Anyone tried recently to view camera/lens information on the “Pentax uk Ltd” web site, you now have to have a user name plus password to view such information. So closed shop, to the general public.

Very strange for a suppliers site, maybe they no longer want to sell their products ?.

Take care.

I got the user name and password page, but when I clicked cancel I had no problem, and could access the site normally.

Working fine for me, using Opera.

I get it on Firefox and IE, and on both computers, a pop-up window demanding a login (even though pop-ups are disabled). If you press cancel it goes away and the site is accessible as normal.

Login pop ups are an exception of course or else you would have problems accessing sites that requires them.

Many thanks all, for your input.

Just tried this morning, I can get into the lens section, which is what I wanted,so ok there, but if I click to view camera information, I get the login box, if I close that the whole site freezes.

So looks as if it doesn’t like my service provider.

Again many thanks.

Just done the same for me. However if I use the Cancel button on the login box, not close it, I can use the camera section as normal.

The pop up for user login is probably an error in the script, I got it too trying to look at bodies, no problem with lenses.

I'm sure whoever looks after the website will be in the process of putting it right, while their at it they may like to update that picture showing loads of unavailable lenses

Close/Cancel, same thing, just a different word.

So yes the same as everyone else, thank you.
But not a helpful comment.

Take care.

Works fine for me on Safari, no pop-ups or log in requests, the home page appears and I can navigate all the pages normally.

No login boxes on Chrome via TalkTalk on Vista from here, just straight to the information. An odd one. Try clearing your cookies for that site?
