The K10D Club!

absolutely. I frequently struggled with the ISO of my K10d and that was really the only reason for getting the K5. After shooting the K5 a while, I was frustrated that my photography simply didn't look as vibrant. Since photography and forum participation has its ups and downs in frequency, it took a bit for me to realize it was the camera sensor differences. Thankfully I didn't get rid of the K10d and the shutter count is pretty low yet.

If they could manage to get a camera that produces the colors of the K10d and the modern high ISO specs, the K5 would be in the back-up stable.

Pentax and Takumar mounts interchangeable on the 500mm and 1000mm?

They are. I had both at one point in M42. Actually, for a short time, I had two 500mm and one 1000mm while sorting out my long glass needs (wants). From what I remember, the K-mount end supposedly swapped with the M42.

For Sale - Sold: Pentax da 12-24mm used $390 plus shipping

Selling my 12-24 as I've switched to carrying primes. Great shape. It was at the pentax repair shop a couple years ago for replacing the ring the hood snaps onto. They replaced that, gave it a cleaning and a good bill of health. While they were waiting for parts, I got a 15 mm limited to compliment my 21mm and this lens has pretty much sat on my shelf since then.

I am located in SE Wisconsin, ship via USPS

Payment via PayPal.








Asking $390 plus shipping

Is it worth the upgrade from the A 50 f/1.7 to f/1.4?

I don't think you'll be upset. I have the M50 f1.7, the SMC 55 f1.8, DA40. I had an FA50 f1.4, which came before all of those other lenses, which was my first lens after the kit lens. Taught me the value of a fast lens, but the rest spoke to me more and the FA appreciated in value from what I paid for it new, so it funded other LBA.

sorry for the delay in sample photos requested of a dark well lit object at f11. Between work scheduling, the weather not cooperating and a lack of dark sun facing objects, it took a bit. The sample is the rusty underside of a Jeep hood in direct full sunlight. First exposure is green button metering on K10 and second is my speeding up the shutter a bit.

I've been waiting for the sun to come out. Looks like today I'll finally have some conditions to test the lens as requested. I've never had a problem with it in function, but I'm always up to seeing if there's some scenario that makes the damage actually show in a photo.

While I thoroughly enjoy my DA* 300mm, I would have jumped on this had I not just spent as much as I did on that DA.

Alan- you're right. My DA*300 came in today. It is sharp, but it is surprising how well the M* holds its own against it. I did see the dimension and weight differences in the reviews, but once you have the DA* mounted, you know its there compared to the M*. Still for sale as I'm pleased with the comfort of the weather sealing on the DA*.

Condition is only listed a poor due to it being ugly and the rear element scratches. After comparing to the DA*, I'd be very surprised if those scratches are harming IQ at all. I just saw how the example photo looks on my work monitor. It isn't a proper representation of what this lens does.

Item for Sale
Pentax M* 300mm

Asking Price
200 USD

Item Location
Kenosha, WI (United States)

Item Description
This lens is has been around the block a time or two or 5 according to its looks. The rear element is all scratched up and the finish has a nice well worn patina. The front element looks good. There a few dust specs inside that aren't hurting iq. Focus is smooth. I've never noticed any effect on image quality due to the scratches. I included a couple boring handheld samples. I may have more to post from the last trip to the marsh once I get them transferred to my computer. The IQ and size of this lens is what convinced me my SMC Tak long glass doesn't fit my style. I guess the reason I'm selling it is with the funds from the other sales, I can get a DA* 300mm and have a sealed 300mm that maybe someday Pentax will get a proper sealed TC for which will complete my telephoto needs (I think). With the DA* 300 now on order, I trust that it will be at least comparable in IQ to this lens, so no sense in having two.

Lens comes with front and rear caps. Front cap is not Pentax.
