Pentax Giveaway "What will you do if you win?"

What would you do if you win the giveaway?

Gift the camera?
Sell it?
Keep and use it?
Put it in a display case?

also, what would you do with your old camera?!


I personally am torn I love my K-S2 to bits but the K1 is brilliant.

Either sell it or have both K-1 cameras and won't swap the lenses as often, but it seems economically unjustifiable.

If by any chance we reached the K-1ii, I'd definitely keep it as I can't afford any new camera now and I'd like to see what it offered - if it was the K-1 (I've got one, but two bodies are useful fir some types of work) it depends on what costs it incurred (I'm outside the USA) - If I had to pay VAT I might have to sell it and put the money towards a D-FA* 50:1.4- just so that I'd won something. I'd think hard about giving it away, but there are so many deserving cases that that would have to be a whole new raffle.

It would become my daily driver. The K5 could become the backup.

I will keep and use it. I have D-FA 100mm macro that suits K-1. A few aps-c lenses of mine also cover a full-frame image circle, so I should be good to go without buying a new lens for a while. For my K-50, depending on my needs, I will use it together with K-1.

technically, it's not that difficult - there's usially between about 90 and 180 members online at any given time - and if each of them (us) posted only 10 times, we'd rip through it - but I don't think that there's been any day yet where it's actually been achieved...
