We’ve been out here since Saturday and will leave be leaving this coming Saturday. The smoke/haze doesn’t become a factor until the afternoon.
I’ve been exclusively using the K-3 III with the 150-450 and the HD1.4x converter, the K-3 and the 60-250 and the K1 II with the FA* 24-70. No plans to change that. Most shots by far with the K-1 II and FA* 24-70.

This will be my first trip to Yellowstone and Grand Teton. We will be with our guide on our first full day so we are hoping to glean as much useful information as we can from him that we will be able to use during the balance of our stay.

We will be hoping to get SUV although we don't have any plans to drive to far off the beaten path.

I have a NP Lifetime Senior Pass which I obtained a couple of years ago when I visited Joshua Tree NP. It will admit me and any occupants of my vehicle.

We are very much looking forward to the trip. Hope you all have a great time as well.

Thank you aslyfox for starting this thread and thanks to all who have already offered up gear and on site suggestions. I will also be visiting Yellowstone NP and Grand Tetons NP this fall, arriving 9/4 and departing 9/11. We'll be staying in West Yellowstone and venturing out from there each day.

We have reserved a guide for the first full day of what we are referring to as the "animal safari" since that is what this particular guide is noted for. After that we will be loosely following an itinerary that we all have been working on for weeks. By "we all" I mean my wife, my adult daughter and a grand daughter and her husband who are flying in from LA to meet us there.
Since we are flying there as well I am limited as far as what gear I can bring. As it stands right now I am taking three bodies: the K-3 III, K-3 and the K-1 II. As far as lenses go I am thinking the DFA 150-450, DA* 60-250, FA 31 Ltd, DA 15 Ltd, DFA 100 WR Macro, and the SigmaDC 8-16 HSM and/or the DA 10-17 Fisheye. I really only want to bring one of the wide angle zooms so maybe someone can advise me on which one would be the better choice.

I will also have the Ricoh GR III, with the wide angle converter,holstered on my hip. I am curious to see what it can produce in the wide open spaces.

Focus ring jammed on a SMC Pentax A* 300 mm f/2.8

I had a similar situation about 6 years ago with my Pentax A* 600 where the focus ring had all of a sudden gotten hard to turn. I took it to a repair shop in Indy recommended by another forum member who lives there. There wasn't anything wrong with it other than it needed cleaned and lubricated. It has worked fine ever since.

It was CameraRepairs.com but I just went to their site and they have closed for business due to a death in the family. It doesn't indicate whether or not they will be reopening.
