Your latest de-acquisition

I will be sorry, that's for sure ! But truth is i never use them anymore.

The 75-150 was a very good lens especially on the K5, but i don't reconnect with it since the K1.

The K28/3.5 does produce absolutely beautiful colors and is really quite sharp (even against the DFA !), it's really an amazing lens, for sure.

Still, i do prefer to work with the DFA 24-70 or the DA*55 or the FA*85, than those 2 manual lenses. Because yes, MF is part of the issue, truth be told.

Customers are more suceptible to pay for goods wich price remain constant over time. Otherwise, we all wait for price to lower before buying, and even then we think "it's old, something new might come up" and we end up never buying it new.

Agreed ! I'm pretty confident the lens will be really good. So far the level of the DFA lenses are way higher than what Pentax did before Ricoh.

Make sure you "push" it enough into the flash hotshoe. Otherwise it's making false contact and doesn't work.

If the DA 55-300PLM was a DFA I would say a lot of people would have buy it.
I think the DFA 70-300 on the road map will sell like hot cake.

I have a 2.8 trio zoom lens, but a light, high quality zoom, would definitely be a perfect fit for me for casual moment when I don't need the triumvirate.

Today "eye-focusing" refers to focusing on the eye of the subject you want to photograph. Completely different concept.

got the Pentax instead ?

---------- Post added 13th Dec 2019 at 09:38 PM ----------

Latest acquisition is the DFA 24-70.

The latest de-acquisition is going to be the DA35/2.4, Panagor 28mm f2 (great lens, prety much underated IMO), and the fungy vivitar 24mm f2 (a bit overrated i think).

DFA 24-70 f2.8 :cool:

Huge beast, but very promizing. All the good things said are true. The weight too unfortunately :eek: . Sometime, you just have no choice really but to use the best tool for the job :lol:

Now the DA 35/2.4, the Panagor 28mm f2, and the vivtar 24mm f2 will have to go ! :)

Full a eBay request with pictures of the lenses with the fungus. If correctly described, eBay will refund you and the seller has to pay for the shipping back. Usually the seller just let you keep the stuff.

the rendering of the big red ... thing picture pretty much indicates that the lens as assembly issue : the lens should'nt be soft like that at all.

Just send it back, get another one from a reputable dealer, like B&H or Adorama.

If you like the way the FA31 (or the DA*55) do render on FF, the FA*85 is really in the same vein. Same style, same kind of rendering.

It's very nice, but a bit heavy. Balance well on the K1. I would'nt spend like 1k$ on it though.

Gear is going to be more expensive in the near future. On the other hand, when you see how small is the gain is with every generation, you are going to hold onto your body and lenses much longer.

congrats ! An amazing lens considering it's age. It does really shine on APS-C even wide open, or @f5.6. Far more than most of the lenses of this era, IMO. And yes, i'm pretty hard on old lenses.

Get a second hand K1 with a low shutter count. You can find some for 1000€ or less.

Pentax 6x7 vs 645 systems Advantages and Disadvantages?
Posted By aurele
Replies: 60
Views: 4,703
the 67 paired with the 105 can produce neg absolutely stunning.

BUT the old 6x7 are camera that need regular use to be OK. And often they sat unused for a time and have either sticky shutter, faulty advancement film system (that allow 9 frames and not 10 per rolls).

The 67II far more recent seems less prone to have those same problems.

IF you find somehow that can CLA completely a 6x7 or 67, this will be a good joy to use. It's absolutely massive system on it's own (2Kg for a 6x7 with 105), but the rendering is still the best there is out there. The 105 alone is already worth it.

Well, if pentax was to fold out, you would still be able to get those k1 for a steal and use them for years and years.



You wouldn't change your wife after 20 years of mariage, well, because we never know, she could pass out ? :lol:

It's very strange question (i know) but it shows you how much i don't understand why you start thinking about changing body and lenses, when you say you have something that satisfy your need, and you like a lot.

Canon will keep selling EF lenses for a decade, slowing the renewal of lenses, renewing bodies, and will slowly fade out EF mount.

I'm not conviced any bit that the future RF body will be lighter, and RF lenses any lighter too. But who cares ?

I would advise you to send the lens back.

BECAUSE :

To repaire the mechanism, you need to dismantle the back of the lens, and check if some gear didn't get displaced.

BUT : if some geat did get broken, you are most likely screw*d as there is no replacement part available (AFAIK).

Make sure that in-body correction for purple fringing, is not activated. Presse "Info" and have a look.

This can slow the camera quite a lot.
