I am BarrieKM from Elgin Il and Although, I have been a Pentax user since the 10D came out, I haven't been involved in the forums except for occasional browsing. When Looking at the 77mm limited in buy and sell I was perplexed by MIJ - what does this mean? I have a sever case of lens collecting.

Made in Japan. All 77mm's produced recently don't bear this text and are therefore seen by some as less desirable, despite being the same product optically and mechanically.

Welcome from Dundee! If you ever want to try some of my lenses let me know. We've got a few users in the area and a chicago area section here.
Chicago Pentaxians -

If the weather is ever clear and sunny this winter it's good to go to the Fox and see if there are any unusual ducks visiting. There are a couple spots in Elgin where you'll find a good selection.

thank you. It's good to hear that there is somebody else in the area shooting Pentax.
