@fs999: Thanks for reminding me to clean the contacts. Now the 52 AF-1 works in nP-TTL ans P-TTL HSS mode again on the K1 :-) . ... but nit as Master ;-(
@Gerard_Dirks: I think you are right, Metz never will give use a firmware V 6.x to fix the Master/Slave bug.
Therefore I use my Cactus V6II tranceiver and receivers.

2,5 years later isn't even possible to fire the Metz 58 AF-1 in P-TTL Mode with Pentax K1. Only A and M Mode on the flash works ... it is a pitty!

(as fs999 said the contact cleaning helped to flash with P-TTL again :-) )

just roll a black piece of thick paper and fix it with some glue. Works fine with mine for several years now.

Tripod foot - DA 60-250, DA*300

the foot of the DA*60-250 is a bit longer, as you can see in the 3. thread. The Picture of MoRoTas above shows the difference. But they are completly intercharable and share the same mount with the Q FF Adapter. You can use the size you like most.

Opinions sought: older 300 A* f4 vs the FA 300 f5.6
Posted By pid

The A*300/4 is a realy fine lens and tak sharp from f5.6 on. It is the smallest 300 tele ever build with nice bokeh and rendering. Only flaw is the closest distance is 4m. So a extension tube 13mm or 20mm is good to have. Best the Kenko Pz-AF Uniplus tube 25 with its A-contacts.

Annoyed: 43 Ltd focus ring stuck

maybe it is just one of the little screews inside getting loose and now blocking the focus ring. Had that years ago with my FA31Ltd. Was no big deal to fix.

all three are a real alternative to Adobes products. Since I got Affinity Publisher and the other both apps, I didnt use Indesign, Illustrator or Photoshop any more. I sure will quit my CC Cloud membership soon.

In my opinion the DA*50-135/2.8 does not harmonize so well with the converter. At 135mm, you can live with the IQ, but the quality does not come close to what you are used to from the lens. Better use the DA*200.

The af Speed of the 60-250 is not very fast. But if the AF comes from the min. focus it is faster than from max. focus side.

sure, I did that too, but the bokeh with the converter isnt as good and it is not a f2.8 lens anymore and no zoom. I think you can not compare this.

Addendum: ah now i understand. You didn't say, that ES and SR, both work together! You meant that you could use either the SR or ES by switching from single shot to continuous shooting.
