New toys arrived for this overgrown child!



New spare ST705 body, few lenses and accessories and all for the reasonable price of 51.

Now I'm looking forward to going out at the park to play a little bit with them and of course a roll of Superia 200.

Nice! What were the included lenses? I can see the 75-150 an dthe one in the back appears to be the 50mm f/1.8, but the one in the middle is hard to make out. 28mm?

The EBC fujinons are real gems.

Yes the main lens is a non EBD 55 mm f1.8 ( I don't know if there is a real difference between the EBD and the non EBD version of this lens), the other is the 28mm f3.5 EBD with square hood and leather case for the hood (plus case), then it came with the zoom which looks intimidating but unfortunately weights a ton...finally the body is near mint.

I am aware that these lenses are very expensive, I wanted to get a 50 mm f1.4 but the prices are they ask are ludicrousy IMO, but what I found more interesting is that the aperture coupling for these lenses looks suspiciously similar to the one adopted by Nikon in their AI mount some years later.

We should put up a "wish list" section or "looking for" section.

I have a really nice chrome ST 705 with 55/1.8 plus an great case/strap that needs a home. I put it up on French eBay a few days ago because ... well, I got too much and trying to thin out some . All the nicer Nikons were traded away at the last few swaps ... next maybe the Olympus stuff.

What do you all think? " I am looking for XXX p0rn "

Sadly my wish list is largely things I can't afford like the K18/3.5, the A*85/1.4 or the K200/2.5... I've slowly acquired most of the cheaper lenses on my wish list, and then some of the more expensive ones (like the K28/3.5 shift or the K30/2.8), now I'm onto ones I might just be able to afford if I am lucky. Just as well the A1200 never comes up...

Same thing here: I ran out of Pentax gear to buy, besides the most expensive stuff like the K or A 50 mm f1.2, so I'm experimenting with new stuff like Praktica and the Fujinon gear.

I must say the 705 is a nice camera, almost as well finished as a Spottie, it remains a mystery to me why in the 80s Fuji dropped the SLR ball, btw their last cameras were pretty bad looking.

On the whole I'm trying to stay with Pentax stuff to keep the GAS under some control. I have a few odd folders and a little bit of Russian stuff but mostly its Pentax. Having said that, many of my favourite shots were with a Lubitel 2 I was given for free...

I'll be re-united with my K2DMD on Weds when I get to Ohio, freshly serviced by Eric, and hopefully my new-to-me K50/1.4 will also be waiting there for me to stick on the front of it...

Best wishes, Kris.

K2DMD + K50mm f1.4 and LX + M50mm F1.4 are my favourite Pentax combos as everyone knows on this board.

I haven't got an M50/1.4 so I usually use my K50/1.2 on my LX. I have several M50/1.7s though which I use when I want something lighter, e.g., MX+M50/1.7. I'm trying to decide what to take to the US next week to pair with the K2 as I like to have two bodies, one loaded with Ektar 100 and one with BW. I feel as though it ought to be the KM or the KX just to keep to a theme! It'll probably end up being the LX though, it is my default choice.

It is becoming more and more obvious to me that the LX is my default choice too!

I've sometimes wondered how many of the A1200 lenses were actually made. A few 600 f4 and 250~600 have appeared for sale, but I've never seen the 1200 on offer.

The only ones I have heard of are the two reviews in the lens database. Never seen any for sale, never met someone who has one. The K1000 is fairly common by comparison!

Just as well really, I doubt I could afford it even if I saw one for sale. Mind you, I'm not certain what I would use it for either! Long teles are not generally my style.

Cheers, Kris.
