Took the plunge last week and completed my holy trinity with the last silver FA 43. :)

Too bad I've been using the 28-105 only! This lens is amazing!

Whats it worth?

I recently sold my K-5 (11363 shutter count) with the battery grip and a DA 18-135 for $AUD455 off eBay. Whoever bought it got a bargain in my opinion...Probably should have split the item and body, but was looking for a quick sale.

There were over 10 people watching the item, and that was just for the Australian shoppers. There must be a much larger number in the US.

'Rendering' question of FA 43 Limited
Posted By Munki
Replies: 30

Well, I never said being clinical was a bad thing...Mainly because as macro lenses, that's precisely what you want/expect from them. Sometimes the macro lenses can be brutally detailed to the point you need to soften images. I'm sad that I've passed on my DFA 50 and 100 (non-WR version), but no doubt will be getting the WR version some time down the track. I think you've pretty much convinced yourself that you don't need the 43, to be honest. ;) If you ever have an ounce of hesitation, I say wait until you no longer have any before you commit to a purchase.

I've always felt the DFA 50 (and 100) were quite clinical compared to the more artistic nature of the FA limiteds. Maybe that's just me though.

It's interesting to see they're not showing up on the Pentax Australia website either... I just purchased the "last" silver off their eBay store.

I was throwing out some old receipts and found the invoice for my K-5 purchase (got it from Digital Camera Warehouse) and it was about $1100. For the serious bit of technology that is inside the K-1, it's worth every cent (and more in my opinion, but let's not tell them). With this 20% off (on again by the way), it's extremely competitively priced.

15% off lenses this weekend - Pentax Australia

So I tried the link for the 15% off yesterday, and surprisingly, it worked for the DFA 28-105! So this code still appears to be valid for those interested.

I think there was a recent batch of lenses that came in, cause the 28-105 wasn't available a few weeks back.

I'm going to be honest, I haven't fully opened the box to check all the other contents...I literally took the camera and battery out only and have left the other stuff in tact. I should look for that limited hot shoe cover. It looks nice.

Do it. The silver is beautiful and matches the FA limiteds perfectly. Seriously, why is this even a question?!

Thoughts on neck straps

I recently bought an ONA Presidio neck strap as well as an ONA Kyoto wrist strap. I personally prefer wrist straps, but the neck strap is handy when I've got the kids out with me and need to use my hands all of a sudden.

Also purchased the Pentax denim strap just for fun. It's quite cool. Will post up some pics later.

Oh really? So are they're actually not making them any more at the moment? That's interesting to know. I just might buy the one I've been eyeing then!

Is that likely a Pentax thing or B&H just no longer stocking it?

Nevermind. I didn't realise there had been a decline in availability in the silver since 2014!

Hi,

The FA 43 silver product page on your website says that it's no longer available? Is this a permanent thing?

What's the best Pentax prime?

The Sigma 30 f1.4 was a great lens, in my opinion. I only sold it to declutter my ~30mm range of lenses. I took my favourite picture of my son on that lens, and I thought it rendered quite nicely too. Of course, it's no FA 31. :P

I've had different experiences with the FA 31 and 77 on APS-C and FF. The 77 was my favourite on my K-5, but the 31 is my favourite (so far) on the K-1.

Had I known the K-1 was coming when I still had it, I would've definitely kept it! Now I'll never know what it's like on FF!
