Item for Sale
Pentax K-1 Package: Camera + Battery Grip + 28-105mm d-FA lens

Asking Price
1,499.00 USD

Item Location
orange county, CA (United States)

Item Description
Here is an irresistible deal. For the miserly sum of $1499, you can launch into the full-frame universe with Pentax.

Here is what is included:

* near mint camera body with only 577 shutter actuations

* new, unused battery grip

* Pentax D FA 28-105mm F3.5-5.6ED DC WR HD Lens

This is great gear, and at the price, the lens is given to you almost free.

Why am I offering this deal? Is there a catch. NO. This is a square deal. In fact, this is my second K-1 and I
love the night and astro features, However, I just can't handle the size and weight. I am selling this mint
gear to raise cash for lighter equipment.

Item for Sale
Nikon ES-2 Film & Slide Digitizing Adapter for Pentax

Asking Price
79.00 USD

Item Location
Orange County, CA (United States)

Item Description
I used this device (once) with a Pentax K-1 and Sigma 70mm macro lens. Worked just fine. Have no further need of it. Listed price $139 retail when new.

For photos of the device, see: ES-2 Film Digitizing Adapter Set from Nikon

The ES-2 is a Film Digitizing Adapter that lets you easily convert your film images to digital. Taking advantage of the high-pixel count of the D850's 45.7 MP, the Film Digitizing Adapter lets you convert both 35mm slides and negatives to digital files. Using a lens such as the AF-S Micro NIKKOR 60mm f/2.8G ED attached to the D850, the camera's digitizing function automatically reverses the colors and stores them as JPEG images. This once time-consuming process involving a film scanner can be done much more quickly. For negative strips, use the FH-4 Strip Film Holder with the ES-2 and for slides, use the FH-5 Slide Mount Holder with the ES-2.

The set includes: ES-2 Negative Digitizer, FH-4 Strip Film Holder, FH-5 Slide Mount Holder, and 2 different 62mm adapter rings (62mm adapter ring A and 62mm adapter ring B).

SMC Pentax-M Stiff, Very STIFF Aperture Ring

I have a very nice copy of this lens, but the aperture ring is quite stiff and very hard to adjust.

So, I took off the back mounting plate, and, SHAZAMM ! the aperature ring is OK.
Then, I place the mounting ring back on, and it is too tight again.

Once I got the mounting plate, and little shim off, there is no obvious way to adjust or dissasemble from there.

Any guidance, appreciated.

Item for Sale
SMC Pentax 24mm F/3.5 Lens ** K mount **

Asking Price
115.00 USD

Item Location
laguna woods, CA (United States)

Item Description
A very nice lens - small and light. I bought for night landscapes, and it is just a tad too slow at f/3.5 - but should be great for you.

Glass is excellent - no defects that I can see in natural light.

Lens is fully functional on a K-1. I used it manual focus and operation only.

Body is fair, shows signs of wear on the paint on the very front or knurled rings. A small ding on the front filter rings, but it still threads a filter ok.

When you say stupid or hurtful things, those words do not fly off into the ether, to disappear into the cloud or whatever. Those words are read by another human being, with thoughts and feelings just like yours.

SMC Pentax-A Macro f2.8 50mm

Asking Price
109.00 USD

Item Location
Orange County, CA (United States)

Item Description
This is a very nice lens; perfect for me because it has almost no COMA in the corners, making it quite suitable for astro-panoramas. Alas, f2.8 is a little too slow for me, but you might find it suitable for other purposes.

Glass is excellent; very,very slight internal dust, but you need to shine a flashlight though it to see anything,

Metal body is fine, no dings or scratches or damage.

FULL FRAME, of course.

Sturm und Drang over the K1M2

wrote the original piece as a description of my personal experiences and opinions.
I have no position, no axe to grind, nothing to gain or lose. In fact, I personally lost
about $500 switching back to the Mark 1.

At best, I was looking for a reasoned rebuttal of facts and data, something overlooked, something mistaken, etc.

I got darned few of those, but did get a number of FANBOY responses like:

"Do you own this camera, or are you just doing the parrot thing and repeating what a guy who is generally perceived to be an anti-Pentax moron over at DPR says."

"Is this like a robot troll bait post by DPR staff."

"He didn't even give us a shot at it. He just came and pontificated."

"The post is still a rambling bit of incoherence."

Calls for evidence to support some of my opinions will go unanswered.
Why would I want to subject myself to further abuse?

What is wrong with you guys?

I tried very hard to come up with a reasoned and logical assessment of what I have personally seen and done, based upon my needs as a photographer. I OWN/OWNED BOTH CAMERAS, and have many sample images.

So, what is the majority response?

I am a troll, an agent of DPR, don't know what I am doing after 40 years in photography and 20 years doing astrophotography. I currently own an extensive line of Sony and now Pentax cameras and lenses. I have owned and used, and am quite familiar with Olympus, Canon platforms. I write software, some of it for imaging.

I expected better, but, it seems like the fanboys have nothing better to do.
