My pro: I can stop searching for the elusive lens that can do on APS-C the same as my 20 / f1.7 on FF :p

I had a Samsung HZ35W p&s with 3" AMOLED screen, very usable in bright sunlight.
The K-01 being born without EVF should have used a similar screen technology instead of LCD.

So maybe for K-02?

Count update - store now has 2,852,000 listings.
That's 12,000 added in 9 hours = one every 2.7 seconds :)

Ebay will need to knock it on its head soon.

I looked just now it's gone to 94,000 pages = 2,840,000 item listings.
Isn't there an upfront listing fee, just 20c each that's over half a million dollars :eek:

I'm surprised it hasn't crashed Ebay already.

Probably another case of mistaken identity with the 31 Ltd, like the DA40 XS a few days ago.

Item for Sale
Like-new K-r with 2 lenses DA-L18-55 & DA 50-200

Asking Price
Au$440

Item Location
Perth (Australia)

Item Description
I've been given a K-01 present so selling my little used K-r plus two lenses. It was
bought new & has been out with me on a single 3-week overseas trip no more than
1,000 clicks. Asking A$440 plus shipping for the lot (which is like less than $300
for a like-new Kr with box & accessories).

The box shows (apart from the DA-L18-55) a DA-L 55-300 however in this sale is
a 50-200 instead. Please note it's not DA-L, it's a DA so comes with metal mount +
quick shift focus.

I prefer to sell to someone in Perth so that buyer can check out the items for
satisfaction first plus I don't have to pack/ship. However if someone interstate or
overseas is keenly interested I will oblige. Shipping is at cost by Australia Post,
I guesstimate around $20 to $80 depending on your location.
(Edit: to Europe could be up to A$80 for 2kg package as I've just found out).

Payment methods:
Cash for local, Bank deposit for interstate, Paypal (net) for overseas.

It's three-speed 1.2.3 :D

Also very considerate of website to include a warning if your camera is in excess of 110-120V plugging this lens in may result in fire and/or injury.

Hard to believe a film-sized Limited, let alone the most pricey one among them, vignetting on APS-C sensor. Can you point to some links, thanks.

Best for sharpest?
I have bought/used/sold/traded several including the three FA Ltd amigos, DA35, FA35/2 etc. and found my DFA-50/2.8 macro to be the sharpest (even at non-macro distance) among these. Too sharp for pleasant-looking people photos though :(

There may be no concrete evidence, however if one MIJ and one AIV are being sold at the same shop same price it's a safe bet that 9 out of 10 persons who have posted in this thread would automatically go for the MIJ, despite them saying there's no difference :p

Long lens - what effect is this?

Thanks everyone for your thoughts.

I forgot to mention it was ISO 200 in bright light unlikely iso noise, no tripod but pressed hard against a tree & ~1/500sec unlikely due to shakes, f/6.7 from 100 yards the dof must be several metres I don't think I could have missed focus.

I will read more about halo and chroma noise as suggested. Is there anything we can do to minimize these effects?

No no, the sign is yellow letters on blue as shown, I'm just curious about the yellow dots/artifacts on the blue blackground where they shouldn't be. Thanks

Hi, above is a test shot of my cheapo lens Sigma A400/5.6 , taken @6.7 from 100 yards, no filter.
Not bad for the price, I think.

However at 100% crop it seems to be spraying yellow paint all over the sign.
What is that due to: flare? diffraction? lens resolution? or something? Thanks.

In the interest of clearing any misinformation, Aust imposes no duty on camera/electronic products. Theoretically what applies is GST @10% on all non-food stuff but thanks to a rare ATO's generosity they let packages
