why not

I trust you not to spam

but keep in mind, the winners are determined by a random number generator

I actually had more chances in the October raffle than in the November one where I was chosen by it.

BTW, although I am not entering, I have qualified for 4 chances and probably will have more by Jan 9's cut off

We might add that in both October and November the number ‘drawn’ corresponded to someone who was not holder of the most number of ‘tickets’, but somone who had more than two of them.

I entered "Grand Prize" 'raffle' on Dec 2nd, and obviously have not quit since then. If I were you, I would continue posting as normal, as I have.

Only takes one winning ticket to win.

But you 'won' in October, holding 7 tickets when I had 11, so holding more just increases the odds, doesn't determine 'winner'.
If you have used that lens half a dozen times by now, you have gotten much better use than I would have, so I certainly don't begrudge your 'winning'.

Uses?

I like Pentax cameras for the ease of use, is APS-C as easy as previous models?

---------- Post added 01-02-20 at 11:20 AM ----------

Opps, I also would like to know how does it perform in winter weather?

My KP is and does fine. We won't know about the new camera until sometime after this GiveAway is over - in fact whoever receives the camera may one of those who provides us with information about those.

Well, Ricoh must know that the expectations are high for the K-new -- the company has stoked them itself, not least through its "100 Years of History" events -- and it can't afford for the new APS-C flagship not to build on the strengths of its predecessors and even put the bar a little higher. And the leaked images of the prototype do seem to point to some evolution in the usability department.

Nor is there any reason to doubt that the new model will be at least as weather-sealed and cold-proof as its predecessors (- 10 °C / 14 °F).

But, strictly speaking, even those predictions are informed speculation at this point.

APS-C is just the sensor size. The cameras are as easy (or difficult) to use as DSLR or mirrorless cameras with any other sensor size

I note you've asked this question a couple of times previously, and some of our members have answered on those occasions. I wonder, did you read their responses?

Mike, I think @Marnie642 is referring to the Pentax well know friendly ergonomics.

500 plus posts is crazy. I didn't even manage to get 100 the first round, I like your odds. Good job

[quote=aslyfox;4884284]In either month, 1 ticket would have been "enough" - if it had been the right one.
