The 10-20mm has now sold.

I'm amazed the Sigma 70-200mm hasn't been snatched up yet. I'm selling it cheaper than what i paid for it last year.

I'll seriously consider any offers.

Looks like I need to list on eBay.

Just did a quick search of my flickr account and it dragged up these ones.

I'm sure there is more there especially portraits but the search is not too good.

Excellent condition all over with no markings anywhere on body or elements.

My FA-50mm f/1.4 just fell apart in my hands

Yes... mine did *exactly* the same.

No warning and it was never badly treated by me. I ended up throwing it in the bin as the Pentax support here in Australia did not want to know about it since it had fallen apart (WTF!!!)

oh mine had *exact* the same symptoms as yours. wouldn't focus to infinity out of the blue one day. nothing had changed with the lens. not dropped or anything. just focus stuffed up and I switched to manual focus and rotated and out she popped. *exactly* the same.

of course here in australia the one Pentax repair centre in Melbourne did not want to know about it and getting rough pricings from third party repair places made it totally pointless trying to repair ($200+ for a $500 lens)

Thanks for the extra notes Peter. I'm definitely swaying towards grabbing it and have sent TC a PM.

Our Aussie peso has seemed to gather a bit of momentum again lately and this lens was what I was planning on buying next.

Oooh so tempted. this is the exact lens I want to buy but I really want HSM.
I'm tired of screw drive lenses on my K20 body and their slow focus :-(

edit: hmmm just doing some conversions to Australian dollar and with the TC this is very attractive. Man I'm quite close to grabbing this. Is the sharpness really enough to offset the lack of HSM?

I've sent you a PM

You can shoot with the existing 10-20 variable apeture one easily enough hand held at night as it is.

When I first looked at getting the 10-20 I was concerned about the variable aperture but once you use it you find that it doesn't matter.

Hand holding a lens at 10mm at 1/20 or even 1/10 is not out of the question with in body SR.

My 50mm f/1.4 Super Tak is superior to my SMC-FA 50mm f/1.4 without a doubt.
The Super Tak is astounding. The colours. The creamy bokeh. Wonderful.

I'll drag up some sample images from both when I am home later on (work ban on flickr grrrr)

Absolute and utter crap.

I've stood beside both cameras during group shooting sessions and heard *both* models you quote hunt around like psychos for focus as much as mine did.

My only annoyance with the camera is that I use Live View, but I also like using Depth of Field preview and they are both linked to the same button.

Other than that. Nothing.

I bought my Sigma 10-20 in Hong Kong. Can't remember the store name (in Mong Kok) but boy was it exciting walking into a store and seeing cabinet after cabinet dedicated to Pentax gear WOW!! (especially coming from Australia where it is hard to find even entry level Pentax bodies in shops).

I'll edit this post when I find the details. The store was really good. Very helpful. Let you try the lenses before purchase, etc.

I can get a 2Gb flash drive for $15 australian pesos from an overpriced shopping mall.
Say no more :-)

My flash drive is chocked up with Portable Apps like Firefox and other utilities (Keepass, Truecrypt, etc).

I suppose I could use a card and reader but in my head that would be a waste of an SD card.

have you seen these ones on Adorama?

POAETPXK Pro Optic Auto Extension Tube Set for Pentax-KPR Mount, 3 Tubes.

I can't recommend that actual product but I can highly recommend Adorama. An excellent place for Australians to buy from. Extremely quick postage!

edit: hmmm looking at the closeup picture on that site though.... I can't see any contacts so I wonder if they really are "auto" or if the picture is wrong for the product.

Hey mate, any initial feelings or comments on the lens?
I'll be basing my own decision on this lens partly on what you think of it ;)

I'll also be hassling them for the price you got as well ;-)
