300 2.8 w/teleconv vs 150-450

I did.... a few years ago.... simply metered through camera with my F*300/4.5 v's 150-450.... some others might also have tried it..... was a bit of an issue for me with the K3... not so much with K-1.

I can check it again now quite easily... as I have 2 K-1s... if worth while for you.


Anyway.... I don't regret getting the 150-450.... really suits the K-1.... one would really need a specialised purpose to want 300/2.8 on a modern camera such as the K-1.... or to just want one!

Isolation 150-450 style

As a 150-450 owner.... must just point out that the zoom would eat at least one more stop of light for the same aperture..... it's light transmitance isn't great....

Here, I'm just returning from a parallel world, through one of the great down under, hidden gateways.

This one led to a world where Pentax is the world market dominator of all things photographic.... making me a born again pentaxian.

I'm probally the sort that would buy this.... probally on a trip to Korea to skip import tax and have a holiday as well..... stuff it in my suit case and have them mail the metal case home empty..... I suffer but one obstacle to such a plan (her name is Anna). My F*300 is all for it though......would make my DFA 150-450 my light weight zoom..... quite a feat in itself.

maybe swing by Japan on the way back

Being a bit older.... I sorta see the Flinders in my mind in a water colour or sometimes oil painting way..... having grown up with that imagery. I think it influences my raw developement in a way....

Pentax is a tricky brand if your a new new gear hobbyist.... looking for ongoing fixes well after the basic needs are met. Anyway, good luck with that.

Maybe develop a camera bag or strap fettish...... can still be a Pentaxian and meet your "needs".

Which 3rd party PK lenses you treasure the most?

Mmm.... maybe I'm getting too old and sentimental......... but....... for me.... some lenses are basic transactions..... others are gifted to you under special circumstances...... say a gift from a loved one.... this puts a lens a few rungs up the special ladder. Manage to grab a few great shots with it.... and then it's likely to be hard to knock off by a "transactional" lens.

Whilst probally just a competant lens, the Sigma 70-200/2.8 HSM OS is this for me. I could never sell it.... at least not until after my funeral.... as it has taken my "wake" photo.

I was given two weeks leave by my wife..... and allowed to take the van if I promised not to bring it back smelly.

Camped in some pretty places..... with some comfort.



Off course, wife said van stinked when I got back. I blamed the curries she made me take.
