Best of luck selling this thing - Quite possibly one of the best portraiture wide-standard zooms I've had the pleasure of working with in this system. (Just sharp enough to get the face at 2.8/50 - Stunning.)

Try new angles. Get down low or stand on something to adjust perspective slightly, it makes for a drastic shift in some scenarios.

Kind of hard to be impressed with the same stats presented again with a higher price tag. That, and the lack of OBF makes for a slight concern to more than those the built in GPS excites.

K-S2 JPG's versus K5ll JPG'S and K50 JPG's

Just my two cents here, but you could always shoot in RAW+JPEG and have the JPEG set to 2MP or something small, just to preview photos before deciding which to convert, if the JPEG quality is of any real concern. (Generally the leap from 90%-95% quality isn't massive, unless you're reallllly peeping, you won't see much degradation)

Anything faster than f2.8 for medium format?

There's a Mamiya 80/1.9 - Not 1.2, but it's pretty fast and has a DOF 'close' to 1.2 on 35mm.

There's also some aerial photography lenses that boast things like f0.75, but they're softer than cotton and aren't really viable for normal images. (There's other such lenses as well, like the 25/1.0 fisheyes made for the Canadian gov't to research the aurora in the north.

I'm sure someones special ordered a 1.2 or 1.4 lens for a MF camera, but it no doubt weighs 20 lbs and is cost prohibitive.

Pentax needs a 105mm Limited lens

I'm willing to bet that meeting went as follows:

Exec 1: "We present to you, the 100mm WR Limited Macro!"

Exec 2: "Get out. We don't do WR limiteds, and already have a macro LTD."

In short: Probably didn't get it due to the time it was released...no other reason.

I'm busy telling myself not to buy it, for fear of my girlfriend stealing it from me due to it's size.

Pretty snazzy deal though, just wish they had more lenses available for purchase.

Any way to adapt Minolta 250mm f5.6 to PK?
Posted By Eulogy

My advice would be sell it. Mirror lenses are finicky as it is, and might not play very well (Softness) with optical adapters.

Either that, or shoot with some film minolta bodies.

Edit: Upon looking at it's potential, maybe get an optical adapter just to see, and if it's not very usable, sell it. Or perhaps mount it to a mirrorless body, if you have one.

You'll need an optical converter to use a minolta mount lens. With an older zoom, it's probably not worth the loss in IQ.

Perhaps fool around with an old Minolta film camera?

Slightly higher than 1/160 might have yielded the best of both worlds. Sharp driver and body, "Motion blurred" wheels and backdrop.

Either way, looks pretty nice.

Lower the ISO, shoot at a higher aperture. Alternatively, do what was previously mentioned and simply lower the exposure time.

Is the aperture ring in the "A" position? If not, switching it to that may help if you haven't enabled shooting with manual aperture lenses (Which you could also do). Usually there's a small button you have to press to switch from "A" to aperture ring based adjustments, by the way.

Destinking old cameras and cases

Set a container of baking soda into a sealed space with the cameras. It will absorb most of the odors, and make it at least manageable. Did this with a very strange smelling Zenit Camera with a Helios 44 I got that smelled of...new car? Almost like someone left them sitting in a box with twenty of those little "Black Ice" trees. Scent was still there after a few days, but reduced greatly. Can't even smell it now, but it's been some time.
