    Thanks for the advice felix! Im using k-x so hopefully iso is sufficient. Which of these 3 lenses should I bring along for the museum?
    1. smc-m 50mm F1.7
    2. Tammy 17-50mm F2.8
    3. DFA 100mm WR MACRO

    Thanks in advance.

    The Museum is not that big but I am pretty sure the owner will be happy we all jam in there anyway. It has quite pleasant surroundings. If you opt for the Museum, after that can still take some street photos outside and of course, coffee and tea readily available too.

    I suggest in addition to have a dinner and talk as a get together for Pentaxians and have MORE time to socialize. Also, could be an opportunity for Emjay or others to show off their new acquisitions Kr, K5, new lenses etc. Also can get press coverage. Sell t-shirts, maybe even invite Pentax Malaysia to come as well to give talk on what's happening on the other side. We don't need to go to fanciful restaurants. You never know some Japanese Pentaxians may want to join as well. We should also start to collect more info on Pentaxians for other network opportunities.... wow... What you think?

    Good idea. Never thought of engaging Japanese or other international Pentaxians in Singapore. Since this is the biggest Pentaxians group in the world, this is a thought in the right direction. Lets get together for lunch or some things and flesh this out.

    Back to the thread, from the many suggestions, can do a Pentax Marathon starting from 6.45 am to midnight. We had one a few years back. We had a lot of fun shooting macro, street, sunset, and neon lights.

    So, Marathon Outing (macro, street, night scenes, sunset, sunrise), any one?

    no necessary have to stay the whole marathon, can do quarter, half or three quarters marathon. but we may need more than 1 leader this time as it is not fair to expect FW to stay the whole marathon.

    I don't mind the socializing part but it is one thing to come up with a crop of nebulous ideas but they all have to pass the viability test. I know one thing, there ain't no Pentax Malaysia to speak off... to few Pentax users and too dispersed.

    ORCHARD RIVER (oops.. ROAD) - I think the subjects there can be very diverse; except that so many red t-shirts will get us noticed too quickly. This guy tungtong does have very interesting urban street shooting; not sure I dare to go that close from some of his shots.

    How about the Pasir Panjang whole sale market - this is very focused subject. Can have interesting shots, if we can "frame the story"

    East Coast Park - this is a good track all the way to Changi Village - you get landscape, people, sport, and above all lovers!
