Pepperberry Farm,

Now you have done it. I have got to get a Pentax A 20 f2.8!! I have been mulling over 20 and 24mm and wide zooms. The widest I have is A 28 f2.8 for my K1 or 18-55 for the APS-C bodies I have (~27mm relative to FF). I don't want too wide so I think I just found my new LBA focus.

Great images!!

JB

thank you... and you're welcome....

a word of warning, however, shop carefully and get as many photos of the lens as you can....

you don't want to buy somebody else's problem....

Pepperberry Farm,

Roger that. For the most part I have vetted well with my purchases. I have a m42 and K version of the 55 f1.8 that are very nice. And M100 f2.8 and A35-105 f3.5 that are nice. I have Sigma, Soligar, Mitakon, and Vivitar in m42 and K mounts that are pretty good.

Thanks,

JB
