I like the orange on the bottom of the top black K-xx... looks very... industrial... or rugged... not sure the word I'm looking for

So I am at CES and it was an awesome experience to be a new Pentax K30 owner (just over a year) and being able to put the multiple lenses on my Camera that I could not afford. Tried the 20-40,31,43,77 Limited Also Tried the 50MM Macro, 560MM (Tried Hand Shooting this Beast and its actually amazing)

Does anyone have a suggestion of something I should try before the show is over. My Favorite right now is the 77 Ltd but I like the 31 Ltd for Distance.

I strongly recommend to try and remove that tape from the new camera
Or at least take a picture of the back on that camera .

Try seeing the backs of the new cameras Glad you got to try out those lenses. Is there one of the 16-85 lenses laying about to try?

DA15 is nice, DA35 Macro works all-around and have macro too, K3 is wow, DA70 is cheaper than FA77, DA100 macro, DA50-135 and DA300.
DA560 is nice but should have been a 400/4 and 560 /5,6 dual lens and should be cheaper. I was going to Germany for Photokina and try the lens at Foto Gregor in rain with a shaky monopod, one there good at a woman(iso800 f5,6 1/350 no sharpening), the other one is with mine one lens:

Unfortunately, this year, I didn't go. In the past, I did go to the Pentax booth (still have a swag Pentax thumb drive). Last time I went, the only lenses that I was able to 'try' were from the Sigma booth. Would have been nice at the time if the Sigma 200-500mm f/2.8 was built for K-mount.

Sorry, wasn't trying to correct you in any way. I was trying to understand where you were going. My engrish is FAR from perfect

You can always say "Try and steel yourself(!?)..." which can be translated as "try and brace yourself"... that's why I wasn't sure where you were going with the unfinished sentence .

Try to get as many pictures as possible of the sides of the new camera and two big lenses in their enclosures. This may be somewhat tough due to the enclosure. Use your cell phone camera if you need to be discrete. Maybe pretend to fall towards the display(multiple times) and snap your picture(s) quickly. At a time like this you shouldn't be concerned about making a fool of yourself in front of other show attendees, I'm sure they will understand.

Exactly, surely a cellphone could get a side angled shot towards the rear of that new camera...

Be bold... ask the person behind the glass to shoot a picture for you with your camera.
