Sounds like a possible failure of the shutter. Can you take a long exposure photo (let's say 10 seconds) and see the sensor through the front of the lens?

Filter Comparison: Marumi Pro Digital vs DHG Super

Yes, that is what originally sparked my interest in these ... I would be good to know whether the optical quality at least matches that of the "DHG Super" models.

Amazon does list the "PRO" filters as multicoated, however I could not find any mention of these on marumi's website ... are ex-pentax marketing guys working there now :D

I found some sellers offering Marumi "Pro-Digital" CPL filters with brass rings ... any idea how they stack up against the Marumi DHG Super CPL (which I own and which are very good):

Brass 62mm 62 CPL Digital Pro Filter Lens Marumi MC Thin Slim Wide Japan NEW | eBay

vs

Marumi 49mm CPL 49 Super DHG MC Slim Thin PL.D Filter Circular Polarizer Japan | eBay

Cheers.

Here is my friendly comment regarding the newer lenses being 100000x better ... not. If they were indeed, 40 year old lenses would fetch 100000x lower prices ... which they do not.
Zooms aside, most vintage lenses (Takumars, for example) in 28-200mm range hold their own against their modern counterparts.

Vintage zoom do, however, suck (for the most part, anyway) in my experience.

Item for Sale
Image 28mm f2.8 PKA Mount

Asking Price
85

Item Location
Ottawa (Canada)

Item Description
Very nice Image 28mm f2.8 Prime Manual Focus Lens in Pentax-KA mount (no Ricoh pin making it compatible with all Pentax DSLRs. I have personally used this lens on K-5 and K-x with great pleasure). I believe it was also marketed under the "Vivitar" name. I'm only retiring this lens due to my FA31 (and my tired eyes).

Compatible with the latest digital Pentax bodies (K5/K-01/K-R/K-X/K20d/etc) in in all modes due to the -A setting on the aperture.

Great little lens - the 28mm focal length is equivalent to a "normal" 50mm view on digital crop bodies (K-5, K-x, K-r, K-01, K20d, etc).

Please see the pics - they are of the actual lens and accessories for sale.

BONUS - Comes with a FREE filter and a front and a rear cap.

Free Shipping to US/Canada. Paypal fees included. Contact me for other countries.
