Phoenix Pentaxians?

Just wondering if anyone on here happens to reside in Phoenix AZ and would like to start a meet for people to share photos, stories and tips.

Good initiative! There are quite a few members here in the Valley.

There is also a group for Arizona users: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/groups/31-amazing-arizona/

I mostly use a K-5. Occasionally the K10D. My *istD is retired for good.

My most used lenses are the FA*28-70 paired with the DA* 60-250 and the DA 12-24. For travel I sometimes just take the DA 18-135. For macro I use the D FA 100mm Macro.

In an under water: Optio WPi.

I use Silver Pentax K-5 and an *ist D with DA 15mm limited, DA 40mm xs, FA 28-200mm, 135mm 2.5, and FA 35-80mm mostly (i have a bunch of other old lenses). I'm located in east Mesa (have to update my profile) we can probably find a spot in the east valley to meet up at.

I know there are quite a few members from Phoenix here on the forum- just search the member list. I'm not in town at the moment, but would love to meet up with you guys next time I am (likely toward the end of the year).

I'm pro shooter in Tucson using a 6x7 and may be able to attend since I'm out of action after tearing muscles in my leg in Colorado.
