    Hi Sandy,

    I really appreciate your activity you are doing as moderator. I was moderating another Pentax forum in our country for years and I know how much effort is needed.

    I just want to comment my remark today. I knew that there was a thread about the new D FA* 85/1,4. Despite of this I prepared a brief survey of official infos they to be mentioned in the first place of some thread. The current thread was full of speculations and also unofficial informations about this lens. Now the official links are somehow hidden ...

    When I was moderating my forum - once the new lens was released, I established a new thread starting with official informations and all the discussion continued there. In my opinion this helps new readers ... but it is just my suggestion ;-)

    Best, J.

    Hello Sandy, beachgardener here, how goes it? What A3 printer do you have? I've been thinking about getting one.

    Does the 50mm 1.4 DFA focus more accurately than the Sigma 35mm? I have the Sigma and like it but its focus is a little too unreliable. Any advice would be appreciated.

    I really need you to give a PP class. IŽd like being able to achieve adequate and consistent sharpness and colors as I see in your pictures.

    About Me
    I've been into photography since my teens. K-mount all the way.

    I started with a Ricoh KR-10, then a Pentax P30T during the family years.

    I finally got a K10D in 2008 and the floodgates opened.
    Trail running, rock climbing, archery. Knife making. Wine, women and song.
