Greeting from a Canadian Apologist

Hi there,

I am sorry I haven't visited before. From the first K1000 I purchased for a high school photography class, to my current K5 with my go to SMC-FA 50mm f1.4 among many other lenses collected over the years, I have never been too far from a Pentax camera.

I thought I would join an online community of individuals with a similar predisposition and discover something new about the cameras that have been my companion for so long.

Vancouver, BC

Definitely a Canadian, anyway.
As a fellow Canadian, I too am sorry that you haven't visited before.
Welcome aboard.

Are you apologizing for all the bad weather Canada has sent to CNY this year? I don't blame you personally, I blame @normhead

no an " apologist " is a defender

" . . . The word apologist comes from the Greek word apologia, meaning "speaking in defense. . . . "


another person defending the belief in how good Pentax is


but is ok to blame normhead for the weather as far as I am concerned

Greetings from the rock! From Vancouver to St. John's Pentax weather sealing is essential here in the Great White (and rainy) North!

As well you should, as he's the other side of the continent. And I do everything in my power to pass bad weather your way whenever I get the chance.
