Sounds good, we can at least have some fun shooting together. By then, I might have my LF camera done so it may be more than a Pentax reunion. :D

I have always wanted to open a store in Las Vegas. There are plenty of retail spaces available and although margins are tight, with the right investors and the right crew, it can be a good money maker.

Casey's had a Pentax connection and was selling their P&S's. They could get other Pentax cameras but tried everything in their power not to. :D

I like to supprt local businesses too. With as big as Las Vegas is you would think there would be a camera store on steroids here.

I'm bumping this old thread to report that there are no real camera stores left in Las Vegas. The last one, Casey's, went out of business last month and the location was aquired by B&C Cameras. B&C is like a Best Buy without sales people who know their product.

So, as it stands now, if you want to buy a Pentax camera new, you can try Fry's for a consumer level or P&S camera or order through B&H or Adorama. I have had spectacular success with both.

After I sold my Canon gear, I used my Mamiya RB67 and my Pentax P3. I finally found a little K-x to play with. Updating the firmware will be a scary thing but otherwise I really like this little camera. I needs accessories!

EDIT: did the firmware update so now I'm feeling like a boss!

I added to my collection again this week. On the cheap end, I bought a 49mm CPL. On the other cheap end, I got a monster mirror lens with what I hope is a T mount. I have no idea what this thing is other than it's big and probably is going to take bad mirror lens type pictures! :D

Any ideas on what type of lens/paperweight I have?

(Pics taken with my cell phone)





For comparison, here it is with a 49mm CPL beside it.

My most recent acquisitions are a Takumar 70-200 F4 lens and some 49mm filters. I know nothing about the Takumar lenses, if they are considered mediocre or good or great but I paid $25.00 for it.

I might be in the minority here in that I shoot a P3. No winder, no AF and my backup body is a RB 67. :lol:

I'm thinking about selling the RB to get a Pentax 6x7. I don't see myself getting a Pentax digital any time soon.
