Wouldn't an 11mm macro require the bug to be inside the lens to be photographed???

Bummer. That's pretty steep for a flash. Glad it's fixed, though!

Did they stick with the flat fee, or was the price adjusted upon repair?

I'd include the 50 2.8 macro. I wouldn't use it for portraits, but for its intended purpose, it's breathtaking.

Although I do like the new photo better, I don't have any problem with fuzzy foreground objects. Actually, it just serves as a means to draw me farther into the photo and add depth. And I don't like rules. :)

On the recent Price is Right video that has been going viral lately (the Plinko dude), a K-70 was the initial item on which they had to bid.

This issue has always made me wonder how satellite photos are taken. We have trouble with a few miles of haze. How in the world is this done through hundreds of miles of atmosphere?

It wasn't until recently that I realized that Nicholson doesn't blink throughout the entire scene...definitely adds to the effect.

Sale aside... You might look into the lemon laws in your state. After this many repairs in the first year, you may be able to get a replacement K-1. Either way, good luck!

1. What is Ricoh's assessment of--and vision for--their repair pipeline in the US?

2. Although we all appreciate the continued support for K mount, does Ricoh see any limitations in the mount, going forward toward mirrorless/video or other new technologies?

I really enjoy this monitor, too, although I wish that the display (color, etc.) was customizable. The adjustment options are surprisingly limited.

Pulled the trigger on this deal and received the lens this week. It had obviously been dropped...scratched and dented caps, hood, and body. The box was fine, so either amazon or rokinon had resold it without inspection. Now looking at a couple weeks for a replacement. Bummer.

This issue is something that has always annoyed me with Pentax. If they really claim to be weather resistant, they should put their money (warranty) where their mouth (advertising) is. If I was in the OP's shoes, I'd respond to the warranty denial with a copy of one of Pentax's water-splashed camera advertisements. A side-by-side of these two documents on their Facebook page might be particularly effective.

Great work, Adam!

Monochrome's comment suggests a question... Is the Ricoh web store included in the pricing? They carry the FA35, for example.

BH not offerening extended warranty anymore?

I'm not sure that I agree with this assessment. I don't know Ricoh's standard failure rates, but if it's even 10% for a $200 repair, they break even. I highly doubt that they were doing worse than breaking even. Since the de facto warranty is only one year, a two-year extension for a little added gravy seemed like a good compromise. Asking the consumer to fork over $50-100 for a warranty that likely should have been included with the original product seems a bit greedy.
