Apologies. I erred in posting this as a CCD image; turns out that the E-510 was CMOS. I didn’t remember, and made a mistake when I looked up the sensor specs. I’ll go to time-out now...

Surely someone can use this. Considering free shipping and PayPal fees, this seems to be a decent asking price. Give it a home, eh?

I've just found this thread and am only a little way in, but I fear that I've found distant relatives. Some lovely images early on. The color rendition reminds me much of the Olympus E-1, which had a Kodak (?) 5MP CCD sensor. It produced breathtaking skin tones. Working with a 1.25" LCD was a bear, but the viewfinder was bright enough.

Recommendations for DSLR body to use with MF K- and M42 lenses

Yeah, I'm a little thick...
Having gone from the E.x Olympus DSLRs to the M4/3 cameras, I forget that I'm now using an EVF... I do really like focus peaking and view magnification. Still researching, but I guess that rules out cameras with poor live view.

Greets!

I ended up on the forum because I got drawn into using vintage manual focus Pentax lenses. I don't remember which came first, Takumars or M-series, but I've ended up with a fair number of these gems. I've been shooting them adapted to Olympus mirrorless bodies. I went to Olympus when I went digital a buncha years ago, and stayed with Micro 4/3 because of the IBIS. I used to be able to hand hold a Series 1 70-210 at the long end, but those days are gone, so stabilization is a key factor for me. The OM-Ds remind me a lot of my beloved MX.

With that as background, I have sort of loosely started thinking about looking for a native Pentax body to use with the vintage lenses. I don't think I want to go FF because of size and weight. No need for video capability. I'm in the same boat as another advice seeker in a different thread; there's no Pentax dealer in the whole of NC.

I'm starting to poke through the comparison feature here, but guidance and opinions would be welcome, as at this point, I don't know what I don't know. Thanks!

Item for Sale
Early Super Takumar 28mm f3.5 58mm lens hood and case

Asking Price
29 USD

Item Location
Near Charlotte NC (United States)

Item Description
This beautiful hood is for the big front 28mm Super Takumar. Big front meaning 58mm filter thread. This was relatively uncommon when I found it. To be honest, what I used it on was the 16mm Fish Eye Takumar, which it fits just fine, and does not vignette on (at least) Micro 4/3 cameras. That's an extra use for this hood, as it's made for the 28.

There are a couple nicks on the rim, but nothing that a Sharpie wouldn't take care of. Clamps on securely. Comes complete with the original leather case, which shows some age, but still looks good and works fine.

Please ask questions if you have 'em. Price includes PayPal fees and USPS shipping.

Item for Sale
Pentax-M/A 28/35mm hood w/Case

Asking Price
22.00 USD

Item Location
Near Charlotte NC (United States)

Item Description
This is the OE 49mm mount clip-on hood for the following M (and I'm pretty sure A) series lenses:

28mm f2.0, 2.8, 3.5
35mm f2.8, 3.5

Few signs of wear. Clips on securely. Does what it should.

The case is in decent shape but isn't pretty. This one is a lighter duty item than the nice Takumar cases, but it does the job. Snap still works.

Please contact me with any questions. Can usually ship within two business days. PayPal fees included in price.
