Taking a page from "howieb 101's" book on some concert photography .... from Thursday (March 1st) at the Vogue Theatre in Vancouver, BC, some Q7 and Fisheye lens pics from a concert of the UK Heavy Metal band -- Architects -- I love the look of the photo in the last pic and the totally oblivious to the scene of the photog in 2 through 5 ;)

Cheers,

FWIW, the shop I work in has sold 4 or 5 of the Pentax K1's this past spring and summer, along with a few of the 24-70/2.8's and a couple of the 15-30/2.8's
and 70-200/2.8's :) As well, a few of the Ricoh GRII's :D

Cheers and, like the truth, we're still out there :)

True dat, LA_P, and it still amazes me that some folks, whilst visiting Vancouver, well the store I work at,
still purchase kit from us with both taxes? On occasion, it's a thrashed camera and they're just buying
a "band-aid" camera but, on numerous occasions, they're upgrading to better DSLR and they've been
surprised that the difference is a little as it is??

Cheers,

Well,Pepe, hopefully, what I received from Ricoh-Imaging/Pentax Canada today "will" hold true for Finland and around
the world. On the same day as the price increases, the K-3 is dropping in price by over a $100 CDN :).

Cheers,

Jack

Hi Michel,

I believe the $1250/1250$ ;) is the MSRP and, perhaps, Ricoh is going the route of
the other manufacturers and instilling MAP's (Minimum Advertised Price).

Cheers,

Jack

Hi Bob,

Well, that's a bit better. $22 less than the MRSP ;)

I know R_G and what really annoys me is that I didn't take advantage of the strong
Canadian dollar for any trips to Europe :( But, I am glad I picked up my K-50 when I did ;)

Cheers,

Hi Bob,

Tis indeed and I do, but, sadly, that's at work and I can't (precisely) remember
what our shops retail price will be for the K-3 II :( But, I shall do my best to
make it enticing enough for a lad to make a trip from the island to Vancouver :D

Cheers,

Jack

Hi D_J,

You are spot-on regarding the Canadian dollar and, ditto, worldwide pricing :)

Cheers,

Jack

And, for a while,P_G, some of the big Obamaland stores wouldn't ship to Canada :o and I imagine things will change ;)

Indeed, Matt, and I'm hoping that's something else that doesn't change -- 2 year warranty :o

HI Derek,

Sadly, it means making a trip to downtown Vancouver, as the shop where I work, doesn't ship :(

Sorry.

…. on lenses :( and K-50 body :confused: and Q-S1 body/kits

The "big" increase is the DA 560 lens with it going up
well over 1K but under the 1.5K mark. The other
two (2) lenses with (not as) large(ish) increases are
the: HD FA- 70-200/2.8 and the HD FA 150-450/4.5-5.6
lenses at over $100 but under $150. The other kind of
big(ish) ones are the 16-85 and 12-24 at under $90 and the
Q "08 Ultra Wide" at under $80.

The others range between "just under $20 and under $50"

FWIW, I'm in the photo retail business in Vancouver, BC and received
this in an email from Ricoh-Imaging (aka Pentax) Canada.

**EDIT**: In the subject line, I should have put "RICOH-IMAGING/PENTAX CANADA"

Question about lenses

You could, Martin, pick up a Q7 along with a K to Q mount adapter and pop your DA50-135/2.8
on it :). That would give you a 275 - 742.5/2.8 lens, albeit manual focus.

Cheers,

Jack

Hi Zoe,

I love "still motion" shots :) and I've found that splitting the difference,
say around 1/30, can, usually, give you enough so part of the main subject
is still (ish) and other stuff, in this case, pedestrians will have a certain amount
of motion.

Cheers,

Jack

A bit late, Blink, but for the Tamron lens, you'll have to go
to the Custom Function section (the second last one, if memory
serves) and set up so you can use an Aperture type lens.

As for the Pentax A-28-80, leave it on "A" and it's just like
an AF lens ….. minus the AF :).

Cheers,

Jack
