I just bought a Pentax lens for 350 euro trough Ebay in Japan from Five Star Camera. Good experiance with that company.

But keep in mind you will have to pay Vat. I had to pay 100.41 euro Vat. (i live in The Netherlands)

So, my experiance, buying trough Ebay in Japan isn't a problem. And if you don't know the seller, just look at the reviews from other buyers.

I modded my remote with a small mylar. Is very easy to do. Just remove the 3 screws, open the remote, cut two small grooves in the cover, put the mylar cord in it and close the remote again.

I have modified the 60-250 myself, and there really almost no visable vignetting at FF.

The difference is really unbelievable. It really changed it to a full frame lens. It now really has become a D-FA* 60-250.

I tested the E6000 before at an old trow-away-lens. Drying time is 42 hours, and after 72 hours it is at it's strongest. So, after 72 hours i tried to remove it from the glass of that old lens with no problem, and no resideu.

In the mean time i ordered both type of baffels, and already recieved them and removed the original baffel. The 3d printed baffels where a tiny bit to large, but some very fine sandpaper solved that problem in 5 minutes.

So i used E6000 to glue the baffel to the ring. It is drying right now. This evening i can place it back in the 60-250.
I am very happy :D

I checked the specs of both E6000 and loctite, Loctite can give some problems with some type of plastics. So i guess E6000 is the better way to go. And it is also available in black

In the Sub-Forums: "Photographic Equipment for Sale" you can trough "Thread Filtering Options" select "Item Location".
You can select United States, Canada, Australia and so on and select separate country's

Is it possible to add Europe to that list. That would be a very nice and useful addition for the forum members in Europe.
We will seldom by items out of USA due to the extreme high tax fees.

But the bottom line, the K100D is a very nice camera, it was my first digital Pentax camera and at that time i was very pleased with it.

I've been looking for a print service here in The Netherlands. 3D pint services enough, but with a minimum order of 100 euro..... not really an alternative...
I think i will place the order also at Sculpteo.

it is so recognizable, got the same thing. The first look trough my K1-11 viewfinder, i almost shed a tear, it really threw me back to my old and extremely loyal MX experiance. I finally felt at home again again.

And yes, i know, i am extremely spoiled, using an MX as my first SLR after years of using a Beirette (which i still own) in my kids years

Anyone knows the filter size of the RICOH WG-6, and of course or a regular filter will be able to screw on.
I can measure the size, and comes to 36 or 37 mm, but haven't a filter available to test for the exact size and if it is possible to screw it on.

I was thinking to add a snap-on tele converter to the WG-6 with the use of a conversion ring.
