Did you ever get this lens fixed? I have one that is floppy (lens barrel & aperture ring) and a bit grimy inside but I really like the handling & pics. I can't find any info on refurbishing on the net. Randy

I am curious about your opinion of the Tamron 300mm f2.8 for fast moving sports like motorcycle racing. I am looking for better quality pictures. I have the DA* 60-250 f4, but would like more reach (use K5, & recently upgraded to K3ii). I don't know how the 60-250 would handle the 1.4 t/c, so looking at 300 & beyond. I have been watching the Tamron 300 f2.8 SP Adaptall 2 lenses but AF is important. I am in BC Canada. Thanks Randy

I am looking at your 100-300 lens. I have a 55-300 DA-L I am not happy with sharpness at long end. I also have some wondeful old primes and love their build quality. I am wondering if this will be sharper and sturdier than my 55-300.

Thanks to everyone for the replies, I will feel better about exchanging it, but did not want to over-react either.

PentaxnFA 43 F1.9 Ltd with internal dust

Hi, new to forum, getting more serious about photography after years of taking snaps. I am currently using a K100D waitng for arrival of a K5.
I am hoping for some advice.
I received brand new 43 mm Ltd from reputable on-line dealer yesterday. I love the way it looks and feels and it makes beautiful portraits. Examing the lens I see a reflective particle behind the front element in the center of the lens. Bigger than a dust particle, very shiny, I am unsure what it is, a flashlight makes it more visible, it doesnt move, it is not on the surface. I couldnt see anything on my laptop screen in the photos I have taken.

Is this common?
Are there quality control issues with the Ltd series (I have bought two other new lenses and they appear perflectly clear)?

I appreciate any thoughts (didnt find the topic searching the forums, maybe becasue I am new to it!)
Thank you
ps Great site!
