K-5 Rental

I emailed Camera Lens Rental in Indiana yesterday. And they say they have plans on purchasing the K-5 and have it for rent. I will be doing that once or twice this winter to see how it works for me, and if it does I will be purchasing one sometime next year.

This evokes both jealousy and pity. Have fun inevitably dropping the money on the K-5

I'm working for something nice for all PF members if/when they decide to buy a K-5 from Adorama. Hint: there will be a % discount

That would be so cool Adam if you could get that done. Guess I will start getting my K20's and grips cleaned up to sell them for my upgrade.

It's a question of when, not if

Let me just say that Adorama has been very excited about some ideas I've proposed, and we're working on implementing them!

Will the "when" be in the next few weeks perhaps Adam? I'm pretty solid on buying the K-5, it's just when and from where at this point.

On a side note, I have a wedding to shoot on the 22nd of October. Think I have any shot of getting a K-5 in hand by then?

Adam:
Do you mean like a "group buy"? Will be a minimum # of buyers?
Thanks

Pentax should contract you. You do a better job promoting their brand than themselves!
