I am new here. Just landed in after having been lurking for a while from time to time.
I am Italian, living in Japan since about 20 years. I am researcher, teacher and photographer. I am also Curator of the collection of images and equipment of the late Shoji Otake, who contributed to the development of several Pentax Limited lenses, beside being one of the leading character in photography, TV and media world during from the post-war period until about 10 years ago (not much heard outside Japan, though, as he did not care about it, differently from other JApanese photographers). I myself and our page are available also on Facebook, if interested (Shoji Otake Photography).
I am a Pentax user, of course, but I use also other platforms for work and preference. Cheers to everybody.

Welcome! How is Pentax regarded in Japan by Japanese? I get the impression from other boards globally that we Pentaxians are niche players and that commercially Pentax simply doesn't get much shelf room.

Hello and Welcome to the forum. Shoji Otake Photography sounds interesting I'll have to try using Facebook..... not a site that I like, but I'll give it a shot.
