Wooo, Deja Vu !
One of my English classes was right off your left shoulder in that scene.

That is a tough photo to get, as you mentioned, the Quad is usually filled with students during the week and filled with Tourists on weekends.

I was there last April, 2018, and took a few snapshots. Two of shots from that day I used in my 2019 Calendar. That day I was shooting with the K-1, so the Monument Valley photos are digital. When on vacation I take a Pentax film camera and a Pentax digital camera, and one set of lenses to use on both cameras. I shoot only film one day, then only digital the next day, and alternate back & forth till the end of the vacation or until I run out of film :o

I posted the Monument Valley Calendar photos on the in the "Post your K-1 pictures" thread (if you care to have a peek)

Me too, for a few years now.
I just scratched it yesterday ;)

I stumbled across a Pentax 645NII, FA 45-85mm & FA 80-160mm bundle in Japan, at a BIN price not to be ignored.
Combined with the 6% Ebay Bucks offer that day, and free shipping, I could no longer resist.

I also purchased a 645 FA 120mm Macro to slide under the lens hood I already owned (from a failed experiment with FA*85mm hood alternatives).
Also purchased under the 6% Ebay Bucks offer.

And 5 rolls of Ektar 120 film for good measure.

edit 11/6/2108
The Camera and three lenses showed up yesterday. All look near mint :)
Still waiting for the film to arrive.

Black K and AP
Posted By Moe49

I am going to post here side by side photos of my 3 Pentax APs.

Black - unrestored
Chrome - unrestored
Black - restored & repainted, from the same Japanese Seller as the camera in post #1.

You can look at these photos and judge for yourself if you think the repainted Black AP might have been Chrome originally(?)

edit 10/16/2018:
I was just thinking an easy test would be to remove the bottom plate of the repainted Black AP to see if the inside is brass or steel.
A brass bottom plate should be evidence the camera has always been Black.

edit 10/23/2018:
Well, removing the bottom plates off the two black APs proved non-conclusive. Both bottom plates are painted flat black on the inside.
Also, both bottom plates are non-ferrous, not magnetic.

Excellent find !

Yep, that looks like a S2-Super. It has the 1000 marking on the shutter speed dial.
It also has the automatic resetting frame counter.

Is an FA* 200 f/2,8 worth it?

Is the DA*200 Full Frame compatible? K-1 Compatible as the OP owns?

I have the FA*200mm, it is a superb lens used with my K-1, and its bonus feature is an aperture ring which is a must to use with my Pentax Film cameras.
