I saw U2 in concert earlier last week so I have been listening to them repeatedly since.
They put on a great show and if any of you are undecided as to if you want to see them on this tour, get tickets! You will not regret it!

I think you are correct. If the end just has a threaded tube then a T2, Pentax K mount is needed.
This is a manual focus lens though so K-AF is unnecessary. You will put your ZX-50 in MF.
I have a very similar lens, a Five Star 500mm.

If you can, tell us more about the lens and even a picture.
I don't think Quantaray made any screw mount lenses and if this is a auto focus lens with a proper Pentax mount, you need no adaptor. Are you sure the lens has a Pentax mount? Did the lens come with the camera or did you buy it in some other transaction?
I have had a few ZX-50s and ZX-60s in the past. But then I have loved all my Pentax cameras.

It is time to revisit this; at least for me.
After a little more than a year of using the rdio music streaming service, the site was bought and closed by Pandora and I don't think I will recover easily. rdio was really, really interesting in that, it seemed to be the only online music streaming service where you could find and listen to specific music from specific artists; not just build "stations" based on a listening preferences and profile. To me, that becomes just as repetitive and tiresome at times as terrestrial FM radio.
With rdio, I could build libraries and listen to entire albums or artists and specific tracks, make playlists with specific songs. Someone please tell me there are other free sites that offer the same!
I have thousands of records, discs and digital audio files on racks and shelves and harddrives but it was nice once in a while to load up rdio, find an album I do or do not have and just listen to the precise music that I wanted to listen to, now. Not, hey, I want to listen to Pink Floyd, I'll start a Pink Floyd Station and they will play a rotation of artists they deem to be like Pink Floyd or songs that seem to fit some profile I seem to exhibit out habit and tastes. Sites like IHeartRadio, Pandora and iTunes excel in those areas and do have value, but that is not what I am looking for most often.
Does anyone know of an online music streaming service that will let you listen to entire albums of your specific choosing instead of non specific songs and artists of certain genres based on a certain listening habit?

Lennon and McCartney for most of December. The bitter personal criticisms of Ram and Imagine, the bitterness of Plastic Ono Band and the regret found in Wildlife and Band On The Run just for fun.

Opinions and experience with the 18-250mm?
Posted By Nowhere Matt

I have had a DA 18-250 for a few years and I would have to say it quickly became my most used lens. When I go out wanting to take pictures but not certain what I will encounter, I always take the 18-250 because the focal range will satisfy most situations.
At 18mm, my copy has trouble attempting focus; it just hums when I press the shutter so I manually focus often when shooting wide. If I zoom out a bit to even 20mm, it has no issues.
Zoom creep is quite annoying also. I keep one of those rubber wrist bands to help create resistance. I also have a complaint or two about the hood. I was the second owner of my copy but when I first got the lens, you had to be fairly deliberate and get the alignment right when putting on the lens hood. Now, the notches and groove stops are worn and I am more practiced so the hood goes on and unfortunately even comes off accidentally, though not often.
I use to use a Sigma 28-300 has my mutli-purpose lens. That thing is crap compared to the Pentax 18-250. The DA 55-300 gets a lot of love around this site as well but it's range just does not satisfy like the 18-250.
I am feel certain you are going to get the lens. I am also just as certain that you will not regret it.

The M 200 has been sold and there is some interest in the Sun 85-210 but it remains available along with the Quantaray.
I realize that the lenses are not popular but they are still useful for film and even digital bodies.
The listing will be withdrawn at the end of the week. Thank you for looking.
