Nice to see so many events being run by Ricoh around the Country. Don't remember this much effort being put into sales of other new models. I'm sure they will be a success and this should have a knock on effect on other Pentax models and possibly even third part lens manufacturers. (Sigma please note

Yes, and last time I checked Northern Ireland was also part of the UK too.

I see that the 'retailers across the UK' are looking at a pocket size map.........................................fold it over and you will see that the UK is a lot larger and goes up higher.................................the North does not stop at Manchester, look a little to the left and you will see there is a place called the North East and last time I looked you could get through Hadrian's Wall into Scotland and none of the Irish sea ferry's were cancelled. I suppose that you are going into Wales is something and nobody takes photographs in Cornwall do they.
You might say that I am a little disappointed with the 'retailers across the UK' statement.

As a very happy K5 user and long-time Pentax fan (with lots of old "full frame" lenses) it's a shame that there is nothing happening in Bath........
