I just returned a F*300 to KEH that was listed for $729. It includes the tripod foot and is cosmetically near perfect. In my limited testing it seemed to perform as expected, but of course YMMV. Iím not sure itíll be restocked in time but if it is someone should jump on it.

F*300 live view AF problem with KP
Posted By DennisH
Replies: 10
Views: 777
Little update: I tried with better light this morning (still not bright daylight) and got the same result, but I tried my other screw drive lens, D FA 100 macro WR, and it behaves somewhat similarly, so Iím leaning toward this not being a fault.

FYI, the behavior isnít normal bad light hunting, but VERY slowly going to infinity and back to close-up repeatedly without locking on at all. I thought the KP had a pretty strong screw drive motor, but maybe itís struggling.

Definitely will do better tests this weekend.

Thanks for the suggestions. I think bad lighting might be the issue, but Iíll have to continue testing tomorrow.

I did try all AF modes, and I donít have any problems with my 20-40 Limited.

I picked up an F*300 from KEH. Good news is it is just about spotless cosmetically and has the tripod ring.

Bad news is in viewfinder mode af works great, locks on quickly and stays locked. In live view, however, the af just very slowly runs all the way out and all the way in without locking on at all. Occasionally after racking all the way in and out it will quickly lock on, but even that has only happened a couple times.

Does this sound like something simple that KEH might be able to fix, or am I likely looking at a return for a refund? Or am I somehow missing something simple. As far as I can tell Iím locking the manual/AF ring correctly. Firmware is up to date.

I once sat about 25 rows from the field at Fenway (smaller stadium) and used an FA*300. It was good for action, but you might want to also bring the 16-85 for wide angle if you can change it out of the rain.

I bought a used 16-85, and it's giving me odd results. I took several pictures with it, not really paying much attention to my technique, which is generally fine. Most of the results are ok, like this:



On the other hand, I also got several like these:


35mm, f/4.5

85mm, f/5.6, approx. 5 ft away

68mm, f/5.6, approx. 5 ft away

All are converted to jpeg only, except the Ferrari, which I cropped. Is it possible these blurry results are just the product of bad technique, depth of field issues, or does the lens seem to be defective?

The code is lens10.

FYI, itís for select (mostly older) lenses. Thereís an eligible DA*50-135 for $499 before discount.

Bummer about sales tax though.
