Popphoto also covered Pentax with black tape. One could get disturbed over it or take it as a bit of a joke on the pentaxians that tend to get in a huff and take the brand name so seriously. It feels to me to be the latter.

Here in Brazil, there is a magazine that every Pentax camera they review, they put the lens hood with the Pentax name turned to the bottom. Even on the cover, despite the Pentax been the main article of the issue. That always annoys me...

Unfortunately the lens was missing the key letters "WR". It's likely that the art department destroyed the lens in the setup for this picture, or in the subsequent cleanup.

Because it was not the "WR" version. Just the regular 18-55.
