Amazing people on Pentax Forums

Ok so I have just joined this forum a couple of days ago. I have been using Pentax for quite sometime and
have come here in the past for product information and thoughts from other Pentaxians. After becoming a
member I decided to create a want ad for a few more lenses.

I was promptly contacted and both times the interaction was very professional and respectful. I have never
encountered this online in all my years being on the www.

Without mentioning the names of the members I purchased items from let me say that one item has arrived
today in pristine condition. I am truly amazed and honored to be among such fine human beings. The
world is moving at such a fast past and most time that good hearted feeling is missing not only face to face
but seems non existent online.

It is very refreshing to find a site that has a human feel to it, like you're among friends. We all love Pentax and
photography but the common bond I found here is second to none. Hopefully I can live up to the standard's
that have been established here.


Impressed Pentaxian

Yes but watch out for member X! Spoken in jest, my experience has been the same as yours. Also if you have a question about your equipment or anything else photography-related, you can can almost always expect expert advice freely given.

Welcome! It is a great, little community. I too, have had good experiences both buying and selling on the forum. Feels a whole lot better than the e bay, both from a trust stand point and dealing with folks who have take good care of their gear and want to see go to another good home.

Not mentioning any names here, but when I first started trading lenses I had one that I put up for sale... I sold it for what I thought was a fair price and the buyer got it...

When he opened it he emailed me back and told me that I had under valued then lens and sent me more money just so that he would feel more honest about it all. I didn't ask. He just sent it.

Such is the case with many of the fine people here on PF.
