So I dropped my 50-135. Now it sounds like a rainmaker. Well not quite but the a lens inside has dislodged and it looks like it may be chipped.

Can this be fixed? Who and where do you send the lens to have glass replaced? Is it worth it?

The SDM seems to be working still. Perhaps it can serve as spares for someone who has SDM issues. Please let me know your thoughts.

During August and September the West Coast National Park in South Africa bursts into a vast array of colour as Spring brings with it a landscape of flowering fynbos. Stunning part of a beautiful country. Used a Lee .9 Hard grad filter and Lightroom for adjustments.

Thank you for the nominations guys. I really appreciate the comments. Good luck to everyone. I wish there was a way to upload the high resolution version. It does look a lot better.

I took this photo in Langebaan on the west coast of South Africa. It is a magic location and very popular with tourists. I spotted this shipwreck a while back and it is only a 5 minute drive away from the hustle and bustle of the town centre. Not many people are aware of it but I was so happy to photograph it. I made use of a Lee Filters 0.9 ND filter + 0.9 ND Grad to get the milky effect on the water. Setting on my K-5 were: ISO 100, 8secs, f/16 with a 18mm focal length. Really hope it stands a chance!

I'm not sure how many of you saw the post I posted yesterday but Amazon had a blip and a bunch of us managed to pick up the Pentax DA* 300 f/4 for 585.00 inlcuding postage. The price is now back up to 987. That price clinched the deal for me and I'm sure I'll be as happy as can be when my DA300 arrives. :-)

That's awesome... and contradicts everything I said in my previous post :-) This means that the guys in the US can perhaps ship it to an uncle in Canoodle... :)
At first I thought there was only one left but it seems you can order as many as you like! Pentax smc DA 300mm f/4.0 ED (IF) SDM Lens

Amazon will not handle Grey Imports... if they ship and sell it, it will be under European Guarantee. They have a very strict international trade policy. That's why US customers can't buy on Amazon UK and visa vera.

They have a history of honoring prices offered. I emailed the guy on another forum who originally posted it and said that he had received his lens today. Because it's from Amazon it's free shipping too. Below is my order. :-)

I know... I've been looking for a long lens and toying with the Bigma but at this price I could not refuse. It seems that delivery may take a little longer but that's fine. Happy days :-)
