If PS is no longer moving the sensor , then that implies that the Astro mode (which also requires movement of the sensor) can now work with Pixel Shift. That sounds like the K1ii now might permit pixel shift Astro mode. That would be very nice .....

I bought a K3ii but still have the k-30 I haven't fixed or sold yet. That does seem steep. I was going to give it a mate who is competent enough to fix it, but he's not popped by for a while, so thought I might get it repaired.

Congratulations on your purchase . Was I right that it does autonomous auto-focussing then?

You can't go wrong for a tenner really :)

Seller doesn't want to ship it, and I don't fancy it enough to drive for 2 hours each way, so we may never know more :)

Looks wise - It looks a bit like the old Vivitar 75-200 autofocus that does show up in a google search. I may be wrong about it being autonomous but it looks crazy big for normal autofocus and specifies its for Pentax K Mount , not PKA.

It is remarkable because it contains a standalone autofocus system. That doesn't It is remarkable because I think it contains a standalone autofocus system which sounds like a historical curiosity.
That doesn't necessarily equate to valuable or useful though :)

Interestingly, the entire internet seems unaware of the existence of this lens.

I'm guessing Miranda enthusiasts are more rare still though ;)

Hi Folks,

Am I right in thinking that a Miranda lens with built in standalone autofocus are a pretty rare curiosity ? The one I have my eye on is a 75-200mm Macro f4.5 in PK mount. It looks like the old vivitar 'in lens , standalone autofocus ' systems .

I'm guessing they're not worth a lot, but if one fell into my hands, does anyone have a clue what such an oddity be worth to a collector?

I really don't need another lens, but it looks intriguing.

Cheers,

Ian.

Yes, when I saw mine listed at 100 GBP I thought it was a bargain but had just spent big on a DA* 300 so didn't go for it at first. Others on eBay that day were selling for 110-130 so it wasn't quite bargainous enough. When I saw it had dropped to 72 after Xmas, and all the eBay ones were back up to 200 quid, couldn't resist. :) The seller had some lovely pics on their Facebook page which I would guess originated from this lens.

I should wait till it arrives before I celebrate though ... not arrived yet.

Arrives tomorrow so we'll see :)

Gone a bit mad this Christmas. After finding out just how incredible the 16-50 was, I've started scouting for bargains to upgrade my collection to stars and limiteds. Though I still have a soft spot for my sigma 70-300 dg macro , so I'm selling a 60-250 that I don't really need :)

Picked up a 40mm LTD from Facebook marketplace for 72 GBP. Fingers crossed it's in good nick :)

Also picked up a Yongnuo 585 to replace all my film era flashes. Already amazed by the improvement on my indoor shots and have started reading up 'how to use a flash' since I never really used anything other than the onboard one on my K-30 and digital cameras before this K3. Loving it so far.

There is a point to the micro SD suggestion. You can pop it straight in your phone to upload to the web whilst on location, and some modern laptops don't have regular SD (my new one for example)

I think I've gone a bit mad this Xmas as I've bought a Pentax da * 300mm f4 ed if sdm and a sigma 70-300mm f5.6 apo dg .

I'm selling a da * 60-250mm to fund the habit as I wasn't getting on with it. (250mm was just too short for me and I rarely shot shorter so the cheaper option is probably fine for what I need in that range).

I'm not sure if I got bargains yet or not.
I guess it depends what the 60-250 sells for (It's on the bay) and whether the 300mm has a clean bill of health on the SDM motors !

Of course , now I need a stronger tripod ;)

Quite breathtaking. Wonderful capture.



Out of interest, did you apply any post processing at all , or is this 'out of the camera' ?

Whenever I see a beautiful sunrise or sunset, it always loses so much in the edit...
