Do I have to keep my FA*80-200 2.8?

LOVED mine, but sold it. It was way too heavy for me.

If the weight is not an issue, keep it. NOTHING else comes close to its image making.

As most people have said; the price is the key.

At $1,600 it will NOT do well, no matter how good it is. They could win a HUGE market share if it came in at under $1,000... just like the K-x which blew away the competition in specs AND price.

From what I've read, the price is pretty competitive in Japan and Europe. Maybe those are the markets they want to win over?

Adam, I wished you had not moved the topic... however, I understand.

There is NO information about pricing and availability of K-5 in the home page !!! How about 645D availability? Have you talked to Pentax US?

1- Yes, Mike Johnston says, the Pentax USA has said the 645D US availability news is NOT accurate.
2. Amazon having both K-5, and K-5 kit at the SAME price of $1600
3. People here in the forums say, the reps at the show mentioned $1,400 price for US
4. Yen value is no different for Nikon or Pentax... yet we see a WIDE discrepancy in the difference of prices between Europe and US

It feels to me, someone (in Pentax) wants to kill the new products before they hit the street.

As a Pentaxian, this past week has been very frustrating.

I had NEVER seen, a large company, with so much to gain, and after years of design and development by it's hard working employees.... allow marketing dept. to F$#& this up so bady....
  • How/Who decided on the price of K-5?

  • Is DPR in charge of your pricing?

  • We still don't know what the price of K-5 is !!!! :(

  • Do you have any one to proof read the press releases ?

  • Is 645D coming to US or not?

  • Who the hell approved those stupid "grade school level" videos?


Who is in charge? People SHOULD lose their jobs over this.

At least, put out a clarification on dates and prices, to save face :o

New Pentax D FA 100mm F2.8 Macro WR Announced

This seems to be photoshoped...

HOWEVER,

I had a conversation with one of the Pentax executives when the K-7 came out. While taking about lens and prices, he mentioned the next Pentax lens would be a ~100mm Macro :)

So, there WILL be a new Macro lens, and I would think it could be a "Limited".

Thanks Frank :)

The 80-200 is a gem. A heavy gem that is :o
I would never sell this lens, if it wasn't for the weight. I'm trying to make my kit as small as possible;
K-x, DA15, DA35, for now.

I've heard ;) there maybe a NEW Pentax macro lens in the 90-100mm range. If that pans out in the next couple of months, I'll get that. Else, back to 77 limited & 60-250 for the long stuff.

Item Description
I'm retooling my kit and selling several of dear lenses (they will be replaced by DA15, DA35, FA77, DA60-250). I believe I've priced them well enough for a quick sale. Remember all these lenses are SDM Free :D
I take great care of my gear, and keep them in a special cabinet. They have never been used in rain or any other harsh weather.
  • FA* 80-200mm F/2.8 - SOLD
    In excellent condition with original caps. The only blemish is on the tripod mount (pictured). I will be replacing it with the 60-250. You can view images of the lens, as well as a few taken with it here: Pentax FA* 80-200/2.8 - a set on Flickr

  • FA* 300mm F/4.5 - SOLD
    Again in like new condition and with the box, pouch/case, original caps and thin filter. Again, bothe FA* lenses will be replaced by "one" 60-250. You can view images of the lens, as well as a few taken with it here: Pentax F*/FA* 300/4.5 - a set on Flickr (the first 3 are with an older F*300)

  • DA 70mm F/2.4 - $400
    In like new condition with the box, papers, pouch, original caps. Perfect lens which I hardly ever use. This lens will be replaced with the 77mm limited so I can also use it on my LX. You can view images of the lens, as well as a few taken with it here: Pentax DA 70/2.4 LTD - a set on Flickr

  • FA 20-35mm F/4 - SOLD
    In excellent condition. I believe the 20-35 is the perfect range for a kit lens with the constant F/4 aperture . This lens is much smaller and lighter than the 16-45, almost the same size as the 18-55. This is my most used lens. The DA15 & DA35 will replace this lens. You can view images of the lens, as well as a few taken with it here: Pentax FA 20-35/4 - a set on Flickr

I have most of the LX finders, FE-1 not included. However, I have the FD-1 Magni-Eyepiece. I was tempted, and I should stay away from this forum :ugh:
