Albinism is relatively common in Tanzania. Google if you are interested in reading about the dangers albinos face in Tanzania (not for the faint hearted).

The 2005 Casio probably cost close to what the K-1 is selling for on sale. My 2007 purchase of the K10d and kit lens was only a couple of hundred less than the K-1 is selling for now without taking inflation into account.

I don't know much about medium format gear but AUD 66.00 with 5 hours to go seems like a good deal

I've been lusting after a DFA 150-450 since renting one in the USA last year and the stars finally aligned last week to get one with a local warranty for the best possible price. Now I just have to carry it out of the country with me to get the TRS cash back.

15% off sale + less than 60 days till I travel overseas + lens I wanted in stock = wallet considerably thinner.

The overall price was less than the buying from B & H even before you take into account GST. Factoring in the TRS refund I'll get and the GST that would have been added to the price from B & H the saving from buying locally is over A$500, plus I have a local warranty.

I submitted my order yesterday afternoon and as of 7.30 this morning it is with the delivery driver, I can't complain about that

Many years ago my father in law saw a painting featuring Belted Galloways, he said "That's ridiculous there's no cows like that". I said nothing at the time but took great delight in showing him some shots I took of a herd in the NSW southern highlands a couple of months later. Ever since I have a soft spot for Belted Galloways.

Item for Sale
Sigma 150-500mm F5-6.3 DG HSM APO

Asking Price
750.00 AUD

Item Location
Canberra (Australia)

Item Description
I've had this lens from new and it has produced many excellent photos. I'm looking to upgrade to a DFA 150-450mm so I need to sell this lens first.

The lens comes with original boxes, padded case, hood, front and rear caps. I will throw in an 86mm skylight filter that I use to protect the front element.

The front and rear glass are in excellent condition. There is 1 small blemish on the front element that I think is just a cleaning or water mark (probably 1mm in size).

The tripod foot has lost some of the flocking (see photo). This seems to be standard.

There are a few minor scuffs and marks on the barrel. Some scuffs on the edges of the lens hood and a scratch on the front cap. These are all the result of wear and tear, the lens has never been dropped or abused.

The white lines on the A/M focus switch and the OS have worn off.

Which lenses to take to Japan
Posted By Mike L

I'm currently considering the same thing for a trip to Japan in December. This won't be my first time and I won't be covering as much ground as you.

I think your standard kit will cover almost everything. If your not going with wildlife in mind, I'd leave the FA*300 at home and take the DA35 macro (I prefer this over the FA50 because it is more compact and perhaps more versatile). Though the fisheye could add an interesting perspective to the cityscapes.

I'll definitely be taking my Sigma 8-16 and DA*16-50 to cover the cityscapes and landscapes. I'm also planning a visit to the snow monkeys at Yudanaka so I'm tossing up between the DA50-200 which is versatile and smaller or the F*300 better IQ and more reach.
