A request to all members - Lens database

As many of you know, the 3rd party lens data base was a project that took months of effort from a number of members and the Admin to create. It's looking pretty good.

Pentax Lens Review Database - Main Index

PentaxForums.com Third-Party Pentax Lens Review Database - Main Index

I see all these "lens Club" threads and "off Brand" threads that have a large number of lenses not pictured or reviewed in the 3rd party database or the Takumar data base.

Our hope was to create the best Pentax resource section on the net. If you have a photo of a Pentax lens that is missing, You can attach a picture(s) of your lens to this thread, or put it in the gallery and send Adam or myself a Pm with the link to the lens. We'll update the Pentax section for you and then you can remove the lens photo from your gallery. If it's a 3rd party lens, you can upload a good quality image yourself directly or even create a new listing.

My contact info is:
https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/members/peter-zack.html
And Adam's is here:
https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/members/adam.html

So a simple request. If you have a lens that's not pictured, added or reviewed (or want to add your $0.02), please help update the databases. We are still missing some Pentax lenses as well (see the list below).


Also for all the new members on the Forums, don't forget to keep the site advertising free and help Adam support the site with a small donation.

Pentax lenses requiring a photo (Yeah I know some of these are really rare):

A series
A*1200mm f8 (anyone want to 'lend' me this one and I'll take the pictures myself. I promise to send it right back!

F Series

F*250-600mm f5.6 (I'll take the shots for you on this one too!)

645, 67, M42 Screwmount

See database.

Also have a look in the 'other' categories, the medium format lenses, and the Takumar section. You might own the lenses needed to complete the listing!

That's great. Don't forget to write a review if your lens has none or few reviews attached!

Here's a few better shots of a nicer copy of the 28-50/3.5-4.5 M-Series lens. Also got a few different angles. It's a cute little lens, but I haven't had much chance to try it out. I did take it out for a spin a few days ago but conditions were pretty bad, not good to determine it's abilities.

Also have some nice shots of my 28-235/4 SMC-A Zoom. Here they are. The barrel of this one really extends a lot when you zoom to 135, so I got a shot of that as well.

Tamron Adaptall-2 02B 28 mm f/2.5

I previously sent this image to Adam, but it apparently got lost in the shuffle.

Tamron Adaptall-2 02B 28 mm f/2.5



Note: This is not the same as the Tamron 28mm/2.8 (also in the database).

my additions

Hi Peter,
great effort, I tried before but with no success (at least not comparable to the one you have here now).
Anyway, feel free to use any of these:
