Just ran a quick test of the Pentax FA 85/1.4 lens with the Monster adapter on Sony A7R4. Works OK, focus is surprisingly quick, the focusing noise is a bit odd but not scary; initially the adapter (or the camera, I could not tell, it was coming from the front) emitted some very odd and slightly frightening noises, like a small robot dying and whining.. but when I found my glasses and I adjusted the exposure to something more reasonable (it was trying to expose for like 5 seconds or more), the noises stopped and all was good.
I guess I am not going to buy the ROKINON 85mm F1.4 for Sony.. ($370 for the next 4 hours on Amazon). Planning to test more lenses tomorrow.

Item for Sale
PENTAX-M 300mm F4 (GREEN STAR )

Asking Price
350.00 USD

Item Location
OLATHE KS (United States)

Item Description
Selling as it's a bit too heavy for me to carry, especially with my LX, so it just doesn't get used. It's a very nice copy of this lens. Clean and buttery smooth to focus. Very few use marks. Some dust as can be expected. Optically I never found any fault with it. It comes with an old style Pentax snap-in front lens cap and a new after market rear cap. Here are some pics, additional pics linked on the next line below.

Return Policy & Additional Details
I would prefer a local pickup as then the lens can be examined and sale finalized. I abhor dealing with buyer remorse just as much as I don't enjoy going to the Post Office if I can avoid it. The lens is in excellent condition and I see no possible reason for a return. Just contact me before the purchase and I will accommodate all reasonable info and extra photos requests, live video and whatever else might put your mind at ease. If there truly something wrong with the lens, I will take it back.

Would you happen to have a link to that adapter? Does it require another coupled adapter to be K-mount compatible?

Cheers

Item for Sale
Fuji X100S with Luigi Case & Strap, Square Hood, 5 batteries, in Original Box

Asking Price
595.00 USD

Item Location
Kansas (United States)

Item Description
Selling my barely used X100S. Shutter count 2100. The sale includes the camera, original lens cap, original box, original manuals, cables, charger, 3 Fuji batteries, 2 after market batteries, silver square hood kit, silver round hood, and a high quality thumb grip, but not the plastic hot shoe cover (can't find it, $4.99 on Amazon, cheaper on eBay). Also included are a beautiful (and expensive), fitted leather case and strap I purchased from Luigi . The screen has been covered with GGS protective glass since new. The silver top of the camera was covered (by me) with Gaffer tape for the funky look and protection, the tape left a few tiny spots of residue here and there which I can try to remove but I only noticed this after taking the pics of the camera. The UV filter and the weaved strap shown in the pics are not included. Additional pictures available. $595 buys the kit, $20 gets it shipped in CONUS.

** With this leather case on and the thumb grip, this camera feels like an extension of your hand, it's that comfortable to use. I hate to let it go but no time to use, too many kits, too little time.

Disclosure: I also posted this on Dpreview.

(additional photos available)

Would it be safe to say that it doesn't hunt anywhere near as badly as the K-3? I was just taking some "quick and dirty" product shots indoors in so-so lighting and af hunting started to drive me nuts. I want to buy the K3III but your comment gave me pause.

I will absolutely get the K3M3 - it was love at first review for me.
But first I must finish learning how to use my Sony a7r4 kit that I purchased while waiting for the K3M3 :)
