K-70 bundled 18-135mm lens KAF3 or KAF4?
Posted By Chuck-B&H

Hello;

Unfortunately Pentax [Ricoh-Imaging] does not designate the lens as either a KAF3 or KAF4 mount model. I asked a floor manager in our store to call a kit up from inventory and he confirmed the lens in the kit he checked had the diaphragm lever which Pentax claims was removed from the KAF3 for the newer F4 version.

[KAF4-Mount] Installed Electromagnetic diaphragm, and eliminated diaphragm lever from KAF3 mount.

I am unaware of an "aperture lock problem" and could not find any service advisories from Pentax concerning it to reference.

According to the link referenced above, "HD" lenses are listed as having the KAF4 mount.

A versatile wide-angle to telephoto zoom for Pentax DSLRs, the HD PENTAX DA 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6 ED DC WR Lens offers a 24.5-130mm-equivalent focal length to benefit working in a wide variety of shooting situations. One extra-low dispersion glass element and three aspherical elements have been incorporated within the optical design to minimize chromatic aberrations and distortion throughout the zoom range and an HD (High-Definition) coating has been applied to maintain light transmission and reduce surface reflections.

The HD Pentax-DA 55-300mm f/4-5.8 ED WR Lens from Pentax is a portrait-length to telephoto zoom lens that provides a 35mm-equivalent focal range of 84.5-460mm. This extensive zoom range is complemented by the inclusion of two extra-low dispersion glass elements, which work to minimize chromatic aberrations and enhance overall image sharpness and clarity. A high-grade multi-layer HD coating has been applied to lens elements to help minimize flare and ghosting for enhanced contrast and, additionally, an SP Protect coating has also been applied to the front lens element to effectively protect it from dirt, oil, and finger prints.


Hope this helps.

Hello;

We appreciate your business.

I cannot set up a quote for you without your billing and shipping information. A past order number will give me that.

Ultimately, you will have to call us to finalize as once priced you will not be able to check out online [or by using the PF portal link]. It may be faster for you to call and place the order. I'd be happy to set it up for you but without your details I cannot.

Hello;

Our owner was concerned that customers would purchase Open Box product thinking it was "New" so he instructed us to showcase and offer OB products in our Used Department's web selection.

As an example: Canon EOS Rebel T5 DSLR Camera with 18-55mm Lens

Is listed as an Open Box but does include a Canon USA warranty.

Hiking backpack?

Hello;

Like you, I found packs that had some of your features but not all. Here are a few that caught my eye:

You no longer need to remove your pack to get items with the gray and black Mt. Pickett 18 Backpack from PAXIS. This bag features ARC Swing Technology, a unique system that swings a shuttle pod right to the front of the wearer. Just tug on the adjustable release to initiate this action. After you've grabbed your gear, simply swing the shuttle pod back in place and continue on your way. It carries up to 5 pounds and has an exterior mesh pocket, interior zippered pocket and built-in wallet.

Say goodbye to airport checkpoint hassles with the classic black Club Bag Flight-Smart Tech Backpack and Bento Box Bundle from Gruv Gear. This convenient package provides the comfortable, versatile backpack along with full-length and half-length Bento Box Mini Cases that slide right inside it. A gem for travelers, this kit will allow you to hold all sorts of gear and personal items and enjoy quick, easy access to everything.

Hello;

Sorry, I checked with our buyer and we have no confirmed delivery date from Logan Electric. We do have others that are in stock, please take a look at B&H # PO810LUW.

Not sure what image quality you are after, but even a low end scanner will produce a much better image file than a DSLR. For the price, this will yield excellent results. B&H # EPPV600

Pentax DA 55-300/4.5-6.3 ED WM PLM WR RE Compatibility
Posted By Chuck-B&H

Hello,

Thanks for the feedback, I'll will have our answer changed to reduce any confusion.

Per us.ricoh-imaging.com, the weather-resistant HD PENTAX-DA 55-300mm F4.5-6.3ED PLM WR RE telephoto zoom lens is designed for use with PENTAX K-mount digital single-lens reflex (SLR) cameras.

The new electromagnetic diaphragm control system designed for quiet sound operation during movie recording when mounted on the new PENTAX K-70 digital SLR camera body.

Ricoh/Pentax adds: This lens features a KAF4 lens mount compatible with an electromagnetic diaphragm control system. In order to use this lens, the camera’s firmware must be upgraded to the latest version (except for the PENTAX K-70). If this lens is mounted on a camera without proper firmware upgrade, its diaphragm control mechanism becomes inactive, making it impossible to obtain correct exposure.

Cameras compatible with this system: PENTAX K-70, K-1, K-3 II, K-S2 and K-S1

I called Ricoh Support and they said if the lens is used on other/older bodies, full auto exposure may not work accurately [the reps words to myself]. He added they are unaware of issues with the lens used in manual mode or aperture priority.

Hello,

No, the 20mm 1.3X is for the older Canon 1D cameras. The swabs go across the sensor long ways so B&H # VISA5S16 is the correct item.

Hello,

As I noted in my previous post, Pentax increased MAP for the K-1 after our catalogs were printed. We also have the Build a Bundle option on our web site but do not include the grip which I have brought to the attention of our buyer. Adorama is selling the K-1 for MAP.

Please Email me what you would like to purchase and I will see what I can put together for you. Please be aware this type of order cannot be placed through the forum's portal link and will not get credit for the purchase.

Hello;

Pentax just raised MAP but I can honor the price if you want to purchase. You cannot make the purchase via the forum link at the discounted price. You can use the forum portal and Email me the order number and I will have the price refunded, in this way the site will get the credit for the sale. Please let me know what you would like to do.
