They did my repair, too. They do a great job (if not being super great at staying in touch with you. But hey - at least they got it done).

Bump for the fa*24. I have the fa*28-70 and the new 15-30. If not for that, I'd grab it up. If you can do it, don't let this lens pass you by!

Yep-I just bought a three way head as a backup to two ball heads. RRS is fantastic equipment - this a good price. If I hadn't just bought new legs and a new head I'd be all over this.

Beautiful! And it makes me homesick for my beloved Commonwealth. I was just up in Altoona last week visiting my son at college; I was very close to taking a trek over to Fallingwater. It was just too far to cram it into a short weekend:(

A question about a Canon EO5 Rebel T6i

My guess is it's an issue with the lens. Problems with third party lenses and mounts are usually a lens issue. If cleaning the contacts does nothing to improve the situation, I would return the Sigma.

I am a bit confused - you say you missed a lot because of your all-prime kit, yet you are looking at a prime lens? And the k1 is well below Sony's cheapest ff body. And EVF is no fun focusing - even at 4.5 a good split focus screen should suffice. But there are used k1s on the market that are on par price-wise with a used a7sii (and the k1's sensor is double the size of the Sony).

Thats not what I would consider a walk around lens, though-too wide and too much barrel distortion in the corners.

Those Ultra wides aren't really great walkarounds. You need to be careful about keeping vertical perspective correct to keep from having crazy looking images; they're best used on tripods. For a general walkaround, I wouldn't go below 16mm. You should keep an eye on KEH and the lens rental companies when they sell their gear. But I doubt you are going to find a Canon lens at that focal length for that kind of money.

I doubt it:( If you are using filters, just get a better ND filter and leave it on permanently. There's really no need to take it on and off.

It is pricey but it is the correct shape. I always prefer buying Pentax over third party, but you should be able to find another square snap-on hood. I know I saw this one:
Vello PS-49 Dedicated Lens Hood LHP-S49 B&H Photo Video
It should do the same job.

Item Description
Two old-school Buff studio lights. One is a White Lightning 130A and one is a White Lightning 5000 BCPS. I bought them for some studio work that fell through. I'm using them as floor lamps in my office right now (kind of a waste). If you want to separate them, they're $70 each.

Item for Sale
Pentax k5iis, Sigma 10-20 f4, battery grip plus EXTRAS if you buy as kit!!!!

Asking Price
650.00 USD

Item Location
New Jersey (United States)

Item Description
I would love to sell this as a full kit. If you do buy all items, I will throw in a Pentax AF500 flash with case and an extra OEM battery and OEM charger with the grip. I am also including the original box for the camera and the original case for the lens.

Separate pricing: k5iis: $400
Grip: $100
Lens: $200.

Any dust on the lens is EXTERNAL only - there is no internal dust. I will see if I can get it cleaned up a bit more and take some other pictures.
Thanks!

The mirror may have been stuck and that loud clunk was probably the startup pushing the mirror back down regardless of any previous settings. I would keep an eye on it but I wouldn't worry too much about it. You may want to send it for a good cleaning, though.

I meant it will be in the future. I doubt this lens will stay in production forever. Pentax took quite a long hiatus between the FA*80-200 and this one.

DA 200mm F2.8 vs DFA 70-200 F2.8 for full frame
Posted By Ari

I have heard good reports on people using the DA 200 on the k1. But you are much better off in terms of flexibility and using the full range of your k1 with the DFA*70-200. I own that and a k1. It is tack sharp at 200mm even wide open. And B&H has it with a $150 discount. That still makes it double the price of the 200, but you are getting three times the lens.

That's a great price on the D FA*70-200!!!! If anyone even had any reason to hesitate buying this lens, jump on it now! It will be the FA*80-200 of the future - you will never lose a penny on it no longer how long you keep it for! And hey - it's $150 less than I paid for it!
