Awesome advert!! and good to see in Oz too.

Word of mouth works pretty good as well. I've managed to get 4 different friends/family into Pentax.

It can be hard though. One friend "tried" the Pentax but in the end got a Canon 400D (??) because she said she the dial control felt weird on that side of the camera (wtf?? the 40d, etc all have it the same side as well). I figured she was already sold for some reason on the Canon. I don't know how you can pick up the Pentax body and not be impressed. Such a solid feeling, well built camera compared to the competition.

I got my brother to get a pentax too, I went round his one night with a canon and a pentax. He took one look at the canon and hated it without even picking it up!

He picked up my K100D and instantly said "its mine now".
The next week he bought one! and loves it!

he now has a tammy 70-300 too!
He love to take pictures of birds, in particular Barn Owls
