We are very generous: the increase in unique visitors and impressions generated by the give-away leads to additional advertising revenues for the forum's owner which far more than offset the price of a FA 31mm f/1.8 Limited.
Actually, it doesn't. Guess some people just don't deserve nice things!

It sure looks like there are a LOT of Pentax shooters (me included) that would love to own a FA31mm! Wonder if Pentax/Ricoh has noticed this contest thread? If they just dropped the price a bit........ ;-)

Increased popularity and demand is, if anything, from a business standpoint, a reason to RAISE prices, not reduce them.

Hummm... maybe if they're really selling a bunch of them.


Wonder if they do sell many of them? Would like to own the 31mm and the 77mm someday but that's a lot of money.

Adam, don't mind Mistral75's comment, I'm sure he won't win the lens anyway. I think, the PF site is very generous, specially coming from the point of view of someone who lives outside of the US like me. And even if the give-away is just an IR remote control for our Pentax DSLR, I'd even be grateful as these are something you won't accidentally pick-up on the road on a random Saturday photo outing. Here's to more give-aways!

The 31mm would look mighty handsome on my old LX and my K-3, as well as the new KLX (I made that up...)
