It's easier to make photographs out of snapshots with 36 megapickles.

Rumor: Pentax FF new Limited lenses coming soon?

It seems genuine to you because you want it to be true, maybe? As for his "personal investment", I know plenty of people who make stuff up for the attention. Here we are talking about what he wrote and who knows where else he's being quoted.
I'm not fully caught up on the FF talk but is there any credible source stating the new lenses are indeed FF or is this all based on the misquoted FF camera rumors?

I never did nor have plans to do very large prints so up until a few weeks ago, even the k100d was good enough for me. Now got a k5 and I'm sure I'll be just fine. Once the FF comes out, I'll jump on the k3 train and be set for years and years.

Go with the lens. You can flip it for $130, get a flu card, and have some coffee money left over.

DA 50mm F1.8 and DA 55 F1.4, which one is better?

The f/1.8 has 97.4% of what the f/1.4 can give you and only costs $130. However, since you said money isn't an issue, why not go for the da f/1.4?

Why Pentax?

Got the k100d cause it was a bit cheaper than the canikon counterparts plus the idea of cheap used glass was very appealing. Got it, loved the ergonomics, bought many lenses and have stuck with it. Just got a K5 for the same reasons.

LBA sucks!
Just a day after getting a great deal on a tamron 17-50, I decided to put in a low ball offer on a sigma 10-20, fully expecting to be turned down.
Well, damn, that didn't work out well. :hmm:

FA 50 1.4 and the DA 50 1.8. Is there any focal length difference?

Both will work the same on a crop sensor camera but taking a lens made for APSC and using it on FF will give you a round image with black borders.

Focal length is a physical attribute of the lens, isn't it? Therefore 50mm=50mm.

Seating position was an issue. It felt fairly high. The choice was between an Abarth, a Cooper S and the Fiesta ST. In the end I somehow ended up deciding on the...Mazda MX-5. :confused:

Industar50/2
PZO amar 105/4.5
PZO mikar 55/4.5
Kind of screwed the pooch on the last 2. Had no idea they needed bellows or helicoid to properly focus. Thankfully the 55mm focuses if used with a hollowed out teleconverter. The 105 will need a bit more improvising.

My condolences.
I have a Belgian Malinois who'll be turning 9 this december. His hips are already giving him problems and just this morning he seemed to have strained his right hind leg. He's been a pain in our backside since day one but we love him dearly.
