Spend some time on Neil Van Niekerk's website:http://neilvn.com/tangents/ Look at articles about on-camera flash and bounce flash. If you have time and desire, check out Strobist for off-camera flash Strobist If you decide to invest in off-camera set up, Lighting 101 tutorials with one light set up will improve your shots tremendously.

Good luck.

It was in today's Samy's ad distributed with Los Angeles times. I am assuming it is still valid.

I haven't been following the medium format prices closely, but this seems to be a very good deal.

645Z with 55 2.8 lens included for $6,995 (no tax) at Samy's. I think it's in store only.

If you do not know Samy's, it is a very reputable Los Angeles area camera store.

K-S1 & 18-55 lens -- $179 (no tax) Samy's Store Only

Samy's lowered the price on K-S1 with 18-55 lens to $179 as part of their Pre-Black Friday sale. This appears to be an "in-store only" price as the website still has them at $199 (also a great price). The price is in their ad supplement

Take a look at this thread: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/22-pentax-camera-field-accessories/215049...ml#post2274892

Also, search for other posts by SOldBear. I've used his suggestions of step down rings in place of hoods on several FA primes. They work great.

I saw on the other forum that Ricoh has a new website: Ricoh Imaging Americas Corporation, so I was looking around and saw that the new D FA* 70-200mm f/2.8 is listed among DFA lenses. Price is shown at $2,299.95 and it looked like it's available for order. I was able to put it in the shopping cart and click all the way through until it was time to input the credit card. At no time did it say that the lens was not yet available or that it will be shipped at some future date. I did not go all the way through because I would not be able to come home if I spent $2,300 on a new lens, but if there are others out there, braver than I am, check it out.

I would have thought that if the lens were available, it would be huge news and someone would have picked up on it already. But who knows.

Ryanair small bag cabin baggage for my DSLR
Posted By lenp

2 cm is less than an inch. I doubt any airline is going to object and the bag is soft so while the dimensions are slightly larger, in actual use, it should easily comply with regulations.

I admit, I am a big Lowepro fan. Twice they treated me extremely well. First time, I called customer service looking to buy a replacement strap. They send it to me for free. Second time, I broke a latch on my Toploader. Instead of repairing, they sent me a brand new bag. The customer service guy (who sounded like the owner of the company) said that the old latch was not up to their standards.

The lens is temporarily not available to be shipped. Will is borrowing it to take on his trip to Yellowstone. Hopefully, he will post some great photos and provide some comments about the lens after his trip.

Pentax 20-40 DA Lens

Atcoombs, any chance you can post a photo of your set up with the step up ring. I too am concerned about losing the lens cap on the 20-40 and am wondering how you are using the ring and the hood together. I've put on step down rings on several of my FA lenses instead of hoods (credit to Soldbear https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/10-pentax-slr-lens-discussion/224537-lens...ml#post2382957), but not sure what you are doing.

Thanks. Len

I am surprised no one mentioned the DA 20-40 Limited. I just spent several days in New York doing the usual tourist things (Ellis Island, Statue of Liberty, The Met, Central Park) and it barely came off the camera even though I had both 15 and 70 Limited in the bag. The 20-40 is still very new to me, but it is truly a member of Limited family and a joy to use.

Item for Sale
Lowepro Toploader Pro 75 AW

Asking Price
25.00 USD

Item Location
Orange County, California (United States)

Item Description
This is a Lowepro Toploader Pro 75 AW. It comfortably fits a full size DSLR with grip attached (K-3 or K-5II) and a long lens (70-200 2.8). It is in very good condition, except for one item. As you can see in the photos below, the plastic buckle to the main compartment broke. However, this buckle is a redundancy option as the main compartment has two zippers to close it. I think the buckle is also a safety/convenience option when you do not want to use the zippers.

I do not have access to a sewing machine to fix it. Because of the broken buckle I am asking $25 for it.

Yes
