pentax green stripe to the "me-too" red stripe.

It looks nothing like a canon L lens to me, and I have two canon L lenses on my desk at present. I'll point out the red ring on canon L lenses is plastic, not metal.

Actually I think the Samsung's blue line is a lot better but since it was taken already...

Now any black lens with a red ring looks the same, no matter the shape, size and the shade of red?

I can still remember riding the back seat of one of these…beautiful car, odd choice of colours.

Yeah - whatever next!!

The 10-30mm is the one that most interests me. That would cover a good range for my type of photography.
A (10 or 12) -28 DC WR to replace my clunky DA 12-24 thx. Appears in the road map so when it comes out I'm gonna be happy as pig in er, mud.

Canon doesn't really have patent on red. Pentax has had a red logo on the strap for ages. They are just being more consistent.

(is it just me or is this forum still on summertime?)

Canon L have for sometime now been identified with the red ring, so I'm not surprised that some people think they look similar.

I think they look somewhat similar at first glance. Probably a good thing though, it will turn more heads of those who are not familiar with pentax.

"Hey is that a Canon L? which camera you ha-- what!??!?" *spills coffee*

IMO it looks more like a voigtlander

The kit strap included in the box does, but the entire lens itself is more like a Takumar with a red bling on it.
