Pentax Rep in PDX! Pro Photo Supply 10-27

Talked to him on Friday (his name is Don) and he had a 18-250 prototype! He geustimated that they would be available around Thanksgiving for those who were wondering. I put it on my k110d and I think I'd love to have this lens, but I'm not sure about the price tag. I could get the 50 1.4 and the 50-200 for less only I'd miss on some shots...

He said he'd be in around 9:30 am though the store opens at 9am. Also the Tamron rep is there...

The address and phone # there is:
1112 NW 19th Ave
Portland, OR 97209
(503) 241-1112

Just thought I'd let anyone who happens to be in my neck of the woods know... Prices on some stuff seems to be pretty decent, but others seem around 10% higher than internet pricing. And it looks like a lot of stuff sold before I got there... like all of the 50 1.4's and the 50-200's. Of course they were willing to order stuff at the promo prices. But regardless, I thought it would be good to show support for Pentax so hopefully they keep more stuff in stock.

Re: 18-250

Last thursday evening (27-10) in Yodobashi Tokyo they had a Pentax 18-250 on display, for an official?? release on friday.
Looked and felt the same as my Tamron 18-250.
Salesguy stated that it was "probably" a rebadged Tamron, and that the coatings were "possibly" different.


Pentax Y 64.800 = ~ € 390,-
Tamron Y 59.800 = ~ € 360,-
