Hmmm. It looks like a manual shutter speed dial on the top.

I actually had to do some research into judeo christian philosophy to understand what they were getting at. It blew my mind the first few times I watched Evangelion.

We have some places in Michigan that carry Pentax. Camera Mart in Pontiac is where I go. I think Flint has a place too.

I went to the auto show today. I wasn't really looking, but I spotted a younger gentleman with Pentax K-30.

Mostly Cannikon with a couple of Fuji bridge cameras thrown in. I also saw I guy with a Sony A7 and a small prime which I couldn't identify.

I think it would be awesome if you could add keywords to exif data through a voice recognition system. I think the high end Cannons have a voice recording feature or similar, but it would be great to put text right into the exif ...

I think Pentax can stake a claim to have the best aps-c lineup (as in coverage of classic focal lengths) and IMHO the most photographer centric UI.

I really like the limited lenses and I think the combination of small size and high quality is what keeps me shooting Pentax. Also, other than focus breathing, I don't think my DA* 60-250 could fill my needs any better.

When I got back into photography in 2010, the reason I went with Pentax was that I had prior good experience with the brand and the K-x was a well reviewed camera at a good price.

Looking at adorama just now, it appears that pentax has the WR K-50 priced low enough to attract new users (like I was) with an awesome camera. So I think Pentax will do fine with or without the K-S1

I think 2015 is the year, partly based on what a pentax rep told me a few weeks ago.

Nothing definite, but he thought something cool was coming down the pipeline. He actually volunteered the information without me asking...

With the new TC out, I'm thinking there may be an update to the K-3 with the ability to focus reliably with f/8 lenses. To me this is a clear photographer centric upgrade that should be on Ricoh's list.

My favorite camera shop started carrying Pentax last year. I stopped by there this last weekend while they were setting up for their big 'demo days' this weekend. There were already a couple of advertising banners set up for Pentax cameras.

I've been noticing more advertising as well.

I'm hoping this means that we may become less rare here in the US :)

My first camera was a Kodak 110, maybe an Ektralite. Once I showed that I enjoyed taking pictures and didn't waste too much film ... my Dad bought me a Pentax P3. After that I've always had a Pentax as my primary camera.

Parts of Detroit are supposedly getting better (like Greektown), but I don't go down there very often.

A work buddy says that when he goes down to Detroit for an event, he runs all of the red lights to avoid getting car jacked. He also avoids taking the interstate freeway through Detroit in the off chance that his car brakes down!

What maxxxx said.

As I recall it has something to do with internal focusing. I just tried mine out and I definitely notice a change between 225 and 250 when focused at infinity.

Help with Choosing a Tele for Pentax

I've really enjoyed my 60-250. I like the bokeh and it seems to hold up really well on the telephoto end for me.

I'm hopeful that my new 60-250 will not have the SDM fail on me based on the survey results SDM Reliability Survey Results - PentaxForums.com

The lens is easily hand holdable for me and is good even wide open.
