You get the same result as cropping except that it only tries to focus on the middle.

If there is only one available then I don't have any use for it.

It takes two of these to make Comet Binoculars.

What's the Fastest Lens You Own?

My FA-50 1.4 is fast enough for at that length and is not in line for upgrade. I feel the same way about the FA-100 2.8 Macro.

I'm looking for a faster body so all my lenses are faster with an extra bonus of being as wide as they were back when film was all the rage.

This is great news for me as I intend to buy a used K-1 and my budget is $1,000 for one in decent condition.
I'm looking forward to exploring wide angle photography.

My FA 100mm f/2.8 lives on my K-5. If I shot in the rain I might upgrade. My two cents.

I want the K-1 Mark 2 to be good enough that many upgrade to it so I can buy a used K-1 at a reasonable price. That's been my plan now for almost five years and though I wasn't expecting it to be this year I'm hopeful. My K-5 has been a good camera and still is but I want the full effect of my wider lenses without the limitations of film.

I hope not. With better auto focus I expect a stronger focus motor and a coffee grinder attachment.

The golf club bag idea sounds like a good one and they are a dime a dozen at thrift stores. You might also consider an Army issue duffle bag if waterproofing is a consideration.

The Czech Republic is a progressive place and gay soldiers are not unheard of. Anyway, the last time I was over there I went out with one so you might say that I back dated a government Czech.

OK, I'm going to my room now . . .

As it happens I have both the box and the insert. I had no idea that it was particularly unusual or rare. Is there a guide for adding a review to the database? The stock number is likely either 37352 which is handwritten on the end of the box or possibly 06596.

---------- Post added 7th Jan 2018 at 01:56 ----------


Yes it uses the camera batteries in an external holder.

I have one. The theory is that extreme cold weather might be a problem for batteries. Hard to believe that someone sold one for EUR55 plus shipping.
