I would like to see a contest based only on "likes". Anybody can churn out posts, but you really have to earn "likes", usually by being especially helpful and/or funny. It is perhaps the best indication of how much an individual contributes to the community here.

So maybe a nice prize for someone with the most "likes" over a month period. Or honors to the person with the most likes at the end of the year. To me that would be a much more interesting contest.

There seems to be a huge following here on the forum for multiple 50mm ownership.

I'm beginning to wonder if I'm doing it wrong by only owning one, yes... I hear some people screaming already "only one".
K ... yours says "f1.2" on it ... that's not a 50 ... its a bokeh monster !!! J

PS - everyone from the "hociR K-3" thread coming over here to play ?! J

Don't worry, MSL, there's a simple solution - OH and this applies to everyone in MSL's situation - just don't post and let me, who doesn't have many lenses, win. Easy!
If I win, I'll sell it to you cheap. )
Gotta feed the LBA somehow.

I almost thought Pentax just released a 24/2!

Goodluck to everyone! :-)

Agreed ... "never ending story" if I were to add in my M's (all 3), SuperTak's, off-brands, etc. ... and let's not get into 55's & 58's because they are a "close FL" to a 50mm! J
Oh forgot I also have that SMC-K55/1.8

No, we're just trying to be nice to our users Free stuff is always good!
Yes, I agree that giving away a lens to your users is nice. Having the criteria for winning be the highest number of posts + # of likes = not so nice. I think it will encourage pointless posts which dilute the purpose of forums such as these. First world problems.

Want to win a 50mm lens on Monday?

The user with the most forum activity* on Monday (midnight to midnight GMT-6 on Feb. 24, 2014) will win the lens. It's that simple! Even though this giveaway is completely separate from the February giveaway which is still live, I will still go by the standings on this page to determine the winner. That page includes the official contest time so you can see when the giveaway will begin in your region.

Our February giveaway has been a big success so far, as I've seen more positive comments/results from it than just about any other giveaway we've had to date. Therefore, feeling extra-generous, I've decided to launch this as a separate 1-day giveaway featuring the Pentax DA 50mm F1.8 lens as a grand prize (brand-new, boxed lens).

Like all our giveaways, this contest is open to users worldwide. Good luck!



*Your activity score = L + P, where L is the number of users who have liked your posts on 2/24, and P is the number of forum posts you made on 2/24 (contest time). L cannot exceed P. P cannot exceed 20 + 5L. Certain forums are excluded (Welcomes and Introductions, For sale, Wanted, Marketplace archives, Ask B&H, Pentax Full-Frame, Monthly Photo Contests, General Talk, Site Suggestions, International Forums). This thread is excluded.
New to Pentax and good to see activities like this......having fun time using my K 30 ......
