    Such a wonderful example of how people help each other after a crisis.

    I ordered a black 02 zoom lens for my Pentax Q-S1 last week from a Japanese retailer via eBay. I'd done business with them before. As I was checking out, I was informed that 10 percent of my purchase price (no higher for me) would go toward the tsunami recovery fund in Japan. This is a story that's not going to go away for a long time.

    First post (hi everyone). We lost our house to a fire in 1985. Everything else can be replaced but back then photos were of course film/negatives/slides... they were the only thing we as a family had lost, everything else was easily replaced (thanks to insurance).

    Well done to Ricoh for a difficult but no doubt greatly appreciated effort.
