Pentax has always made new bodies which are backwards compatible with old lenses, not the other way around.
Glass is forever.

I've also had good results just focussing through the viewfinder. Getting the right dioptre correction on the eyepiece is crucial of course.

Pentax Adapter Q for K-mount Lenses - is really worth it? ($200)
Posted By Sandy Hancock

I have nothing to add to the above.

There are cheaper adaptors, but the Pentax version is beautifully built and has a built in leaf shutter. I think it's worth the coin.

You need excellent lenses to make it work well. The DFA100WR, DA*200 and DA*300 have given me great results.

What would you choose.... for your minimalist photo equipment list ?

I have two minimalist kits.

K-1 with FA20, FA31, FA43, FA77 and K135/2.5 (I could make do with the FA31 and FA77 alone if push came to shove)

OR

KP with DA15, DA21, HD35, DA70 and HD55-300PLM (again, the DA21 and DA70 on their own could suffice)

Both fit comfortably in my smallest camera bag (Tamrac hip belt/bum bag/fanny pack)

I have just heard from C.R.Kennedy that the first Australian shipment of the DFA*50 is expected on Friday 3rd August. A couple of weeks behind some other markets, but not too long to wait :)

And a considerably less grand landscape than the one above, taken on the same trail run at about the half way mark.

Mine is the 22nd, but I'd be surprised if C.R.Kennedy has stock in time.

Not exactly street shots, but you get the idea.

FA*24 on crop. Wide open



The bokeh from the DA21 isn't too bad really.

FUD sells apparently.

Writing that a stampede of pre-orders had completely sold out the initial production run of Pentax's first, industry-leading, DFA* prime would not have the same effect.

Some travel issues with Pentax lenses. Or: Will there be a 15-30mm f4. anytime "soon"

I have taken the DFA15-30 on two recent overseas trips (the UK and Ireland in July 2016, and a cruise between China and Japan in August 2017). It will certainly be coming with me to Antarctica at the end of this year. Sure, it's heavy, but it covers a range of really useful focal lengths with image quality rivalling most primes, and I now have a filter system for it. The weather resistance and silent focus makes it unique for any lens wider than 24mm in the Pentax ecosystem.

Add a fast fifty and DFA100WR, and all but my serious telephoto needs are covered.

In Aussie Dollars and with import duty added that's going to be north of 3000. Not happening.

It's not like I don't have other options at the focal length; I'll just have to struggle on with my K135/2.5, DA*50-135 and DFA*70-200 :D
