I was on a job a few Sunday's back, shooting a Mad Hatters Tea Party!?, when a fella walked in with a K110 over his shoulder. We had a few mins chatting then he said his now ex wife had got the good camera, a canikon. Thats the last thing I heard him say

One final one, was on a coach trip last year that started in Barcelona.One other member of the party had a K5 also, but he did not bring it with him While we were in Carcasonne I lost my lens cap. The next day the tour guide held it up and asked whose it was. I claimed it back and she pointed out who had found it. Upon thanking them I found out that her father owned a Pentax.

I actually saw someone with a K-X while on the open top bus at St Peters in Rome, but they were keeping to themselves.

I believe we were somewhere near here at the time.

When I was in vegas I was setting up my KX on the tripod to get some shots under the Vegas sign when a real friendly guy with a 645D came up to me and offered to take a few shots for me.

Happily I agreed and got some nice shots as a result, he wasn't after anything just a friendly Pentax user, the complete opposite of this was the young lady also offering to take photos and then charging people for the service! Crazy.
