I was at SRS on Friday and Chris dropped the word that this year (first for many) Pentax are showing at Focus 2011. I had a mail in this morning from Focus and they will be on stand D9, floorplan here Focus 2011 Floorplan

This is great news for Pentaxians and I'm sure that it will bring not only the faithful, but many new users too. It's great to see the increased exposure of the brand, it deserves to be.
Best regards

Welcome back! Long time no see. It is indeed good that Pentax are making an effort. They've certainly got lots to be proud of.

Excellent news! It's good to see Pentax showing what they can do, and promoting themselves again. Long may they continue

I hope that they give away free bags! If you look at the previous galleries from focus it makes it look like the "Nikon Show"

Only joking it's great to see them back again.

I just asked my shooting buddy if he wants to go to this show. I wouldn't mind some street photography around the NEC too. The canals and pub life is nice around there.

Err, I think you're confusing the NEC and the NIA. The NEC is adjacent to the M42/A45 junction, the NIA is the one next to the canal in Birmingham City centre.

Yes I was. I realised later.






Anyway we decided to do both.

Does anyone knows if there is any official website for tickets and opening?
Will the exhibition only be in Birmingham or will there be a exhibition further to the south at a later point?
Kind regards

If you are planning on going then it's definitely worth booking online first to avoid the queue at the pay booths. My pass arrived in the post last week so that's me sorted They still sting you for the parking though
