    Default Found Pentax Gold (& Hot Pentax Model) at SITEX 2010

    Went to the SITEX show real early this morning. Thought the show opens at 10 am but it was 11 am instead. Waited around for an hour or so

    Had intended to buy something from Emjay but was not sure what. There were plenty of lenses available, plus flashes, K-r & K-5. The prices seems okay. The new DA35 AL was also available in all 3 colours - black, sliver & gold. This is great I thought. So I requested to have a play with them and the minute I saw the gold one, I was completely sold ! It was simply irrestible. Would have been much nicer if it has the metal body like the limiteds but hey, for the price, it is excellent value. And of course the pic IQ is excellent too.

    Here are some pics from the show. Except pic 1, all were taken with the gold DA35 & K-5. Don't know whether there will be anymore available tomorrow but if interested, should drop in. If interested but don't want to buy, I suggest you say home. Or else, no turning back

    2. Long time no see Pentax model


    3. Putting the K-5 high ISO capability to work

    Agree. Emjay need to keep building on the renewed interest in Pentax DSLR and not let this opportunity to gain wider acceptance pass.....

    Wonder who bought it. Anyway, price quoted is about the same from say SLRR. So no big loss

    Sorry for the OT but now that the new DC motor has gotten a rave review from pentax forums, do you guys still think its advisable to get sdm lenses?

    why not? the DA* range is all SDM

    i don't think they can change the whole line-up from SDM to DC overnight

    I dun think the New DC will take over SDM. Maybe they would come up with a new motor. Who Knows?
