Thread: Pentax Forum - Shinjuku, Tokyo

  1. #1

    Default Pentax Forum - Shinjuku, Tokyo

    I happened to be in Shinjuku last dec and managed to find time to visit Pentax Forum over there. Just thought that these pictures may be interesting for Pentax fans/users. Pardon me for some blur images as my camera still isn't SR yet.

    The BIG label...

    The LONG one...

    The MANY lenses...

    The OLD one...

    The TRANSPARENT one...


    If you happened to have time to go Shinjuku in Tokyo. It is a good chance to drop by Pentax Forum to get those Pentax stuffs. I bought myself the original Pentax sensor cleaning kit @4000yen, M42-to-K adapter @1000yen. Do the conversion yourself and you will realise that they are cheap!

    cheerss...

    Is the Pentax cleaning kit O-ICK1? Doesn't seem to be selling outside Japan. What does it include?

    Yes, the cleaning kit I bought is the O-ICK1. A transparent box packaging with the orange tip rubber stick in it. Together with it is 10sheet of special 'paper' that stick the dust.

    The Pentax staff at the forum is very attentive and helpful. He explained to me how the cleaning kit work and demo to me with their sample kit. The orange rubbery tip is supposed to stick up the stubborn dust on your sensor. Then you 'transfer' this dust over to the special 'paper'. It is designed in such a way that the polyurethane rubber won't damage the low-pass filter surface of the sensor. Pretty good!..

    The kit run out when the 'paper' finish. Actually 10sheet is enough for long usage if you use it carefully.

    I am not sure if they have it in Pentax Forum. But I believe that it shouldn't be a problem to find this in Japan if you are there. I recalled I read somewhere before that the 1.7x AF telecon is still in production so as to support the use of manual lense on their dSLR bodies.

    Sorry, I forgot how much exactly it cost in yen. I thought it was roughly near to sgd1.7k. I was there more than a month ago before Singapore has any of it yet. There could be some rebate or something which I wasn't sure. They are all in japanese wording.

    Singapore probably has cheaper pricing than them now since we also have the stock now.

    The interesting thing is k10d has generated a lot of interest in their home domestic market. Everyone who walked into the electronic store just want to have their hand on the k10d. They have big market share and Pentax is not a peanut brand in Japan lor...

    Bro, can grab one of the cleaning kits if it's not too much trouble. I will settle with you when you return.

    Now let me guess, going direct to get the K10D Grand Prix Special Edition and DA* lenses?

    Definitely getting at least a limited lens.
    Depending on budget/release/needs, maybe a DA*.
    Grandprix damn tempting (fengwei's fault), but dunno can clear 'customs' (aka wife) or not.

    If you want to buy a limited lens, check out MapCamera. Yodobashi, Bic Camera and MapCamera are all found on the west side of Shinjuku.

    Hi Alan,
    If not that much trouble, can tompang you buy one also?

    BTW, are Pentax lenses cheapest back in Japan? How much cheaper are they? I understand the japanese ebay does not support international buyers readily ?
