Since you will benear Los Angeles, try to get over to Samys Camera - it's on Fairfax. I've never actually managed to get over there, but I understand that its huge.
I'm not too far from that place and had planed to come there sometime but I saw this.

I didn't realize that there was a Samy's in Pasadena - there are a number of stores in SoCal. The one on Fairfax is the big one that I've heard people talking favorably about.

You could also try Bel Air Camera - it isn't as big as Samys, the prices are usually higher than B&H, but the sales people are knowledgeable. Their stock isn't bad for Pentax equipment (they always have cameras there but they don't carry a full line of lenses). If there's something specific you are interested in, I can always ask if they happen to have any (it's local for me).

I may stop by that Samy's in Fairfax sometime when I have a chance. Not really looking for for something specific, but you know, being pretty new in this photography world, I don't know much, so just love tospend time wandering in a big store, looking at things and...want/wish to have :?like ........ women in shopping malls in the week end :-).

I really appreciatefor your kindwillingness to help though.

You have a nice weekend with more nice keepers.

Ken

H,
alex seems to have been a lurker here for some time as your moniker is seldomly posted.

alex,
i can tell you one thing and that's, that there are plenty of people here that are posting very fine images that they would never had thought possible a year ago.
just remember, the only stupid/dumb question you ask is the one you did not ask...
