Well said @Texandrews ! I like too your definition : " Different animals" ... for the same reasons FA Limited series
don't need automatic diagphram control (!) or a Sdm motor (!) or the absence of ring aperture values (!) or, certainly, to be superfast (!)...

Welcome to a new coating, welcome to WR ...other aspects aren't in their essence...

[The link to "Xigma20_f1.4" was provocative...]

Who knows what Mr. Jun Hirakawa would think ...😉


From the pictures seems, sadly, that this new 21ltd is bigger than "old" 31 ...


Edit:
[Walter Woeltche/Walter Mandler docet];
regarding the optical scheme ... , and in a serious constructive criticism, has the computerized asymmetric design reduced effectively the distance from the distinguishing feature of symmetrical wide-angles (Biogon, SuperAngulon...) ? ... I'm very interested to see what people, here, say ...

Best regards,
Ben-G

@angerdan,

Yes, i'm italian, I know very well Marco Cavina works and i'm an "old" (sic!) pentaxian, ... that i've posted is "an image of hope" 😊😉

I would still be happy if this new FA 21mm Limited were as fast as the FA 31mm Ltd ( and with an extraordinary soft manual aperture ring ! ... ).

Best regards from Italy!

Yes i think the same: it's a very sad thing the loss of aperture ring ...
I hope that they will not reduce the aperture to f2.8 ...

@gatorguy ... again ?! ...
"Any harm to my camera..."?
... sincerely this is not my case ...

"my K-1" is not mine, "my K-1" is your camera, is the camera of all of US that love PENTAX ...

@gatorgui, the word "SILLY" is offensive ...

Please, sincerely, ... STOP ! ....

Obviously ! Who don't know that "The most recent update will include all the prior fixes..."
I know it (!), but i'm not interested in other updates than 1.43 because i use my K1 only for my SMC Fa Limiteds ...

Other upgrades essentialy were done, such as described by RICOH, for new Hd fa star 50mm & 85, I don't want instructions on camera for lenses that I don't use ...

@gatorgui : is my request of this old update file firmware to other
Users in this forum a legit request ?
Or, if you prefer, an illogic / absurde request ?


"SHOULD YOU USE..." or simply "i could use..."? Or "why don't you prefer to use ... ?"

noblesse oblige,

Ben-G

... or it's most probably the case to say that " we are there now all together for us ! " 😉

... and we are waiting a little for another marvellous SMC Fa Limited lens :
a georgous 21mm with an aperture ring, a godronated ring focus and a terrific optical Biogon scheme !!!

10 reasons I will not buy K new
Posted By Ben-G
Replies: 53
Views: 3,353
#1 i've already the K-1, exclusively acquired for the ltd "three amigos";

#2 yes (even though I have the only necessary FA LIMITED lenses);

#3 relative ... ;

#4 Digital Camera/Lenses with their failures of automatic electronic control of diaphragm and autofocus motors ( sdm, plm, ...) are fixed expenditures, not an investment ;

#5 I donít need it even i thought that, for Pentax, are absolute necessary production against apsc mirrorless of other brands... ;

6# I want a digital Pentax 67 with a no-bayer sensor and also a crop-mode for ff lenses ... and even the choice between a colours and a monochrome version ;

#7 not only for the climate change : better a cycle !

#8 idem : "I have a nice printer that will print as large as I want - but I don't print that often." ;

#9 "j'adore" OVF !!! ... and i think that, just now, is a great strategic choice for industrial production of cameras... and this is not a paradox.
"Death to EVF"? No.. i prefer to say:
" LONG LIFE TO THE OPTICAL VIEWFINDER !!!" ;

#10 No, ... for now; but apart this obviously subjective position and in any case, as Mies van der Rohe said :

Less is more

Help Asahi-Pentax Adapter K for 6x7 Lens

SOLVED !!!

The lubricant, this night, has done his work.

Now the push button is free (!!!), i've dropped it, at the first, with alcohol denat with a dental floss, then with abundant and directly sprayed Arexon lubricant "Svitol" leaving it, for twelve ours, in vertical position second the axis of pin-hole and laid on a folded sheet of absorbent paper.

On the paper today some yellowish traces ... probably dirty solidified grease, now the push button is free, fluent; i can even rotate it, and present a very light resistance to the pressure and operates a fluent action of the lever inside the adapter.

Luckely no rust (!) ... it's amazing how few invisible dirt blocked the push button axis, ... such as welded !

Thanks also to the valuable assistance of Giorgio Melgrati.

Thanks again very much to the valuable suggestions of "hyyz"!

The push-button is welded ... seems to have, internal/external, a different cross section dimension ... internal is bigger and concentric ...solidified grease? rusty?... alcohol denat drops failed...
Uhm... tomorrow is another day!

Good night from Italy,

Anyone knows where can i find a "decent" manual use of this piece ?
