I think a mirrorless or mirrored camera with a new mount/registration distance would be fine, so long as they produce an affordable adapter that preserves all of the functions currently found in my K mount camera.

My favourite new lens. I managed to snag it for $20 on Kijiji!


1/320s f2.8 iso100

Note that the focus is nailed on his left eye (right on our screen) but it's a bit behind his right eye (left on our screen)

As far as I know there is not. However, the lens does appear in this thread https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/lens-clubs/39866-f-club.html occasionally.

On my K-x, which functions identically in this respect, I use this ALL the time in M mode. It's become routine for me.

I've been into Henry's a few times, and at least in my area they have very little Pentax gear in store. There's a good amount on Henrys online, but the prices are always at least 10-20% higher than some Ebay stores.

I'll have to keep an eye out from now on. I never see any Pentax equipment in stores. Sometimes it's tough being a Canadian Pentaxian =(

I didn't realize Kijiji provided RSS feeds with all the search modifiers! I should be able to figure out something that should work for me.
Thanks for the heads up.

Not sure if anyone is still interested in this. I wanted to see how easy this was... and it looks like it might be too tough for my tastes!
Here's a link to the original IR conversion tutorial: http://2k8.ch/xdeltax-alt/tutirmodding/
Good luck to anyone trying this out!

Thanks! The manual focus has been taking me a bit of getting used to. The small K-x viewfinder, along with my glasses hasn't been helping either!

I have the DA-L version and it's honestly my favourite lens, and the one that gets the most use out of me.

Not a hugely popular 50mm lens I know, but it's the only manual focus lens I have.

K-x Sensor Cleaning on Startup
Posted By Pest
Replies: 5
Views: 1,860
So I find myself flipping the switch quite often to turn my K-x off while not using it, and quickly on again when I need it. With the Sensor Cleaning function on, this means its shaking the sensor quite often. So my questions are:

1. Is this potentially bad for the life of the camera? The sensor, cleaning mechanism, or otherwise.
2. Do you find yourself cycling the power of your cameras often? Or do you just let the camera go into its sleep mode?

Thanks!
