I used this B

From amazon.fr

I cut the pieces on paper then from the neoprene. You can remove about 1 cm to let it stay in place with elasticity. (Care to not remove too much for the part behind the tripod mount)

To sew the edges of each part I followed this video














Youtu.be



but with a smaller pitch (~2mm). I'm totally noob at sewing machine so I tried on a small piece first. I had to start really slowly but I have a low cost machine.

Pentax binoculars pricing in EU

Was looking for some mid-level binoculars recently. My first thought was to support Pentax/Ricoh and chose this brand as they have good products. Looking at B&H store my choice was the 9x32 AD WP model, sell at $270 in the US. Then I tried to find an EU reseller and only found the ricoh imaging shop were you can get it for 399 :(.
I asked the Pentax store in Paris and they gave me the same price...

You can have two pricing for EU and NA but seriously 270$ vs 399 ? I'll never buy something at twice its NA price without thinking i have been cheated.

Just got an used DA560, I tried to do an homemade lenscoat for him with some 2mm closed cell camo neoprene found on amazon. It's not finished yet but almost. I still have to add scratches for removable parts, cover the tripod mount and to do something better for buttons access.

Street prices of Pentax lenses are going crazy in France.

DA* 55/1.4 644€ --> 849€
DA 100WR 473€ --> 599€
DA* 300/4 1009€ --> 1299€
DA 560/5.6 4869€ --> 5499€
FA Ltd 77/1.8 836€ --> 1049€

Even more surprising
DA* 50-135 929€ --> 1199€

Some people, including me were still buying Pentax in France. Is Ricoh asking us to stop ?

I walked to a shop to buy an used DA*55/1.4 for my K1 and found a second hand DFA15-30/2.8, 3 weeks from new and with 1 year of warranty. I don't have a 55 yet.

My first tries with the 15-30 this morning:

The moon was bright last night, nice time to get the 560 out of its bag. Should have tried K1+PixelShift.

K5IIs + DA560

The content of this special site should make those thinking Ricoh does not share any info reconsider. I don't see a lot of firms giving as much as Ricoh does in the K-1, special site.

It is not clear if the focus scale windows have been replaced by a screen or not but with a real s/n on this lens it could be a final design with e-ink. This could add something in the name.

That would for anyone, 3 stops over a FF for an APS-C almost the same generation. You shouldn't bet on that.

DFA* 70-200 is a DC motor lens.
DFA 15-30 and 24-70 are using Tamron USD motor.
But the fact that the name don't tell much is valid ;)

I don't see any difference between what you mostly call for and the current Pentax strategy. The new lenses are motorized (DC and development of PLM). The only issue is the pace for the new offer building. On this subject I feel Ricoh did the right thing to by updating its lens production line and its quality control (reason for DFA*70-200 delay), updating the mount for electronic aperture and developing PLM. I hope to see good primes in 2017 and that those choices will enable Pentax to keep offering new lenses at a better pace.

If they dropped production of "old" screwdriven FA limited they would have lost a lot of k1 sales and probably not be more able to deliver new lenses that was at design stage anyway.

I don't see how K1 or any recent lens is "one foot in the past".
- OVF is not a past thing and a Pentax with an EVF would not be regarded as a big issue
- mecanical aperture coupling was kind of a past thing but is still the standard for all but 1 lens so no way they could remove it any time soon
- screw drive AF almost the same remark applies

We are open to better connectivity, touch screen, joystick, new af module, better video support, ...
A mirrorless 645FF with a new mount, smaller lenses and a good adapter for existing lenses would not be rejected

No I don't see how we are in the past and how this is a limitation for Pentax but I'm french so supposed to be the reference in conservatism according to your view ;)
