Welcome to the third edition of the PENTAXIANS Yearbook. From now on we can say it is a series and no accident! We received more contributions than ever, of overwhelmingly high qual- ity, both technically and artistically. This large number of contributions led us to the point where it’s no longer possible to include all of them in the printed edition. Thankfully, the digital version suffers no such physical or cost limitation, so we have been able to include all contributions online. The digital version also benefits from far wider distribution than the print, with more than 15,000 downloads.
This year, we also celebrate 100 years of Asahi Optical Joint Stock Co. – the mother of our beloved camera brand. So Happy Birthday – this is our gift to you! Thank you all for being part of it and for being such an awesome community of great photographers from all around the world.
