As a guy using 2 of the Laowa macro lenses (15mm Wide Angle Macro and 25mm 2.5x-5x Ultra Macro) will be very curious about this lens.

Thomas Shahan has a pre-production copy of Laowa 100mm 2:1 and he posted a sample photo. So looks like it'll come eventually.

Desired price range $1100-$1500.
Preferably in very good condition and has all the parts (ex: tripod leg)
Likely US sellers only since I think international shipping will be too much.

Actually did see a person with a Pentax during my vacation to Chicago last week. Couldn't see what it was (It was white & black Storm Trooper color so not the K-1).

Any Chicago Pentaxians on here? Planning to go see downtown fireworks tomorrow night. Thinking of going around Buckingham Fountain area. How badly does it get crowded in that area?

Longer Telephoto Lens for the K-1

Backpacks with top entry option is handy for long lenses. I have an Incase Pro DSLR backpack that fit the 150-450 attached to my K-1 when I rented that lens. Lowepro Protactic Bags and Manfrotto (forgot the exact model name) also have top entry would probably be good. The latter 2 might have a slight edge since they have waist straps.

Selling both because I upgraded to Pentax DFA version for both.


SMC DA 50mm f1.8 ($65)

Great budget prime lens. Will vignette some on K-1 or K-1 II as it is an APS-C lens, but is still usable.

Some dust on exterior, but in good to excellent condition with minimal wear. Lost the original lens cap at a convention so it has a 3rd party lens cap with strap. Comes with the original box.

Shipping US only. Price includes shipping.

Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 Di LD (IF) Macro AF Lens for Pentax AF ($350) (SOLD)

Great lens if you're looking for a telephoto zoom on a budget.

Note: Lens was serviced and fixed last year after it fell out of my bag. Because of the fall, there is a small scratch near the outer edge of the front lens element (UV filter that was on it took most of the cosmetic damage), but have not seen it effecting the image nor show up when I've used it after it got fixed. Other wise it's in good condition.

Comes with the original box and carrying case.

My local one unfortunately doesn't do any repair or cleaning service. I think the closest one that's trustworthy is Wolfe's Camera.
Might take a drive.

Sounds like this whole process with Precision is a pain. And here I was thinking of sending in my K-1 to Precision for sensor cleaning & general maintenance early next year. I'm not so sure now.

I have it. It's an interesting lens, but it is very challenging to use due to the super narrow depth of field and how much light you need. When you overcome the challenges, its rewarding. Would only recommend using f2.8-f5.6 for light and sharpness. f8 and beyond starts to get diffraction and lose sharpness.
Mantis photo is a 5 shot stack (handheld) with a Cactus RF60 and a DIY diffuser.
Shrimp eggs is single shot also with a Cactus RF60. Eggs are maybe a mm or less in size.

Itís unfortunate. I ended up pledging, but guess it ended in vain.
Wonder how much the Godox announcement effected this.

Never the less Iíll continue to use my V6/V6II and Rf60.

I upgraded from a K-r to K-1 because I thought the full frame would be better for low light and Iíd say it was a good choice. The dynamic range was a lot better than I expected which would be a plus for landscapes. Also felt the price for whatís it capable of was very good.
