  • I called Adorama - they issued me a $100 store credit to compensate for the cheaper B&H sale price. So no complaints here - as long as I eventually buy something else I got a very good deal, and I ...
  • Created discussion thread Good Deal on 20-40 Limited at B&H
    Wow -  $595 gets it - that's  $200 off. I just bought it for $695 from Adorama. Looks like I might have to do a bit of horse trading to take advantage of this.

  • JF; good point. I do have the 70 Limited as well, so I've encountered this before. But I mostly use the 70 as a portrait lens, and mostly indoors, so it didn't concern me as much as with a lens I ...
  • Thanks Doug. I hadn't thought about the ability to adjust a circular polarizer that way; perhaps I'll learn to like this design after all.
  • Created discussion thread 20-40 Lens Hood
    Warning to fans; this is a wee bit of a rant.  If that bothers you, just skip this thread. I just unboxed my new 20-40 Limited, and my first impressions are mixed.  It's a beautiful piece of kit ...
  • Wow - you got a deal!  If I converted the currency correctly, your price equates to $571 U.S. dollars - I paid $695 U.S. dollars yesterday for the best deal I could find.  Congrats on the sweet deal!
  • I did purchase a product - did you?  I bought the Limited 20-40 lens for $100 off from Adorama.
  • Very disappointing - the lack of any meaningful U.S. "Black Friday" deals for Pentax gear has me concerned for the future of the brand.
  • Created discussion thread Pentax Black Friday Deals?
    Anyone aware of Black Friday specials on Pentax gear? Hoping to snag a lens or 2 this year, and maybe another flash unit - I have regretted not purchasing on prior Black Friday sale days.  Hoping ...
  • Thanks Soheil!  That's another option I could use that would let me use my K-5.
  • Thanks John!  This solution will work - I had forgotten about the flucard.  Best of luck,
  • Thanks. This will transfer files wirelessly, but that's not what I need. I'm looking for something like the camranger that will work with Pentax. See http://camranger.com/ for an example. I want to ...
  • Is there a wireless remote viewer and controller that will work with my K-5? I find several on the market that work with Canikons, and wireless remote shutters that work with Pentax, but haven't ...
