I've got the 15mm and the 77mm. The 50 FL is well-covereved by the *55mm, the original K55mm and a very special A 50 mm f:1.2. I'm with flaviopetrone; may the best need win.
yesterday i was hoping to win something in this giveaway, but now i find that is much more important the feedback i'm getting in my post, this contest helped me to start posting more of my photos, and thats already something good. Besides that is so much fun.

There has been some re-gifting going on, which is a nice touch too, if one wins a lens you already own. Of course, I don't own one of the lenses in this offer, but that's my 5c worth anyway!
Yeah, I thought about this, too.

I'm not changing my posting habits so its highly unlikely I'll win, but if I did win the FA77, I'd hold a photo-based contest on this forum with the prize being the winner's choice of either my DA 70 Ltd or Jupiter-9 85/2.

It seems I'll have to spend more time at the computer posting than taking photos!

Couldn't have said it better.

I'd love to win any of these lenses.
On the point of the competition promoting forum participation, I think it's great idea to get more people involved. I'm members of a couple of other forums, but none match the same amount of feedback as here. Pentax forums is my favourite.

I gave up about the daily prizes. The raffle is the only possibility for me.

In my opinion, a much better concept would be to hand out the prizes to the members who were most active and positively productive in the previous month. Obviously this concept has no direct financial reasoning and thus makes no sense from Adam's stand point.
I wouldn't had won that contest either but at least it wouldn't cause the problems people are complaining already, 3 days into the contest.

I agree... but I think I'll be forced to slow down in the next days because of work.
Even a tenth place finish takes a mammoth effort...
Well, good luck with your tickets!

I have a backlog of RAWs to develop and pictures to tag & organize, so I would be sitting at the desk all the same!

Maybe it's a good thing that the system favors the unemployed...

I think that more or less everyone has the same problem...

My thoughts exaclty!
Not unemployed ATM (just working unusual shifts), that's why I have huge gaps in my forum activity...

I don't have a real job unfortunately. If I had, I would use it to buy the lenses I want instead of try to win here.
I work some days every month, so for the moment I am not that busy.
