    Hi Alex, First, thanks for all your hard work and service to our country! Second, I would love to see a Blog post or article kinda like "What's in your Bag." i.e the gear you have, and what you choose for what situations, etc. I think it would help the Pentax community to see someone who is actually deploying the gear professionally; give everyone examples of how Pentax gear can be chosen and implemented to accomplish various missions, etc.

    I'm going to be working on a video like this as soon as I get my system back where I want it. I can already tell you that your use of the 16-50 SDM has influenced me to go that way, I was 50/50 considering the other choices and issues/non-issues surrounding this lens.

    Anyways, thanks again, stay safe out there!

    Hi Alex,
    I recently purchased the FA 31 1.8 and haven't been really too impressed with it. I noticed that you have worked with the FA 31 and the Sigma 18-35. I am considering sending the 31 back for the Sigma 18-35 and am up in the air about making the switch. Could you let me know your thoughts? Thanks!

    Hey Alex. I see you are in Fort Bragg now. I was down that way last February to pick up a partial load. It was some surplus jet fuel tanks some guy up my way bought to use for hauling diesel fuel to off road equipment used in logging in my area. Check out the photo I took at the base property disbursement center after loading here:

    Recently noticed that you're now in Fort Bragg. I remember you mentioned it to me a while back. I was an orphan in China but I've spent most of my life in Raleigh. Welcome to North Carolina! I wouldn't be surprised if I end up in the Fayetteville area sometime. I'm also a 5k runner and I recently started running again after an injury that stopped me from running since August 2013. I've read about a lot of runs out there and I'd love to see a fellow Pentaxian out there!

    Fellow North Carolinian,

    Firstly I'm sorry I missed your post about a brief visit to Scotland. I live in Argyll on the West Coast and would have been more than happy to lend you my house, but your Scotland Album shows you managed to get around quite a bit without my assistance. But the reason I'm messaging you is that there's a deal on the DA 560 that brings it down to 3870 with the Sigma at 3765. The sigma is tried and tested but WR is appealing in the West of Scotland, and I guess you wouldn't covering the Sigma with sand and washing it in an Afghan shower block. I've heard that the Pentax 1.4 TC works well with the Sigma 500 4.5 with a slight adjustment to exposure, and I assume that Pentax made their 1.4x TC as compatible as possible

    So, in summary, would you have any pointers which way o go forward?

    Finally if you're ever back in Scotland please let me know and I'll see what I can do about getting you to the best photo locations I know of in these parts.

    All the best

    Just read your story of the lost camerabag on PetaPixel, and have to tell you it's an amazing story. The best is the end of it, that you got your bag back and could continue with your excelent work!
    Keep on! (Because i got some good inspiration from your postings....)

    You could consider the Philippines for a holiday someday.

    Lots to do and see. Incredible diving and even snorkeling. I was alone on a reef except for my guide and could see hundreds and hundreds of fish at every turn. Hard corals, soft corals, lionfish, sea snakes. That was just with a snorkel only about 10 miles from the Pentax factory!

    Elsewhere (Coron) I did my deep dive narc test in the bottom of a sunken upright WW2 freighter, 120' down, looking at the rectangular blue patches of light that were the freight openings 50' above me. The Philippines is beautiful.

    forgive me i deleted all Pm as a matter of fairness to all.

    but I saw that you would like to compare everything in bulk.

    Adam has removed my post because he wanted to check my IP address.
    now will be released.
    If you want I can provide copies of identity documents.
