Been working out of town all week, long days. Too tired for photos most days (just enough time to squeeze in some breath of the wild though). Getting back into it this weekend. Stoked to see some shots with that 135 1.8!

Just to add to the data- mine mysteriously and abruptly developed what might be haze, delamination or something else. I'm still shooting with it happily and have not noticed any degradation to image quality.

Well, I was considering singling the f135, but since there should be a silver 31 (finally got one with the red pouch!) in my mailbox tomorrow, guess I'll be joining the 31 crew.

I always do it from the flickr app on my phone to the instagram app. I don't think you can do it via desktop, but I'm not sure.

Heavy Duty Strap Recommendation

The domke gripper strap has been working for me. It's very strong with metal parts. I like that you can unclip it from the little strap rings on the camera when needed.

You can put a dab of blue threadlock to keep the lens on the adapter. But don't forget to take the spring off.

200mm Telephoto lens recommendation for Pentax K1 (Mark1)

I can also recommend the FA*80-200. It is fantastic on the K1. The DA300 is superb but probably too long. Alternatively, the older FA135 2.8 is very small, good for a walk around, family snapshot type outing.

Appropriate macro and zoom lens for K1 given FA 43/1.9 LTD

The 24-70 is a superb do-it-all lens. Goes wide, close focusing, and gives 70mm at 2.8 for nice portraits/subject isolation. The 28-105 is great for travel, but I found the 24-70 much more versatile.
Also the 43 works well with extension tubes to get closer.

With original hood, box, pouch, paperwork, front cap, rear cap. Great condition, excellent copy of this lens, very sharp, no issues. Very small nick or something on the very outside edge of the glass that is hard to see except under certain lighting conditions. Tried to show it in one of the photos.
This has been my do it all workhorse. Always reliable. But I'm not shooting events right now, or really doing much in the way of photography so it's a good time to let it go.

The conversion process is really easy and should work on any body. On pc you use notepad and just change a few numbers around. My converted da300 works great and isn't even all that loud.
