Voltage tested

I tested the Dine Macro ring light. Similar to what two other friendly members have reported me in PM, the voltage when charged up ranges from 5.6 to 6.2. At burst time, the voltage goes to about 14 to 19. A safe range to be used in my k10D/k100D.

We meet again, hinman...

Did you snag this thing on ebay a while ago?
I have the exact same setup and I love it. Although, this lens far outperforms my macro skills.

I would recommend this lens without hesitation.
Also, the ring flash works perfectly fine on my K10D (if anyone still has doubts about that).

All PM answered. The lens is pending sale to #1 who PM me but not on this thread.

Thanks to an ebay bidding buddy who happens to know me after the bid on this very item 2 months ago. We get acquainted in forum PM after the bid ends in ebay. It is a small world, we bid up in the last minute for this Lester A Dine package. I overbid him by $20.00 and now we meet again. He got even with me as I forget to charge him the paypal charge. And I frequently underestimate the shipping cost by 15%. My pain is someone's luck. Hope the karma always goes back to Pentaxian.

The ebay has made the suckers of us, perhaps more on me. Had I known he was on the bidding history list, I would have avoided the bidding battle. Thank you buddy for contacting me with strong interest in the lens as a complete package!

Complete package is pending sale.

Hin

Wow Hin, this is a great price. If Karma points are awarded, you should get like 25 million or so.

Package is sold and shipped this morning to Canada. All means well ends well. I get my funding to fix my broken refrigerator. By the way, think twice in buying KitchenAid refrigerator, especially the model with doubled steel door.
