Pentax spotted at Bahrain Grand Prix!

Just finished watching the F1 Bahrain GP. As I'm watching the end of the race they show the shot of the photojournalists and I spot a gold DA* emblem and a gold ring on a lens! I looked closer and saw PENTAX on the front of the camera! I always look to see what gear is being used and this is a first for Pentax. I paused it and took these pics with my cell phone. Not the best, but to me the camera looks like a KP and the lens a DA*60-250? The experts will know for sure. And, of course, a shot of the wise gentleman who chose Pentax :)

Surprised this hasn't sold yet. Easily the sharpest zoom from wide open that I've owned with incredible bokeh. A true 'stack of primes'.

It being your main go-to lens also says a lot about its performance and reliability.

All the best with the sale :)

Hey sorry I missed your post. Thank you for your support :)

I agree that the sharpness (especially wide open) and bokeh are what set this lens apart and make it worth owning, even if you already have a FA31 (as was the case with me :lol:). But I'm not shooting Pentax much anymore so figured I'd free up some funds and sell it.

I was lucky enough to find one of these in the original box with papers a while back. These don't come around too often especially in this condition. A rare opportunity here to own one and at a stellar price!

All the best with the sale :)

Item for Sale
Pentax Rear Converter-A 1.4X-L

Asking Price
100.00 USD

Item Location
Chicago (United States)

Item Description
Selling an excellent condition Pentax Rear Converter-A 1.4X-L Teleconverter.

Comes with original front and rear caps and hard case.

This is the Limited of TCs. Body is excellent. Glass is perfect, no scratches, haze or fungus. However, the mount has some play in it. Most likely due it being used often with heavy lenses. I checked and the mount screws are tight. I assume if you remove the mount there's probably a screw or two that just needs to be tightened. It's only the mount that has the play, not the optics or anything else. I didn't mess with it so I left it as is.

Always kept in an air tight container with color indicating silica gel desiccants.

This TC only works with certain lenses. You can find more information here.

Asking $100 plus shipping. Canadian buyers please contact me for a shipping quote if interested.

I like your shots as well. The colors and details, and that creamy bokeh. Very nice. May need to pick up one of these.
