Pentax SMCP DA* SDM 500mm f/4.5 first sighting!




It's amazing how little this thing weighs!

I wonder how angry I would make Canon users by scribbling their name on the side of the cup instead?

They can sure build them light because the SR is in the body!

I say that it's photoshopped, that's definitely a Canon lens with a Pentax body added on

Does anybody know when this will be released? The cost?
Mid-summer or a Christmas release?

Wait a second,

I think I purchased one of those off fleabay early last month. For a DA* it had massive strange white vignetting...

I'm not quite sure...I'm actually more worried about cost!

Although, supposedly, if you buy the lens between the hours of 2pm-4pm it's half price! (Sonic's 'Happy Hour')

cputeq, if you are mass producing these, i'd definitely pay you 1,000 for this uniquely colourful, waterproof, multi purpose lens.

Holy crap! What size filter does that thing take? Does it come in different colors?

Uber Weiss! It's new! It's German! It's extra-tough!

This is a concept version, right? It certainly lacks a tripod mount. Most necessary with such a lightweight lens :-)

Nice work.

Thanks everyone, I'm glad you enjoyed it

You know, I just realized I missed a comic opportunity -- I could have worked SONIC into a "SuperSonic Drive Motor" branding or something hehe
