Sigma dc macro 17-70mm f2.8-4.5

Hi,
I used to have 3x Sigma's 17-70 2.8 - 4.5 , loved them all , used them all.
Eventually one went to my niece with my trustworthy K-5 years ago.
The second one is permanently attached to my K-30 , still enjoy to use it.
The third one was sold after I have purchased SIGMA 17-70 MM F2.8-4 DC MACRO HSM CONTEMPORARY
Both of those lenses are very enjoyable to use and very good performers.

Tamron SP F 1.4x AF is my most used teleconverter, it is Full Frame
Occasionally I use Pentax HD DA 1.4X AW AF cropped sensors only and Vivitar 2x Macro PKA ( for MACRO photos )
I also have Tamron SP F 2x AF , never use it.

Move to Perth, I never ever had a problem with fungus ( I mean new fungus appearing on my gear).
Do not buy any photographic equipment from Queensland!
Most of gear purchased from there had a fungus although sellers were swearing that all gear is clean.

Years ago I managed to purchase the original Pentax adaptor with English instruction and original Pentax pouch, from Pentax.com,.au for AU$32.
Years later I found one on AU EBay for AU$24, the original product but with pouch and instruction missing.It was very easily to recreate them.
I also purchase a number of Chinese copies, some will focus to infinity , some not. In the meantime the price of the original product gone through the roof:
Pentax K-Mount Adapter 30120 | Ricoh Australia
There is number of excellent lenses with M42 mount so if you find one reasonably priced just go for it. There will be harder and harder to buy them.

kind regards

On Flickr you just drop into upload screen, see attached.
But pricing is getting more and more confusing and unclear so not sure what I will do in the future.

I use 10 yers old 17" MacBook Pro ( Sierra 10.13.6 with 8 GB DDR3 2.66 GHz Intel i7) with Lightroom 5.7 works great.
Recently upgraded to 250GB Solid State drive as the old HDD has died.
You can not buy new 17" MacBook Pro's anymore.
As a back up I have MacBook Pro 15.4" Retina Mid 2012 2.6 GHz Quad-Core Intel i7 8GB DDR3 Catalina 10.15.3 with 500GB Flash Storage with Lightroom 5.7
And experimenting with Luminar 4 ( cost AU$ 119 for two computers ), Mac Photos ( free) , digiKam (free ) , Darktable ( free) and Topaz Studio 2 ( US99 ).
Still happy with Lightroom 5.7

DA 18 - 135, I rediscovered this lens.
With a broken arm and 4x operations, full titanium reconstruction, fifth one is coming.
Small , very light, love it!
Goes very well with K-s1 ( although not WR , well we do not get much rain in Western Australia )

Pentax D FA 70-210mm f/4.0 ED SDM WR Lens 21217 | Ricoh Australia
I will not be getting one in a big hurry.
in the box:
Pentax HD PENTAX-D FA 70-210mm f/4 ED SDM WR Lens
Pentax O-LC67 67mm Lens Cap
Pentax Rear Lens Cap (B) for Bayonet Mount Lenses
PH-RBP67 Lens Hood

When mounted on an APS-C-format camera, its focal length range is extended to the equivalent of 107mm to 322mm in the 35mm format. Its outstanding portability makes outdoor photography simpler, more effortless and more enjoyable. When coupled with the HD PENTAX-DA AF REAR CONVERTER 1.4X AW, you can further extend the focal length range to cover a wider range of subjects.
