Good choice, congrats!


(All these good old lenses deserved full frame camera and I'm happy that it became reality...)

I'd get rid of all video functions. Not sure if that would make K1 cheaper, though.

Sigma 500mm f4.5 is fine, but I think it's no longer produced / available. At least here in Europe stocks are empty and local Sigma dealer answered that this lens has been discontinued in Pentax K-mount.






As DA560 owner I can say that I like this lens, but - exactly as some of the reviews admit - its special construction makes it difficult to shoot handhold. I occasionally do, but you can't really bear it longer than some minutes. It's much more suitable for tripod shooting.





That's right (unless the light conditions are optimal). DA560 is f5.6. That's another reason why I cry for lens like Sigma 500 mm f4.5, which could (at least I hope so) make usage of 1.4x TC much more possible.

DA*300 + 1.4x TC is IMHO the best set of compromises (at least when talking about APS-C shooting). Not too heavy for walking around and 420mm (i.e. equivalent of 630mm on full frame) already provides some nice reach, especially if you're able to get "close enough" to the object.


That being said, I'd like to mention that we deserve Pentax version of such a lens like Sigma 500mm f4.5. This lens (+TC) would be a perfect combination for K-1 or its successor.

No doubts. Then there are several wonderful vintage CZJ and Soligor lenses, too. :)


Some more with Helios 58mm:

Thanks, Paolo!
There are several M42 lenses I really like. Pentacon 135mm and 200mm (both are 15 blades aperture version), Tair 135mm (20 blades), Helios 85mm, Meyer-Optik Görlitz Primoplan 58mm (14 blades), Meyer-Optik Görlitz Trioplan 50mm (12 blades), Carl Zeiss Jena Pancolar 50mm, etc..
There are also some other lenses which I never bought because their price today is more than tall. Like the famous Trioplan 2.8/100. Or the rare Komura lenses.
Anyway, shooting with M42 lenses is always fun.

Helios 58mm
