You know how Pentax could really pleasantly surprise me this Fall? Release the darn 60-250 DA* lens for the K10D ! Thats the only surprise I want to see.

That would be nice to see....I'm still waiting to get my 16-50 and 50-135. They ordered them for me last week. Hope to get them soon.

ben,

do you have to pay for all the gear from Pentax or do you get it for free?

Do I have to answer that question? Let's just say that we have an arrangement that I find very satisfactory..

Ben,

We call that borrowing without intent to return.

It truly is a wise move that both Pentax and you crossed paths and found mutual satisfaction and supportive synergy. Glad to see that you are happy with the products. The work shows it.

Sounds like a line from the Godfather...

You should expand your name to other industries.

A new sneaker called the Nike Kanarek you can wear during photoshoots,

or a new sandwich in the Carnegie Deli called The Benjikan that is pastrami with escargot on rye served in the new Cyprus branch.

Hi Ben

I understood that you do long term testing, as you are more likely to hit 100,000+ shots before anyone else! Correct?

Obviously you cannot return them until they break, and then you need to test the revised design to see if it's improved!

Simple facts.

I'm looking to move to a dusty, wet location where I can test the weather sealing. I've found the wet bit, living here in Gloucester, but the dust is not up to much, mud I can find!
