I believe the denominator {total number of tickets} will be somewhat larger than it was for October or November.
I'm too lazy to count up total number of tickets issued in either month but both you and Larrymc "won" despite the odds being seriously against either one..
In either month, 1 ticket would have been "enough" - if it had been the right one.
yep

the effect of the random number generator I believe

just weird that both of us had 7 chances

In that case I will not get the "K-3ii replacement" - I have already posted too many times., and the several guys who have more tickets than I do are also not going to get it either. I'm glad I purchased the KP last year.

Maybe the guys ahead of me in ticket count have a chance, afterall.
I'm still glad I purchased my KP last year!

added: In just about another week, some lucky person will learn that s/he will get a new camera someday!!

What I do know is that every post counts, and posting never hurts, so I will continue posting as normal - even after I donít Ďwiní.

Well I had 7 chances as you did but the random number for me to win was #139 and #21 for your winning number.

I got a bit burned out posting after October. I'm just don't have a lot to say about all of this everyone posts about, my method was to post photos and use that as the basis for my comments as well as commenting on other's photos.

Indeed, the number of posts has increased tremendously - probably because everyone is curious about this new APSC "flagship".

for some reason I just concentrated on part of that message despite seeing it many times

And now we are at the point where just 20 posts per day could put someone else in a similar position
{why do I feel like I'm selling something cheap on the boardwalk? - as most everyone recognizes, the "K-3ii replacement" is well worth receiving}
