I did not read all 64 pages of this thread - but I am a little surprised how excited people are about this lens. Considering Sigma just came out with a the 18-35mm F1.8 lens for APS-C cameras, this variable aperture F2.8-4 seems just shockingly underwhelming to me. I love that they built it in the style of the old LTD's - but the beauty of those lenses was not just the aesthetics of the lens mount but the beautiful picture quality at F1.8 and F1.9.

So what I'm curious - what is the big draw to this lens? The Sigma ranked as one of the best zoom lenses DXO ever tested and it is more than a full stop brighter than this new Pentax offering...

Both the grip and the lens have sold. Just the body remains. Price for the camera is now $100 less (no grip).

I will need to confirm the shutter count tonight but I don't think it is very high. This camera was used mostly for video

Selling my FA*s...

I sold all my Pentax gear except an IR converted *ist.
I had
- FA 10-17 (fisheye)
- DA 12-24
- DA*16-50
- FA 43 Ltd
- FA 77 Ltd
- DA* 50-135
- DA* 200 F2.8
- FA* 300mm F2.8

Now I have Canon 1Dx and 5D3 with
15mm fisheye
16-35 F2.8
24-70 F2.8
35mm F1.4
50mm F1.4
85mm F1.2
135mm F2
70-200mm F2.8
200mm F1.8

Out of ALL those lenses there are only 2 that I am absolutely in love with. The Pentax 43mm Ltd and the Canon 200mm F1.8. Both lenses ALWAYS exceeded my expectations and they are a pure joy to use. Pentax would need professional level support in addition to some fancier bodies for me to come back... But I will always miss certain aspects of my Ltd lenses

Pentax Lens Price Hike - Here we go again!

As much as I LOVED my old Pentax lenses...

Do you remember 10 years ago when people would compare Pentax to Canon L Glass and say that Pentax was AT LEAST AS GOOD.

Well guess what - Canon has re-vamped those lenses 2 or 3 times since then. The used market on the OLD (10 year old) equipment continues to fall while the NEW and REDESIGNED lenses see price increases.

It seems like Pentax feels entitled to skip the whole "new release" step in product marketing and they are happy to just jack the prices on their old stuff while pretending that the new expensive prices reflect the same modern advancement as the competition.

I'm considering selling my backup camera as well - A Canon 1D mark III. 50,000 actuations according to CPS (just back from CPS about a month ago for regular cleaning). Looks in pretty much exactly the same condition as this for $1300

I'm also planning on selling Tamron 60mm F2 Macro for Canon

Item for Sale
Canon 1D mark IV

Asking Price
3000 USD

Item Location
San Diego (United States)

Item Description
I was listing a bunch of Pentax gear here - but I'm also selling one of my Canon bodies so I figured I'd put it up on this board as well... you never know right?

This camera was purchased direct from Canon 13 months ago. It currently has ~60,000 actuations (rated to 300,000).

This is DEFINITELY a better camera than the new 5D mark III (which I also have) - but unfortunately I know longer have a need for this beautiful camera in my inventory. So we are looking for a new home...

As you can see - I take great care of my camera equipment (except my flashes... don't buy my flashes...). As far as I can tell there are no noticeable marks on the camera body. Sale includes everything that came in the box from Canon. Screen covers have been on ALL LCD displays since the camera first came out of the box

Item for Sale
Pentax K200 (NO AUTOFOCUS)

Asking Price
95 USD

Item Location
San Diego (United States)

Item Description
This is my father's camera I am selling. After I talked him into buying this camera he only took 6000 pictures before the Autofocus malfunctioned (shortly after the warranty expired). The cost of repairing the AF was going to be about $200 so he just bought a new k-r instead. He continued using the camera over the next year for macro work (manual focus anyway) but he decided he just doesn't need 2 cameras so he is getting rid of this one.

With the exception of the lack of Autofocus - this camera looks basically brand new (still less than 7000 actuations).

This is an absolutely beautiful camera for someone with lots of older glass - or someone who really enjoys macro work

This was the kit lens my father got when he bought his spotmatic in the early 70s. It has been well taken care of its entire life and still takes beautifully sharp images. The lens is m42 mount and I can't find any rear lens caps to thread on. The lens will be shipped with a "different" rear cap that does not stay on properly (it will be secured in bubble wrap)
