Hi Kendra,

If the 59 after your name is your birth year we have it in common:-) My solution to managing the weight of my gear in my 60’s was to purchase a sturdy dog stroller to take with me on walks. Camera bag and even a tripod fit right in. Mine has built in cup holders which are great for setting a lens in for lens changes and/or taking a beverage in a spill proof container. If you get one with sturdy wheels it can handle most walking terrain. Mine is collapsible and easy to get in and out of the car. My favorite and only camera right now is a Pentax 645Z which is a pretty hefty camera. Quite manageable for shooting without lugging it with my shoulders or back. The stroller just rolls along and allows me to store a lunch and a jacket underneath if I want to make a day of it.

If the existing glass is stable, a quick useful cosmetic fix might be to replace the the standard eyepiece (its removable) with the Pentax O-ME53 magnifying eyepiece which has its own glass piece. You would have the benefit of the magnification and the crack would most likely not be noticeable.

Repair or Buy new k1 MKii or Jump ship???

One consideration in whether to stay with Pentax or move to another brand would be your current lens collection. You could probably use them with an adapter but you would lose autofocus functionality with them. How much would it cost you to replace your favorite/most used lenses with those for the new brand?

I wouldn't hesitate to buy a used K-1mkII from someplace like KEH which offers a 6 month warranty. Its better than most manufactures' refurbished warranties which are usually for 90 days. Keep in mind that the camera did not break, you broke it. Pentax makes quality cameras. There is also a warranty on the repairs.

What are your DSLR dealbreakers?

It would if the major carriers did not offer 0% financing and 24 months to pay for them (conveniently rolled into their monthly cell phone bill). Most large retailers like Best Buy and Amazon offer their card holders 0% financing and 6, 12, 18, or 24 months to pay especially during the holiday shopping season. Don't have credit? Can't qualify for a monthly cell phone contract? Chances are you are not the owner of a $1000 smart phone. Maybe the camera manufacturers should take a page from the wireless carriers' play book. Offer their cameras with low or 0% financing on an installment plan, sell monthly insurance on them, buy them back at upgrade time, refurbish them and use them for fulfilling insurance claims (that also have a copayment). I bet B&H sold a lot of cameras with their 0% 24-month financing over the holidays.

I did sell it. Missed it after doing so. Now have another one, so am interested in the new 70-210. I thought I saw the lens pouch for $34.95 on B&H, but maybe I am remembering wrong. The case was a standard accessory on the Pentax version of the Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 macro. I had a copy and it came with it. I like Pentax's cases better:-)

I guess the deal breakers for me are the features that I have come to cherish with my Pentax DSLR cameras:

Excellent ergonomics
Buttons instead of menus for white balance, iso, and exposure compensation
IBIS
LCD on top
Front and rear dials
Image replay zoom using a dial, not an inconveniently placed button
Excellent dynamic range
Accessories that can be used on multiple models, i.e. cable releases, IR remotes, batteries
SD card option

Adorama's specs show the lens case as being "optional". $1000+ lens and they can't include a lens pouch? Tacky.

Someone should buy this lens. It is such a compact lens that even without the tripod collar it is a very hand holdable lens. The sharpness, contrast and bokeh are to live for. I love my copy. Whoever buys it will not be disappointed.

What is the state of Pentax MF??

The 50 megapixel GFX bodies are cropped MF without IBIS. The 100 megapixel GFX is overkill in size, megapixels, and expense for amateur photographers. A new 645 body with a full MF sized sensor and IBIS would be the sweet spot especially if it was similar in cost to the 645Z. Given the 645 DFA lenses, I wouldn’t be surprised if it were the next iteration of a digital 645.

I recently ordered a new Spyderpro holster hand strap from B&H. I’ve purchased this strap for a couple of my other cameras and it has always come packaged in its retail box. This time is arrived in a zip loc type bag with a sticker affixed to the front. It was a defective item as the part that connects to the D-rings was shorter than normal. It appears they sent me someone’s returned item and were attempting to pass it off as new. I am a long time B&H customer and I am very disappointed with this behavior on their part. I am returning the strap and B&H will not be my first choice for future purchases.
