Hello from LensCoat

Hi PentaxForums,
LensCoat is looking to make some - LensCoats for Pentax lenses so we thought this forum might be a good place to locate some local (NY/NJ) Pentax lens owners so that we can try to get some lenses in hand to take measurements.

Best Regards,
LensCoat

Have you visited B&H and Adorama? They'll let you try out Pentax lenses and I think Adorama even does rentals.

Hi Adam, thank you, yes we have a good relationship with both B&H and Adorama but the lenses we are looking for are not in production like the 300 f2.8- 600 f4 so we are hoping to find some local users.

Those are hard to come by- you might have to buy a copy of each and then sell them again when you're done. I would post in our wanted section and also check our marketplace listings.

Thank for the tip although I dont believe that would work for us. We will put some feelers out and see what happens. Thanks again.

Best regards,

Adorama does indeed have a huge rentals department: ARC, Adorama Rental Co - Pro Photo and HD Video Equipment Rental
