Catch in focus is fun! Love my Helios 44/2 for heavily saturated bokeh too. I paid $40 with full CLA

Good condition, includes both caps. Has some zoom creep and a little dust internally but doesn't seem to show up in photos.

Decent lens on both full frame and aps-c. I have many other options for this focal range and this one just sits on a shelf.

$100 shipped USPS in the USA. Payment by Google Pay (G'pay)

If I was going on a trip and taking an aps-c and only one lens, the 18-135 would be on the camera, without a doubt. It practically lived on my K-70 and later my K3ii. Size wise, it's not much larger than the 20-40 (283g and 6.9cm vs 405g and 7.6cm), and if there is some fine loss of IQ (in the 20-40mm range), the extra 2mm at the wide end and the 95mm FL on the long end would easily make up for it.

I never left the house with the 18-135 on a walkabout and wished I had a brought a different lens instead (unless it was chasing birds... hence the trusty backup, the 55-300 PLM). I loved the 20-40 LTD for the short time I actually found a use for it but didn't use it as much as I had anticipated and eventually sold it.

I just bought a Helios 44-2 2/58mm and it's too narrow with an "infinity" adapter as well. Ordered the "wrong" type of flange adapter, which I plan to just leave on the lens, so I can have CIF.

Don't the flange type short the pins, allowing CIF?

K1ii + Helios 44-2 2/58mm. Here are my first test shots with it. Of course my Misha, as always, proved to be the perfect model.

ISO 8000, unknown aperture.

I'm thinking the same thing. I miss this lens after practically giving it away (my second copy) when I switched to full frame. Still have the 55-300 PLM, tempted to buy another APS-C just for these two lenses.

Sometimes photos are like a puzzle. I bet I tried at least half a dozen crops of this one. Still not sure this is "the one".

For some reason I find tinkering with B&W in post to be almost meditative. Some thistles I originally shot in color for bokeh. K1ii + 150-450

Anyone that can master Blender well enough to pull off "bokeh" get's a "thumbs up" in my book!!! :D

I lugged out the D FA 150-450 to go bird hunting today. It actually has pretty nice bokeh, me thinks...

I liked what it did with this Sparrow... I had to shoot this one through about 3m of brush. Surprised "spot" focus actually worked that well!


OKTY2519 by oktyabr, on Flickr

Can it do macro work, in a pinch? You be the judge...
