Still no leaf shutter? If Pentax wants to get a piece of this market, it must release new leaf shutter lenses for studio photographers. There is a big gap that needs to be bridged. The x-sync from DSLR is snail slow.

garypen: If companies didn't make most of the "genuine" items in China, these almost-perfect Chinese knockoffs wouldn't happen as frequently.

Gucci and LV don't have any factory in China but the counterfeit bags are everywhere. Someone I know is in the business of buying US made merchandise and ship them back to the east for this purpose. The manufactures here do not take order from certain country.

There is a typo under the spec, right below the Key Features. It says the weight is 5.4g. I think you meant 5.4kg.

Personally, I don't like the photos but I learned something from it.

“I really had no idea that there would be a possibility for setting up a studio.”

“I was under the impression that I was going to be photographing athletes on a stage or during press conference where I would take their headshots for our archives,”

Bring a paper cutter to a gun fight. That's one of many photogs worst nightmare when we are not getting the essential information of the event. So who is responsible to find it out? Us, the photographer, unfortunately.

If in doubts, it won't hurt to haul the entire army of all your gears to the event. better be safe than sorry.

"Joe had come armed with two cameras and three lenses (17-35, 70-200 and 300), plus one flash and a 12-inch laptop."

Skipping a standard zoom is also a big no-no in my book. For any event, any gig.

The bottom line is, if I were in his shoe, I wold focus on what I can do best with what I have.
