It's a multifocal prime lens, akin to the Tri-Elmar in Leica-land ;)

I got one of these here Macros as part of a set of limiteds - picked up the set with any eye toward the 15/4 that was in there, however decided to try it out and it is quite the sweet little lens. I've got a FA35/2 from new that I've enjoyed for a few years now... but may need to find a new home for it in the not too distant future!

I went with the 77 over the 70 recently - but can certainly could see the appeal of the 70 - esp. if one didn’t have both already to choose from. It’s size and snappiness is hard to beat.

Hi Theo - quick scan looks like about $30 USD - will check weights closer when I get home and revise up/down as appropriate.

Drove thru Ballina a few years back and spent a few days inland at Binna Burra - beautiful country there.

I was thiiiiiiiissssss close to buying a K1 just as the pandemic set in to replace my able but ageing K5. I ended up spending a lot of time perseverating over the decision for roughly one year when I could've been out shooting and enjoying the KP I ended up buying in February. Go rent (Lensrentals.com - Rent Photo > Pentax > Cameras) or buy and try and if you don't like it, sell it on in the forum here.

If you've got money burning a hole in your pocket - grab a new or used KP now while the K3III reviews are compiled and the early adopters try them out. Enjoy using it for a year. Decide on a K1 or K3 in a years time.

It’s a standard metric gear - if they sent the af block back after the disassembly, you should be able to purchase the appropriate gear and be back in business for not too much more cost.
