Item for Sale
Pentax HD DA 40mm 2.8 Limited

Asking Price
255.00 USD

Item Location
Pittsburgh (United States)

Item Description
I'm second owner of this lens. Glass is pristine condition, no scratches or dust. Wonderful paired with the KP for a mirrorless like setup.

Included are all original accessories, lens hood, lens hood cap, leather pouch and all paper work.

Nearly mint condition except for small mark on the lens hood, appearing under the 40mm lettering. Shows in a macro close-up, but otherwise unnoticeable. It is near the thread for the lens cap but is not on the thread itself and therefore does not affect screwing the cap onto the hood.

When I acquired the KP I also bought the 20-40 Limited as a kit and Iíve now found that I donít use the 40 Limited often enough as a result. Itís the only reason Iím selling this.

A similar thing happened to me years ago with my first Pentax dslr, the *istDL. What happened with me was when testing the camera one day I was firing off flash shots in rapid succession which apparently stressed the capacitor causing it to fail. It was an easy repair for the shop, just replaced with a new one. Lesson learned.

GR I and II = 28 - 35 - 47 focal lengths. Stellar lens. Fits in your pocket. Been shooting with them since 2013. GRIII probably will be even better with 24mp sensor.

GR II now selling for $500 new. Time to buy?

Similar to my situation - my 5 yr old GR, while still taking pics, is in need of a good cleaning and some buttons are starting to occasionally stick. I'm very interested in the new GRIII but not sure I want to wait until sometime(?) in 2019 and not sure about spending $900 to $1,000. I took delivery of my new GRii from B&H just the other day and at $499 I have no reason to look back.

A side note, I was curious as to my shutter count and found this quite easy and slick way I've copied from an Instagram post by Ned Bunnell - "Without powering up the camera, select "Movie" mode on the top mode dial. Then simultaneously press the "Playback" and "DISP" buttons. Then use the right 4-way control button to go to the second screen which shows your shutter count." Works like a charm. Thanks to you Ned if you see this.

DA 15mm + 21mm or Ricoh GR II

At the time that I bought the GR back in 2013, I also had the DA 21 which I really, really liked. After using the GR and comparing images from both I ended up selling the DA 21 and used the money to buy the GW-3 wide angle convertor (stellar images @ 21mm equiv) for the GR and have never regretted it. That 21mm equiv would come in handy in the smallish European environments. Were I to travel to Europe again I would take the GR + GW-3 + DSLR with the F50 1.7 and everything would fit in a smallish sling bag. Good luck with whatever you decide to do. ps make sure you have back-up batteries for the GR as they typically don’t last as long as your Dslr.

Hello Kevin. I know that you are a GR user as I am and I've seen your fine work on flickr. I've recently moved and now have some large blank walls and I'm planning to make some big prints as well. I was wondering, have you done any large prints from the GR ?

Lens hood for the FA 20-35

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I'll check them out and give an update here. I did look at eBay and a seller in Japan had one but their seller feedback wasn't very good so I passed on that one for now. I really like the FA 20-35 on my K-1, I use it mostly for outdoor landscapes thus the desire for a hood. Some prices seem kind of outlandish, but maybe that's what I'll need to pay for one.

I've been looking for the original hood, PH-RBA 58, and it seems to be like searching for the yeti. There is one seller on ebay with an estimated ship date of several weeks out, but his feedback is very sketchy. KEH doesn't list any.

Does anyone know of another source or an alternative hood to use in place of the original ?

What's up with the GR II?

On another forum there are a few people who placed orders for the GRii a few weeks ago with B&H and they are saying that they were given an arrival date of December 10th. I love my GR and it's getting a little long in the tooth so I have been waiting to see if there will be a GRiii before replacing mine. I didn't upgrade to the GRii since there isn't a difference in the lens or sensor from the GR. If Ricoh decides not to continue the line I'll hopefully then get the GRii (I hope Ricoh doesn't discontinue the line without any announcement :(

Item for Sale
Pentax DA* 16-50

Asking Price
325.00 USD

Item Location
Pennsylvania (United States)

Item Description
Iíve had this fine weather sealed lens for quite a while but havenít given it much use lately, so itís time to let it go. I noticed a few months ago that the SDM was failing and so I sent it to a forum member to convert it to screw drive. It now focuses quickly and accurately.

It will come with the original front and rear caps, hood, pouch and box.

Front and rear elements are clean and mark free. Except for one particular speck of dust (which I have shown in one of the pictures), tiny bits of internal dust are present, but honestly they are often even hard to see. None of them affect images in any way.

Itís quite inspiring to shoot a quality pro lens on our weather sealed bodies in lousy weather, Iíll miss it. I have excellent feedback here and so you can be confident that you will get this as stated here.

Just received my DA*16-50 back from Uncle Vanya. Converted to screw drive, works perfectly and I think the auto focus works as well as it ever did. Thanks Uncle Vanya.

Over 100 miles away, which is the distance from my home, Pittsburgh, to Cleveland Ohio. Dodd Camera in Cleveland is awesome. Many Brands, good inventory. Top Notch sales staff. It's a pleasure to make the 2 hour drive up there just to walk around and soak up the goodness.
