I was quite impressed with the booth of Pentax in the IT show.. they are making people to hear them.. and the pretty gals.... wow... heading down again tomolo to buy Laptop.. will be there to take some pics of the gals too if possible.. anyone had already got some pic of them???;p

I must said that Shriro did a pretty good job at this show.. with I think Max Photo..... seem like they are putting efforts into this brand now.. Hopefully the support in terms of sales and after sales will improved along the way... then maybe Pentax price here, especially the availability will be better.....Too bad there isn't any Lens Promo at the show ... but i saw the 10-17... look good... and the 14mm...:eek: ....LBA...

So.. if any of you had the photo please share... i'll post if i had them....

cheers....

for you my friend... i asked a rep from Shriro (friendly.. and she'll contact me when the price is made available, got her contact too).. for the 10-17 to test.. and i did some quick test.. and i'm impressed with the quality of the images.. its cool.. i think Fengwei will sure get it when its first made available..

Did not do a proper setting, no flash used, and only ISO400.. Shoot in RAW...

Thanks KK for posting the info and samples. They look really nice. Pity that I couldn't go to the Show this time, got a NO NO answer (to go for the show) from my wife already :(

Hope the launch price for the 10-17 lens would be near 800 mark ;p

besides the Print Voucher, bag and the SD card, did you managed to get any other freebies? BTW is the SD card a high speed one?

I was at the Pentax booth yesterday looking at their DSLR(cannot remember which one), and I over heard a salesman saying;

".... You buy a telescope lens and fix it on the camera ...."

I doubt so.. but you get get a third-party grips which was made in Korea.. its not battery pack, but just vertical grips w Remote. Me and Kohweeloon had that.. I like it pretty much..
