Well I just wanna share some exciting news as of recent:
One of my images uploaded to the Pentax Gallery was chosen by Pentax to use in an ad they are putting in the PMA trade magazine!
Very cool I thought! But it got better... payment for usage was in the form of a free lens! So naturally I chose the DA*50-135 f2.8 since I had my eye on it since it was first announced to fill in a much need gap in my autofocus lens range.
I received the lens on Friday night and STILL have yet to get out and put it through some heavy shooting! What's wrong with me! lol
Long live Pentax!

Thanks for the comments guys and gals!
Now, if anyone is going to the PMA would they be so kind as to pick up a copy of the magazine for me? lol
