Sigma 400mm lens reviews

From the pictures it looks like the first version (sigma carl zeiss) as I don't see APO on the lens or paperwork.

I have had the second version and it should have APO on the outside of the lens.

I also had the third version which is the telemacro. The first 2 versions have 72mm filter threads and the third version has 77mm filter threads.

Hope this helps!

SMC FA 50mm glass issue

The elements can be un-cemented, cleaned and re-cemented but from what I was quoted to have it done, it would have to be a rare and expensive lens. The one I had quoted was going to be between 200-300 for a lens I can buy on-line , used, for around $100. I remember them saying something about them having to soak the elements in some kind of chemical to get them separated.

I elected to pass on the repair.

You may attempt he repair yourself...if you can find some online guidance.

Heavy Duty Strap Recommendation

Another vote for OpTech.

Well made and resonably priced. I didn't think I would care for a cross strap until i used one. I use a cross strap (with quick release attach points) that can be converted to a neck strap. I attach it at the upper RH mount and lower mount plate on my KP and that lets my FA* 300 hang straight down to my right when hiking/walking. I have a third quick release on a carabiner that I attach to my front beltloop and to the LH mount if the camera is bouncing around too much while walking.

If I am using my primes or I am not going for a long walk, I use the wrist strap.

Help me ID these parts that fell out of K 100 f4 macro

Just a little update. Thanks for the help here on the forums.

I was able to remove the back of the lens and find the home for the loose parts. Medex was correct and these were part of the helicoid, There was one on each side I was successful in re-assembly. Everything seems to be working.

It was loose for a long time and I was using the lens that way for years but had put the lens into storage a few years ago. I shutter (pun intended) to think what might have happened if one of the small screws or tabs had got into my camera:eek:

I don't think I will be using any lenses with loose internals again.

Attached is a picture I took today with the lens. One of the elements is just starting to get balsam separation a around the outside edge but has not got into the frame of the pictures yet. I will keep using the lens as long as I can!

I ordered the JIS screwdrivers listed here on fleabay. Precision Screwdriver Set | TD-56S Vessel JIS Made in Japan | 6 Piece Kit | eBay

They are made by Vessel and seem well made, however I would recommend getting the ones with an actual screwdriver handle on them as these you really can't get a good grip on for removing tight screws. Had to use needle nose plies on the metal section to break the screws loose. The rubber piece just slides up and down and is not secured. The JIS screwdrivers with regular handle would have been much better.

CPL with free UV filter. Both made in Japan. Excellent condition and looks to have seen little use. I acquired these with a telephoto lens years ago and never did use them. I normally don't use uv filters and the telephoto was the only one I had with 77mm threads and it was not practical to use a cpl on it.

Continental US only. Price includes shipping. No returns.

PM with questions. Thanks for looking.

Item for Sale
SMC K 28mm 3.5

Asking Price
45.00 USD

Item Location
Garner North Carolina (United States)

Item Description
Listed as damaged only because the blades are a little slow, especially when the lens is cold. They open and close when shooting they just don't "snap" like my other lenses when you flick the aperture arm. Glass and rest of lens are great. This lens is sharp wide open.

Trying to be transparent so you know what is going on with the lens. I purchased it used here on the marketplace with no mention of it being slow, probably should have sent it back. I thought I would just use it alot and loosen it up or send it to Eric Hedrickson (spelling?) for cleaning (he fixed one for me before...a 24mm...he does great work). I just didn't use it much, so thought I would offer it up. I will include a generic metal hood with purchase.
PM with questions.

Thanks!

Item for Sale
Pentax KP Battery Grip D-BG7

Asking Price
124.00 USD

Item Location
North Carolina (United States)

Item Description
New in box battery grip for Pentax KP. Only installed once to check function. I purchased this with my KP because I was worried about battery life, but for my kind of shooting, it is not an issue. I tend to like the small size of the KP without the grip and don't see myself using it.

Item for Sale
SMC Pentax 55mm F1.8 K Series Lens

Asking Price
40.00 USD

Item Location
North Carolina (United States)

Item Description
With 2 tak 50mm's and Pentax-F 50mm for when I need/want auto-focus, I am not using the 55 much. I thought I would post and see if there were any interest. This lens is issue free and is in very good shape. Very little dust for a lens this age, glass is great. Excellent photos with this lens.

Here is a link to a photo album with some samples. The pictures starting with the Chattanooga Bridge on from Oct 2018 on are definitely with this lens and I believe the ones from May of 2018 are also with this one. The first two flower pictures from 2016 are with a previous copy that I sold when I got a better copy of the lens...this one!
