There are times I miss the AF point switch on the K-5...I wish Ricoh had kept it instead of the worthless photo/video switch...The least they could have done is make an RAW/FX button option to switch between multi-point and center point.

There is one in Syracuse (there used to be like five). There are no Sears stores left anywhere in Central New York and most of the rest in the state are closing.

Who's next? Macy's, JCPenney, or Kohls...

Sears Holdings owns both Sears and Kmart. It was founded after Kmart bought Sears. They are run as separate divisions within the one holding company.

Sears was 'toast' ever since Kmart merger: former Sears Canada CEO

He says most development is going into K FF. But 2 classes doesn't necessarily mean 2 FF cameras. It could mean 135 FF & 645 FF. Or it could mean 135 FF and APS-C. It wouldn't be all that hard to take developments for 135 FF and scale it down to APS-C...Isn't that what they basically did for the *ist D because no economically viable (for Pentax) FF sensors existed at the time?

And in 2 classes he is probably referring to lenses anyway. And who really needs to develop lenses for APS-C anyway? Nikon doesn't anymore...

I should have scrutinized the photos better before getting carried away in the bidding. I don't think I'm going to pay for this lot. Hopefully they'll get around to banning me from bidding...

I just gambled $67 after shipping on this lot of mostly garbage from Shopgoodwill

Attachment 427104

Because of this crappy photo...

Attachment 427105

It seems to be a Ricoh TLS 401 with the standard Auto Rikenon 55mm F1.4. If it's in good condition then the gamble was worth it. Though it looks like it is missing the focus ring...In fact, the focus ring is leaning up against that flash strip...

It would be nice if the never ready cases have cameras in them...The Yashica AF camera is probably just garbage, no lens either. The big lens seems to be a pre-set T-mount of some sort. It has a big dent in the barrel and focus ring...

Oh well. You know what they say about fools and their money...

There are a surprising number of camera repair shops. Maybe they aren't the exalted Eric Hendrickson, but you will probably get a working camera back...and with less of a backlog than Eric seems to be running these days.
