Welcome back Joele... Thanks for all the ++++'s about PENTAX.. I need to get a Sony A 850 with a 16-35mm CZ out of my head... But I would have to say goodbye to the DA*s and more to get it lol...

P.S. Joele there is a nice DA*55 f1.4 for sale in the marketplace.. A very nice prime to go with the 31mm ltd (: welcome back for some Pentax LBA.

yes, and no, it is working well enough, it could always use more work.. I have been working on commercial windows mobile apps lately..

The F*300 was a cutie. One of my all-time favorites. Unfortunately I had to sell it to buy a piece of land on the other side of the fence....where the grass is greener and the equipment is more expensive

Nice to see you back, you can't have your Sigma 17-70mm or 50mm macro back as I still use them but it would be nice if you returned the feedback

The review database says it's 160cm long. That's 63" or 5' 3". Do they make lenses that long?

I had a crew of people helping me to carry the lens any time I had to shoot with it. It gained me a couple of issues in San Diego when I was shooting Navy ships .

Well I'm back from Olympus and Nikon. Got the 'grass is always greener' out of my system and back to Pentax where I feel I belong

D90 is sold, lenses up for sale and I have ordered a k7 and a 31 Ltd.. This time I am only going to buy top end primes as that is all I was ever happy with anyway.. besides I can always borrow off roentarre.

Look forward to getting back into the system, hope some of the older guys are still here and hi to the new people I won't know..

P.S. I am not a moderator anymore on this board, just a normal forum member ;-)
Well, that was quick!

Welcome back and thanks for your help as a moderator in earlier years! Also, you're not just a regular member...you're a Pentaxian
