Was in Manhattan/Brooklyn this past weekend, and saw multiple Pentaxes! Three full days and two partials, and I saw a Pentax every day except the final morning. First night at a random soccer field in Brooklyn, saw a white K-50/K-x/whatever. In lower Manhattan saw a few walking around, and saw a K-5ish with a DA* 16-50mm in Brooklyn Heights. Anyway, more in a few days than I've ever seen in my home city...Oh, also had a film Leica user inquire about my 40mm XS at a Brooklyn flea market. "What lens is that??"...Too cool for school!

Ace Photo in Northern Virginia near Washington, DC had their big semi-annual sale. Pentax/Ricoh had a rep there for the first time with some counter space along side Sony, Olympus, and Canikon. Got a good deal on the DA Limited 20-40mm. :-)

Believe it or not: I have never seen a Pentax (in private possession) in real life, apart from mine.

People tend to favor the easy choice, even when the choices are virtually identical. I for one, don't favor any of the above binary solutions.

Have converted two novices in the past 2 weeks (and a third about 6months ago). Another is on the way. The gateway seems to be the MX-1.

Truth :/

But look at Vivien Maier. Don't need no "flipo"screen for that. Not even a mirror.

Not I; I want a K1000 (I drive my K30 like a K1000 most of the time)

Not a hallucination

A few weeks ago I was at the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge testing out the new Tamron 150-600mm lens on my Canon 5DMK3. It was early afternoon, a slightly rare sunny day. I had already been there for several hours, and plopped myself down on the side of the main path to give my arms and legs a rest and simply to indulge in the relative warmth of a spring day.

When Iím there, I kinda half checkout the stream of long lenses that pass me byómost of them I know, but sometimes there are exotica, or guys shlepping $25,000 worth of gear that simply demands attention. This time I was spacing out in the sun, and saw-but-didnít-see a gentleman carrying a very long lens and camera on a tripod. After about 25 seconds it dawned on me that the lens was whiter than the typical Canon or Sony/Minolta, so I got up off my donkey, and confirmed that I didnít hallucinate a Pentax 560mm+K-3 passing by.

Turns out to be a forum member from Tacoma (his name now eludes me) who was just starting to figure out this wonderful new camera and lens. We ended up hanging and shooting for a very pleasant hour which served to top off a very satisfying day.
