Multi Battery Adapter Kit - Sony NPA-MQZ1K

yes, then for those times and conditions as the K-30 did not have any battery grip this was the ideal solution for me,

it is difficult to find the time and will for that now, because:
1. so for K1 there is an original battery grip,
2. and with one original D-LI90 I make cca.550 ~ 600 photos with chimping (after 3 years of use)
3. I use additionally a replacement battery from ebay with which I can take approx. 400 photos under the same conditions as on the original,
4. I paid it about 15 euros, and it is more normally charged on the original charger D-BC90
5. For now, all this original satisfies my needs and desires, so I no needs to experiment to make up for my shortcomings which I do not currently see with the power supply on K1 . ;)

reminds me of my work from about 6 years ago,Yet the more time has passed, I found the time when I presented this creation of mine mentioned here on the forum: 26-02-2013, unfortunately there are no more original photos that present the battery grip on K30 with the accompanying text
I used a Pentax K30 and wanted a battery grip for it,
there is no original or replacement to buy so I made it myself (I am a master myself),
on ebay i bought a cheap replacement battery grip for Nikon (the model can be seen in the part of the photo) and reworked it for 2 Pentax D-LI109,
the trigger on the battery grip didn't work but I had the battery life of the D-LI109 x2,
i also had the original adapter for AA batteries (eneloop) Pentax D-BH109 AA
but this modified solution was better :o :cool:

i don't have any of them, I used DFA * 70-200 / 2.8 (borrowed as slave equipment), reading reviews I selected for myself short and clear conclusions for 3 lenses (not my words but my brain registered and remembered them):

Pentax-DA * 60-250 / 4 ED [IF] SDM:
-Bokeh, corner sharpness, range and rendering are the perks of the 60-250. None is easy to dismiss either (great range and great sharpness over the whole range and width, changing length / size of body in operation,slow and hesitant AF )


Pentax-D FA 70-210 / 4 ED SDM WR:
- AF speed, center sharpness, weight, internal zooming are the main perks of the 70-210. None of these are easy to dismiss (smaller range, excellent center sharpness, no stretch when changing millimeter and focus, and high AF speed)

Pentax-D FA * 70-200 / 2.8 ED DC AW:
-Bokeh, rendering, AF speed, internal zooming, center sharpness, corner sharpness, large and heavy body, if you want the best but it has its price in many ways (superb sharpness across range and width, fast AF, beautiful bokeh, heavy and large, no stretch when changing millimeter and focus)

Pentax respected all the criteria according to the categorization of its lens, there is no perfect lens for everyone and everywhere

Pentaxians finally have the choice of FF telephoto lens options, cheers!

normhead, you are a professional photographer for me - I'm a total amateur towards you, so this text of yours sounds very humorous / funny to me
maybe I don't understand sarcasm (as does Sheldon Cooper) :o :confused:

I had my wedding photography, I used my K30 as my main tool, and then I borrowed the latest K1 for backup, otherwise I borrowed K3 + DA * 50-135 / 2.8 as a slave, borrowed K1 +15-30 / 2.8 + 70- 200 / 2.8 I used to photograph newlyweds outdoors in the old castle, solo and with godfathers, K30 + DA12-24 / 4 + DA17-70 / 4 + F50 / 1.7 for everything else, after a month I sold all APSC: K30 + DA12-24 / 4 + DA17-70 / 4 + DA55-300 / 4 - 5.8, retained Pentax F28 / 2.8 + F50 / 1.7 + Tokin atxprosv 28-70 / 2.8 and bought that used K1 (only I used it actively before and the rest of the interested people just kept my hand on the counter), I borrowed on my credit card to make up for the amount of money I missed from selling APSC equipment, now I've added more Pentax to the kit FA 80-320 / 4,5-5,6 and ProMaster Spectrum7 19-35 / 4,5-5,6, I enjoy amateur photography like never before in APSC format and I'm not sorry about the money spent (shallow dof and dynamic range at elevated ISOs are my love), I eagerly awaited the DFA70-21 0/4 to replace FA 80-320 / 4,5-5,6 and that's why I'm very curious to read reviews on the DFA70-210 / 4, the replacement will be paid again by borrowing on a bank card because I'm not really sure I will sell the FA 80-320 / 4,5-5,6 more, sold only ProMaster Spectrum7 19-35 / 4,5-5,6, for which I can get approx.80~100 euros in Europe at my house (I am the first owner because I bought a new one in the original packaging and I use it very little)

don't get me wrong, I'm just writing my observation

Bernard thank you very much for your thorough review, you answered all the questions I asked you - it doesn't seem to have been as difficult as you might have guessed,
Pentaxians (and those who want to be) with the help of your text can easily decide which telephoto lens can meet their needs, this comparison of DA * 60-250 / 4 and DFA70-210 / 4 is phenomenal, every honor on the writing and thank you very much

Most photographers - and many non-photographers - are aware of Canon, Nikon ..... at least here in the CRO,Canon and Nikon are the undisputed rulers of scenes in the professional and amateur photo worlds, in the professional: when I appeared with Pentax in a photo studio (K1 + DFA70-200 / 2.8 + 24-70 / 2.8 + Fsmc28 / 2.8) everyone was wondering what I was going to do with it and what it was / how much it cost / what it had to complete / what the hardware support capabilities were, in amateurism: just a question so isn't it CaNikon wtf .... but me and the parties are happy with what Pentax can do (in some cases a little harder than canikon but still successful = eg studio lighting sync worked after a few tries, amateur = where did you buy ~ where to buy it because everywhere is only canikon ), mostly Pentax is an exotic of photo equipment which is rarely bought by professionals (I only know two, but one switched to think fuji x-t3), and amateurs, most of whom canikon is too expensive

whatever the science is, to prove that with the Pentax K1 + DFA70-210 / 4ED SDM WR you can get sharpness across the entire range and the whole frame as with the eg. Nikon D800 + Tamron 70-210 / 4 Di VC USD in the same conditions, of course we're talking for photo enthusiasts who are willing and aware of the trade-offs with regard to the Pentax DFA * 70-200 / 2.8 or NIKKOR 70-200 / 2.8 G ED VR II, the sharper the optically better, the faster and safer the focus, the faster and more reliable focus, either sharper and faster or slower and more hesitant and edgy, I want to take a photo and capture the moment as I imagined my photographic equipment might - I don't want the camera / lens to deprive me of my inability, I'm not interested in the lab they analyze my photo equipment, because i bought it for taking pictures and not analyze- i'm an end user who needs to know how to use it ,Oh my God !!!

I am eagerly waiting for Mr. bdery to present his objective experiences on the DFA70-210 / 4 vs DA * 60-250 / 4 and I will be able to conclude myself whether the new higher-grade Pentax telephoto lens is good for me or I will invest in an apsc remodel lens (I have used for many years purchased not new with Amazan Pentax DA17-70 / 4 without any problems and was pleased,i didn't have any problems with sdm = so-called super dead motor)

slow write / small clipboard / unreliable accompanying auto focus / rebranded lenses / lenses that still lag behind the canikon series of the same series and in focusing speed and optical quality overall / smaller choice and photo bodies and photo lens / poor third party support both in lenses and lighting, please where, then, is Pentax in the photo world of serious players versus canikosony conglomerates, Pentax turns out to be some exotic that few people play with and send on, and is now owned by Ricoh, e.g. it is issued in small doses / quantities, a little better and a little more expensive but far from the leadership in both photographic and lenses-unspecified exotics, it is not clear to me how each time the reviewers would get the wrong copy for comparison with the competition, reading this forum concludes that "everyone praises your horse" ie Pentax lens is good only if the review is by a forum member or "purebred" pentaxianer, some random reviewers always get a bad copy, this Ephotozine review for DFA70-210 / 4 is nice to read but I don't know if yes i believe her completely the same as those who say Tamron original is better than Pentax packing same optical formula, i have been using Pentax photo equipment as an amateur for 13 years i enjoy it and i am satisfied because i can afford it and have never used anything else (except Ricoh KR-10super and 14 years ago some sony dsc h.. with original wide angle and telefoto conversion), at the end where then is the pentax DFA 70-210 / 4 ED SDM WR compared to the canon / nikonon / sony same lens, not for the money but specifically for optical and autofocus quality only

due to yesterday's earthquake (5.5 degrees Richter), he fell and performed all sorts of wreckage around the closet (Tokina atxprosv 28-70 / 2.8 just moved out of place on the shelf), no one can be stronger than fate, others they can only hate it and dislike it, but my 22 year old Pentax FA 80-320 / 4,5-5,6 has recovered mentally and physically and is capable of making a photo like this at a maximum range of 320mm.
not a little crop, approx. 2 meters from the point of focus, without the support from the hand, in a light breeze swinging branches, with new lens hood of 62mm and 25mm deep shade (this seems to me better), so far I have used lens hood of 58mm and depths of 36mm - original there is not

yep, i'm waiting with a lot of desire to read that text, may for example on 1st april, maybe someone even upload your review text 60-250 / 4 vs 70-210 / 4 as a first April joke, connect the cozy with the helpful and the forum members would have something to hyperactively discuss (not knowing if it's an actual review or as a first April joke),
bdery i believe in you that you will make that description and requested review in a short time of a few weeks, cheers :cool:

with this review all interested Pentaxians (and beyond) would be able to choose to buy the desired lens according to the known and presented capabilities of the same :o

I am convinced that I am not speaking solely on my own behalf for this desire ;)

Please be specific about 60-250 / 4 vs 70-210 / 4 such as:
-60-250 / 4 is a * series but 70-210 / 4 is not and this is noticed on the bokeh and body construction?
-60-250 / 4 has slower focus?
-60-250 / 4 does not have a decisive and safe focus like 70-210 / 4?
- sharpness in the center at 70/4 + 130/4 + 200/4 at 60-250 / 4 is?
- sharpness in the center at 70/4 + 130/4 + 200/4 at 70-210 / 4 is?
- sharpness at the edges at 70/4 + 130/4 + 200/4 at 60-250 / 4 is?
- sharpness at the edges at 70/4 + 130/4 + 200/4 at 70-210 / 4 is?
It would be fantastic if you could put photo examples for that matter!
-CA on contrast frames is expressed at 70-210 / 4 more than at 60-250 / 4?
- 70-210 / 4 is easier to carry on a K1 than 60-250 / 4?
- overall optical 70-210 / 4 do not notice that it not * series like 60-250 / 4?
-60-250 / 4 takes precedence over longer range and nicer bokeh and body construction (excluding internal focusing and change of millimeter without stretching)?

how much do i expect 70-210 / 4 is better than 60-250 / 4 so much i expect 70-200 / 2.8 is better than 70-210 / 4 (but that's just my expectations)

I'm aware that this is not a * series like 70-200 / 2.8 but I expect it to be better than 60-250 / 4 because he neither was it intended for FF
(being good at FF, is just its big + as an APSC lens for those willing to compromise on FF usage-who is not for compromise buys DFA 70-200 (210) / 2.8 (4))

I hope you understand what interests me as end user in the new DFA lens and as advanced amateur / enthusiast user

please have courage and be determined :hmm: :o
