I have this one and for its era it is quite good, even on Full frame. But in a 2.8? I don't know of one in K mount. Perhaps the folks who have made a study of compatible lenses can help out here.

Got vaccinated today. Anyone??

The encephalitis one was not too horrible. Had the vaccine for the A and B versions at at least one time in my career. The Typhoid vaccine made me break out in hives over my entire body so if I ever have to take it again for travel, I will be prepared.

But that vaccine just feels terrible, even worse than gamma Globulin. Alternating shoulders every 6 months due to the knots it leaves in your arms. But proven safe and effective by decades of sheep and goat herders and processors getting it. The nerve gas pills seem to be the link to many medical problems in the US Military from the time of the first Gulf war, not the Anthrax vaccines.

Got the Johnson and Johnson single dose this AM. First one at my clinic to receive it. Did a couple pushups against the chair and have felt nothing since. You cannot even see the injection site six hours later and it was chilly going in slowly but not painful at all. The Tetanus jab is worse by a long shot in my opinion. And that one is nothing compared to the Anthrax vaccine series.
Even if you don't really feel it is needed, take it for your family member's sake. Either you like them or they may even like you!

Next Friday I am scheduled for the single dose J and J vaccine. The rest of my immediate family has at least started their vaccination process. And one sister is working where they manufacture the J and J and Moderna versions. They have been running 3 shifts 24/7 365 including holidays since last year.

I sent 14 boxes of books from Maine to Indiana and they all arrived less that 7 days after being mailed. Most after 4 or 5 business days. The mailman here hated me for a few days as we are talking about 400 pounds of books.

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
K-1 with Grip and Samyang 85mm f/1.4

Asking Price
1,400.00 USD

Item Location
Spencer (United States)

Item Description
Get started with a complete Full Frame package!
K-1 original model, excellent condition, Shutter count 6994, Grip and a very nice manual 85mm Samyang f/1.4.
Camera includes Original box, Pentax battery and charger, Peak design connectors (can be removed.)
2 UHS II Lexar 1667x SD cards. (I buy UHS II for faster uploading to my computers, not faster buffer clearing.)
Grip has a Watson aftermarket battery. IF you buy it all at once I will add at least one Full Frame Auto focus lens as a bonus.

Price includes Insured Priority USPS Shipping in the continental US, any shipping outside CONUS will be at actual cost with a 50 USD allowance.

I am buying a new home and cash is always important when you need furniture and money for appraisers and inspectors, otherwise I would never think of selling this camera. As I stink at manual focus, the lens is just better than me.
If you don't want the battery grip and extra battery, take 110 USD off the price and I will keep it till I can afford to replace my K-1 sometime after getting settled into my new home. (Appears to be at the end of June.)

I Love this camera but sometimes you have to let go so you can get where you need to be.

Extras, Watson Battery is inside the grip. Cards are unopened and from B and H.

That is the only time she stays still. On my lap it is back and forth between legs and changing directions, and when not being friendly, chasing my mother's older cat! She is perpetual motion cat when not laying down to nap.
