What's the best Pentax prime?

'tis so. Each of us has our subset of gear and preference of what to shoot, and even two with identical gear will rate their lenses in different order. All answers are for entertainment value; I cannot imagine gleaning my ideal next lens from these chats. Still fun to chime in - though I doubt I've sold anyone on the K17 :o

I know how you feel, I always feel like I've kicked a puppy when I sell Pentax gear :( it makes me smile, it's friendly and it did nothing wrong - but I want what it cannot manage easily.

Old lenses are great fun and your perspective isn't skewed by modern declarations of what a lens 'should' do. Hope we don't contaminate you. :o

Welcome, and enjoy! :)

For Sale: Panasonic GX1 (micro43) body + lens

Item for Sale
Panasonic GX1 (micro43) body + lens

Asking Price
170.00 USD

Item Location
western Washington state (United States)

Item Description
This black Lumix GX1 is not getting much use so it needs to go for bank-balance improvements. It is available with either the Sigma 30/2.8 EX DN (black) or the most recent Lumix 14-42ii OIS kit zoom (silver) - your choice. In 35mm terms that's a 60mm or 28-84mm field of view.

The GX1 is an excellent little camera with 16Mpix 4Thirds sensor, simple but effective touch screen and many nice controls and programmable Fn buttons. When you want small and talented it's a great choice. Each lens comes with 2 caps caps; the 30/2.8 has box and soft case, the 14-42 comes with hood.

Body is in VG and both lenses are in EX condition.
I gave the LED screen a good cleaning. When I received the camera as it had the fungus-like sludge on the touchscreen. (sample image / thread at DPRvw) The screen is clean and much more useable than before, but some fine cleaning-scratches can be seen when screen is dark. Many threads online about GX1 screen 'delamination' or coating issues. Considering how it looked before this is a real improvement! :eek: I have not added a fresh screen protector at this point - it may help, or perhaps not.

Camera comes with 1 Lumix + 1 generic/Wasabi battery, charger and strap plus body cap.

That first one felt a bit 'brassy' though the Steens do have that tint as I recall. The second one feels better in that way to me.
That first one has a great sky so maybe I'd brush that in as a layer? I play so little in PP that I'm using terms I barely know; most would say that's just me on a typical day though :eek:

Item for Sale
several lenses, FL from 10-250mm

Asking Price
130.00 USD

Item Location
western Washington state (United States)

Item Description


Lenses in search of a new home or two. All are in excellent optical condition, only body wear determines ratings.
Caps front & back.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Film/FF capable throughout the range!
$ 50 - Sigma 28-200 Asph EX-
$ 45 - Rikenon XR 70-150/4 VG




$ 35 - Pentax/Tamron DA 18-250 manual focus only (EX but for focus, no hood)




SOLD $180 - Pentax F 17-28 Fisheye
SOLD $140 - Tamron 10-24mm (no hood)
SOLD $ 50 - 50-200mm DA∙L WR



  • F17-28 has builtin 'hood' and is an excellent lens. Grip feels like it's 30 years old.. otherwise excellent. Has the Asahi Pentax metal lens cap!

  • Tamron 10-24 does great work but came w/o hood. Film/K-1 can use from about 13mm upward, so a real bargain ultrawide for any camera.

  • Sigma 28-200 is in amazing shape, has aperture ring for adaptation purposes.

  • Rikenon XR has internal zoom and built-in lens shade. Close focus perhaps 1:5? Takes 52mm filters. A fun little lens.

  • DAL 50-200 WR bought here, works great. No hood.

  • DA18-250 really won't focus as the AF pin fell out during inspection. Former owner on the forums said AF was dying anyway, so it needs service - or someone with patience to focus manually. No zoom creep to speak of, and excellent copy in all ways but focusing.

Very nice! :) I really liked the corona's asymmetry, my only other eclipse in 1979 had a very circular corona with a squashed side. Sunspots and other activity makes for better eclipses :cool:

Item for Sale
Pentax-F 17-28mm fisheye, Sigma 18-50 HSM OS

Asking Price
180.00 USD

Item Location
western Washington state (United States)

Item Description
A few too many lenses covering the same ground, so time to part with a few.

$200 now $180! F 17-28mm f/3.5-4.5 fisheye
SMC Pentax-F 17-28mm F3.5-4.5 Fish-Eye Reviews - F Zoom Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database
This is a well-liked lens, and for good reasons! Very light and compact, works for digital and film, aperture ring for adaptations. Even on APSc bodies the field is really wide, you get the scale of 17mm but coverage close to the DA14 - with all the fun distortion of a fisheye of course. :p
I have the Tamron 10-24 with less distortion that I shall keep - I prefer the Pentax lens but cash is important and I feel the 17-28 is more likely to sell.

$SOLD Sigma 18-50mm DC f/2.8-4.5 OS HSM

I read online of someone who swapped their E500's color sensor for a monochrome one. That's a bit of time and effort but they loved the results from it.

Ah here it is direct from its creator.
