Still in progress, but I have trusted Keh with one of my favorites, the Pentax-D FA 645 90mm f 2.8 SDM HD AW, to try to deal with some missed focus difficulties. Hoping for the best as this is one of my favorite lenses of any format.

Mr. Pumpkin goes to Walmart. Folks, being a pumpkin photographer is not all fun and games. While I was taking my photos, one of those double-wide Walmart shoppers passed by and said in a loud voice: "Now isn't that stupid! Now I have seen every thing." I did not respond, just put Mr. Pumpkin back in the car and sort of slinked away.

KIT: K-1 with (adapted) Pentax-A 645 35mm f 3.5.

I like that Hargrove quotation on your posts. I used to travel the world, visiting perhaps 40-50 countries as an international business/economics consultant to the UNDP-OPE, World Bank, Asian Development Bank, etc. I made it my custom always to read in detail about the history and culture of each country before travelling there, and found the knowledge I gained immensely helpful from both personal and professional standpoints.

Thank you very much for recognizing the physical and aesthetic qualities of this handsome pumpkin. We are planning to continue photographing this excellent exemplar of the gourd family given the absence of any blossoms in our garden. I will personally protect him during this danger-filled holiday season from the ravages of those who prefer pumpkin pie over the option of keeping pumpkins intact and unviolated.

Nice use of the 45. I don't have it but love the 67-55 on both the K-1 and the 645Z.

Marvelous photos, especially the ones capturing sun rays in the forest. Great use of the FA (?) 150mm, one of my own favorites.

Would love to try out the 50 f 1.4 sometime. Good photo, and understandably your model does not appear prepared to tolerate very much foolishness.

I was really just checking out the new (to me) FA 150, which I find I am liking very well for its sharpness, rendering, and subject isolation at large apertures.

Trying out the Pentax 67 300mm f 4.0 (with adapter). Not the world's best telephoto lens, but a bargain approach to long telephoto on the K-3, with FOV approximately equivalent to a native DA 900mm lens on the K-3.

SDM focus problem 645 90mm

Has anyone else had problems with the SDM focussing on the Pentax-D FA 645 90mm f 2.8? Mine works irregularly and unpredictably. Sometimes it does not work at all. Other times, it may work once or twice and then stop working. Any comments appreciated.

Nice shots with widely varied subject matter. I like the sawmill, but I think I'll take the salmon!

November fall color drew me into the rain this morning with an interesting kit. I love using the older 645-A lenses on the K-1.

I just paid $15.47 for three back caps for Mamiya 645 lenses.

I seem to have developed a peculiar interest in trying non-Pentax lenses on the K-1, 645Z, and 645D, so have previously acquired the Mamiya 45/2.8, 80/1.9, and 150/3.5, all without back caps for some reason. These three only work on the K-mount cameras as registry distances are incompatible with the Pentax 645s. As a general comment, this is a somewhat senseless exercise as none of the Mamiya lenses tried so far, with the possible exception of the 80/1.9, have much to offer that is not available on Pentax medium format lenses. They are good lenses, but to the non-pixil peeker no better than the Pentax lenses of similar focal length.

Prime lens shots in the rain.

645Z and 90mm make a nice combo for shooting in the rain.

120 film using a 220 back - 645N

You can buy 220 film on eBay. However, our local pro camera shop here in Cleveland, OH, only carries 120, says not enough demand to stock 220.
