I've cleared my history in my browser (cookies, etc, the works), so I've started with nice fresh web browser instance. And the Ad came up.

I don't know this for a fact, but it is quite possible that the K-5 ad is a tracker ad (for lack of a better word) that tracks readers who have previously visited the Pentax SLR forum here at Dpreview. This is now a common method of Internet advertising that targets the intended audience quite specifically. And it is damned annoying and one of the reasons that I have AdBlock installed on my main computer.

It would be interesting to know if non-Pentaxians see the same ad when they browse to that page in the NYT.

I thought that too immediately, so I tested it on my buddy's computer who has never searched for Pentax ever. He had the same ad as me. So this was really IMPRESSIVE!
