Well... There is that. Nobody there had any idea why Ricoh/Pentax didn't show. They were expecting them to be there.
Going to have to post a black photo in "single in" today representing my attempt to catch a picture of the elusive K-1 in the wild

I heard from a London Drugs employee that despite being told that quite a few people were interested in the K-1, the Pentax/Ricoh rep chose to go to some sort of meeting instead. Having taken the trouble to pay for a ferry (and sit in ferry lineups) in order to get there from Gabriola, I wasn't too impressed. On the other hand, the Sony rep was present. Sony FF is currently my main system. One of these days I'm going to choose between Pentax and Sony...

Ricoh-Pentax was a no-show in Vancouver yesterday (at the London Drugs on West Broadway at Cambie). Wasted my trip and parking meter fare.
