Love the photos.. Fields of yellow canola beside blue flax beside green wheat make the summer so bright.. I didnt think anyone still grew rape seed. It smells so bad... GMO canola for everyone around here!

Also were you are in the world matters... Pentax in Canada is cheaper than most of the world I have noticed. Some places pay way more for items like downunder. Do you remember what you bought them for? That is a fair place to start as if you paid that amount someone else likely will too... accounting for changes in market, condition of lens, etc...

Well I got my first SLR when I got my father's K1000, lucky for my boy I am more of a gear head so well I was 28 years old when I got my first SLR, he is 18 months and burning film in a 645... he loves the plunger to remote fire the camera... it goes 'boom!'


Dad the deer are that way, not back here...


Aim roughly where the deer will be


Ready for them to tread the needle and walk into the frame...

Tried that... tried poking at the autofocus thinger(screw), it felt normal.... what gets me is the auto focus seems to be engaged well the switch is clearly set to MF... so i guess there is nothing left but to throw the camera at a wall and ask the Misses if I can have another...

My KX will only AF. (unless the lens has quick shift), however, the switch is stuck (will not move with reasonable to slightly more that reasonable force) at MF. Any ideas? I have wanted an excuse for a K5... so do I have a paper weight that will not MF only AF?

Like the title says... doesn't have to look good, but I prefer that it works and has caps. I will take either or both the 45-85 and 80-160.

Don't want to have to pay for anything too expensive to cross the boarder... but if you have something you just gotta move and you are willing to help with shipping I will buy world wide...

I only went with the 31mm so I could use it with my film cameras... which to me was worth 4xish as much... PS I do enough the 31mm but if I was only a digital shooter I would have gone with a pancake because it fits nicely in a coat pocket with a KX.

Aerial Photo Zoom lens 30-110mm f/4 ?

I have only had a few attempts shooting from my buddies plane... but I find the older lens are great... I am shooting at f/8 ish and infinity, thus the older M & A series are great... rubbber lens hood helps, as mentioned... and the older lens are often very sharp accross the center of the frame... I used a 75-150 with great success... I prefered it over my 50-135 which I found too large for a small space...

Pentax K-5 or Sony A580 for baby pictures

Last Sat my boy was napping and looking darn cute for a nap... I went into his room... I was Ninja quite... I got my 4x5 all set-up... focused... light meter set... load my film... I needed to adjust my shutter speed on my old cop shutter two notches... should have been nothing... click click... not even a click... like a pin dropping and bouncing twice... sure enough like a bolt of lightning... he awake... straight up... and huge smile... happy to see me... moving around like the daring he is... but my ISO 25 film and 6 sec shutter suddening seemed useless... so personally I don't know about worrying about waking her up with a flash... at least you'd have the photo... :)

I enjoy this one as I like the rocks curving... but something about how the fence hits on the right side is not right with me.... I think you may have needed to get the 'end' of the fence into the right side of the frame to really make this work... but the rocks save it...

well macros are one thing... but you are asking about short - med teles to start with.

I believe most/all macro lens are design to be best at their near focus and the close they get to infinity the less sharp they are... so using a macro 'tele' as a 'tele' may not give you the results you hope for... now saying that... most people pixel pep too much and likely the 70-200 will solve you needs AND be easier on the wallet vs having several lens...
