it is official I am wimping out , after growing up in east central Illinois and spending years in Iowa 1979 - 2000, I moved to Kansas and now I think 30 degrees ( F ) is cold

in Illinois and Iowa, 30 degrees in January is a heat wave


so I haven't been out to try my recently acquired SMC Pentax-DA 70mm F2.4 Limited but today, I did take it out for a quick run


[ in the heated Rain Forest Exhibit at the Topeka Zoo and Conservation Center ]

Most of the ones in the market at present don't have the collar.
If you can not get one with a collar you can buy a cheap aftermarket one for a Canon EF 80-200mm zoom and use a piece of bicycle inner tube as a shim. I did this for my Tamron SP 70-210mm lens, which has the same diameter as the 300mm. It works fine.

K-3 with Rokinon 10mm f/2.8
Love the Rok shots! And that is a great hallway! Is that your home? If so I am impressed! That Rokinon 10mm is pretty sharp when used properly. I hope the upcoming DA 11-18 is as sharp. Oops! I referenced a zoom lens in the Prime thread, I hope I am not banished!

Thanks. The home is my Wife's Cousin's. That house is a work of art built by her late uncle. The wood is all local lumber accumulated over several decades. There is oak, cherry, poplar, ash, elm, walnut and others that I can't think of. The main beam down the middle of this room is one continuous piece of cherry. (I referenced a zoom earlier also, so we will both have to go out together )

never really enjoyed the K300 - lots of color fringing, aberrations.. I liked the A400 much better...

I also have an old Tokina zoom (150-500mm) that I am intending to use this spring and figure out its value...
Thanks for the info. Perhaps I will just try to save some funds. I would really like an F*, FA* or DA* 300; I know what I want, just will have to be patient.

and that's always the hard part, especially if there are inferior lenses cluttering up your eBay list...
