Woot! Four new lenses!!

So happy and just wanted to share my joy! Just picked up four SMC-A lenses!!
  • SMC-A 20/2.8
  • SMC-A 24/2.8
  • SMC-A 28/2.0
  • SMC-A 50/2.8 Macro
Unfortunately I won't get a chance to shoot with them until next week. I am worried that this is another symptom of LBA though!

Congrats! All are excellent performers. A50/2.8 macro is so far my favorite and most used lens

congratulations ! you might also want to consider getting the K55/1.8, K28/3.2 (which is the best 28mm, IMO), K135/2.5. can I smell LBA?

Thanks! I have the Pentax Auto-Bellows A but I've always been using it with a SMC-A 28/2.8 in reverse mount! I recently started investing more into my Pentax gear (some of it was destroyed when my bag was flooded, but I never replaced anything) and I've been itching to try out some macro work. I can't wait!

Pentax-A 20/2.8



I have wanted one of those since I first got my K10D, but there has always been the issue of both price and availability. You luck dog!

If you picked up all 4 of those lenses at once, it had to be an estate auction or someone cleaned out a basement and threw the lot up on craigslist...i can see the ad now...Pentax old film camera with several lenses, 20, 24,28,50, alittle dusty. $100 OBO.
