Pentax finally advertising?

I was flipping through the December issue of Pop Photo and there is a full-page ad featuring the K-7 next to the Editors letter, a quick full-page snippet about the Kx, as well as a the back cover being devoted to the Kx (looks like it's geared towards mom's).

Could Pentax finally be advertising in a more significant way? .

Still waiting for that prime-time 45 second TV ad...

The "Art Wolf" show was brought to you by Pentax, that's be a kick in the nuts to Canon right there.

Well, no, since it's pretty much a 'The Canon Show.' Always seems Mr. Wolfe isn't quite sure how much he's supposed to show off the stuff or talk about the photography, (either in terms of gear or technique, ) but it's often worth watching, regardless.

Wouldn't mind if *every* cameramaker put on a show like that, though.

Even on dpreview, there's a banner ad for K7 when i look at the Pentax forum. Maybe that will contribute to some more objective reviews. I've also seen some Pentax ads in one of the photography magazines i looked at the other day, can't remember which.

I've seen them on websites like Mac Rumors: Apple Mac Rumors and News You Care About and RealGM: Sports Is Our Business a lot recently too.

So they're going after a pretty broad audience.

I saw ads for the 250 rebate in the London tube 2 weeks ago, sounds like a good thing!

In just about all Australian photo mags, there is a full page ad for the K-7 on it, most of which appear on the back cover.

It's been like this for a few months now - gotta be good...

That and I think they finally have money to spend on advertising. Hopefully they begin to get into more stores (think Best Buy/Costco for us Americans). That would significantly improve their market share.

I believe they are doing more adverts. Both Digital Photo Pro and my other photo mag has K7 ads in them and on the back.

Maybe all they waited for were good camera models that would stand against the competition.
This is good, since if this takes off, then Pentax would have more accessories available for them from third party makers.
For those accessory freaks..time to rejoice!

Amen! Hopefully this does take off. We need a celebration emoticon.

I really hope we aren't getting excited over nothing.
