We call her "Jilly". She's a baseball dog. Attended about 55 games this year and made some road trips to tournaments. She is an important member of the fan base and she knows it.

I love my K3iii, I've determined. I hadn't really tested it, but I did take photos all summer of my son's baseball games and I'm just looking at them and I'm really happy with how they came out. I'm going to post a few of the non-baseball ones for now. The sports photos made me really happy too, though.

Gonna give this one a little Monday nudge. I'm happy to move this to eBay if no one is interested, but I'd rather keep it in the family if someone has been wanting a limited prime.

This is one of the coolest lenses I've ever had...a 70mm pancake! Who does that?

As you all know, an astonishingly good portrait lens that seems to work well on full frame, despite not being designed or advertised for that. I've taken some good photos with it, but honestly, I just never bonded with it. I think it comes down to a) not really being a portrait photographer and b) not leaving the house committed to shooting fast at this specific focal range.


You all know what this lens is, if you're looking for one and mine appeals to you, let's get it mounted to your camera rather than sitting in my bag.

Original box, bag and hood with both lens caps.

I'm honing my lens stable and am letting 2 really good F Series zooms go. I've had each of these for several years and have been 100% happy with them, they've just been pushed to the side by other lenses.

This is a lens that has me smiling and giggling every time I leave the house with it. It’s just a bit bigger than a 50mm prime and fast enough and the perfect zoom range for a walk-around lens. Excellent photo quality and a shockingly good quazi-macro range which is nice, fun, and a great way to blur your backgrounds. Great clarity, depth, and those astonishing 1980s Pentax colors. I have the original box for this one. There is a tiny bit of peeling on the exterior rubber (pictured). It could be glued back down, it just never bothered me.

F 70-210/4-5.6 $35

This is another great lens, in context. I passed on 2 or 3 copies of this lens until I found this clean one and I used it mostly to photograph youth baseball. I ultimately replaced it with a Tamron 70-200/2.8 zoom which about 3x bigger and heavier. This guy is easy to walk around with and I kept it for a few years after acquiring the new lens for that exact reason. I actually prefer it in several ways, but extra speed helps for those baseball photos when the light isn't ideal.

I will sell these two lenses for $60 as a bundle. I'll propose splitting UPS or FedEx ground shipping. You can pay to get it faster if you are in a hurry. If you'd like it outside of the US, let's talk about it first and I'll ask you to cover the shipping.

Also see my listing for a DA70/2.4 limited for more shared shipping.

I'm on my second copy of the F50/1.7. Both punch well above their weight class. I've sworn that I won't part with this one. My only other 50 at the moment is the manual focus K50/1.4, which is wonderful in it's own way.

I've not been good about taking photos this year and I've been worse about posting them. I did snap these today and since they are taking up precious Flickr space, thought I would share them just in case it stoked something in someone.

This 10" Barney Kessel followed me home today and I snapped a few of it with the lens that I had on to shoot some winter baseball. Enjoy.
