I would like to participate and do a review.

I have a few choices that don't appear to be taken yet that I could review.

1. SMC Pentax 85-210mm f/3.5 (with close focus attachment) : SMC Pentax 85-210mm F3.5 Lens Reviews - Pentax Lens Reviews & Pentax Lens Database
2. Pentax-F 50mm f/1.7 (after testing several 50mm lenses, this is the one I kept and use daily): SMC Pentax-F 50mm F1.7 Lens Reviews - Pentax Lens Reviews & Pentax Lens Database
3. Pentax-DA 55-300mm f/4.5-5.8 (after extensive testing of both modern consumer grade zoom lenses and classic zooms like the Vivitar Series 1 70-210mm lenses, I still can't find many lenses that can hold a candle to the DA 55-300). SMC Pentax-DA 55-300mm F4-5.8 ED Lens Reviews - Pentax Lens Reviews & Pentax Lens Database
4. Pentax-A 70-210mm f/4 vs Pentax-F 70-210 f/4-5.6 (I have tested them both thoroughly).

Let me know what you want the review done on or if I can do more than one. I really, really want to win the DA 18-135mm lens so I am going to do whatever it takes.

I would like to review the SMC Pentax 85-210mm f/3.5 since when I obtained it, there was very little information on the web about this rare lens.

Adam, just about ready to send you my review but realized that with the sample photos it would be quite large attachment (more than Gmail will allow for sure). Can you let us know how the others sent their reviews to you and the sizes etc. that are allowed/preferred.

Thanks

There's no size restriction - just make sure that embedded photos (those that appear inline with the text) are no wider than 650px.

Others have used file storage services such as dropbox. If you need somewhere to upload your files, pm me and I can set up a ftp directory for you.

Some folks have received 1 or 2-week extensions, so we will likely see voting for this event around the end of the month. Reviews are trickling in and are being posted as we get the time to process them, so stay tuned!

I will be unsticking all the contest threads at this time.

Huge apology to the site and Adam, but I'll have to give up my FA 35 review... My wife just delivered our baby and there seems to be no time to do anything not related to baby stuff! It's close to the deadline now but perhaps someone might want to take the chance and do it.

Thanks!
