SRS Microsystems, UK - 100 years of Pentax event - who is going?

Saturday 23rd November 2019

Pentax's senior management and the president Mr Takahashi will be there... plus several ambasadors... plus the model of new APS-C flagship...

Who else is coming from these forums? I'll be there

Pentax 100 Years Event | SRS Microsystems

Kind Regards

David

I will be there, booked in to three ambassador talks and the president's lunch hour. I hope to try out a few lenses while there for my wishlist, but not planning on buying on the day. I expect there will be some black Friday prices so resistance is needed.

I was told there will be some massive Black Friday+ type discounts but, as with you, hands on glass - hands off wallet will be my starting policy

Resistance might be futile then. I have notes on prices from previous BF sales so those are the starting point for me, and I can resist those as I can't say I really need anything.
I also want to get my hands on a K-70 to replace my failing K-50 just to keep the 18-135 company. We shall see.

Maybe I should ask directly to Chris

Amazon and Currys have it on 29th, the last friday in the month.

I expect SRS would have deals to match or exceed those available the following week..

How I would go if it was near me.... Where did you find this, did Ricoh post somewhere I could keep an eye on, or just on the srs page?

I speak to them quite regularly. They are the biggest dealer in the UK and one of the biggest in Europe. And they are amazing people.
Relying on Ricoh marketing would be a massive failure so it is better following them directly via newsletter

Details of the event here:
Pentax 100 Years Event | SRS Microsystems

It is a solid information and will be a great party
