My long time friend from High School asks for the 85mm and I have to withdraw my MINT copy of SuperTak 85mm f/1.9 for my good friend in Hong Kong.

The Super Tak 135mm f/2.5 is still available, I am motivated to sell, please PM if you have interest. I have not used the 135 but it sure look very close to mint in condition. When time allows, I will shoot test shots likely in the weekend.

The site don't offer insurance rate, so I can only find

Postage Price Calculator Mail Services

1. USPS international with partial tracking and likely $100 default insurance: $46 with 6-10 delivery

2. Regular US regular post office air package: $23.50 , and time can vary between 12 to 20 days -- based on my past experience, sometime it can be long over 25 days subject to location in Europe.

I have shipped both options successfully. Most people go for the #1 without insurance as the fee may add another $15 but I can't tell until I buy the label.

P.S. I look around tonight, I can't find the original box. I though I have it but I am still looking, a 65% to find it tomorrow, I will update you

Tamron 17-35mm f/2.8-4.0 was sold and shipped to France. The other gear are available. The Tamon 28-75mm f/2.8 is a classic lens for the FF. I have used it with great satisfaction on K20D/K5 and now K/3. I sold as I have DA* 16-50 for aps-c usage. If I go for K-1, I will keep both of my inexpensive Tamron zooms.

Thanks,

I have way too many great looking and interesting gear to list. The red camera can be purchased and I will throw in adapter to M42 mount. I have a Tamron 28mm f2.5 in C/Y mount and the Sigma 24mm super-wide f/2.8 in c/y mount as well. Please PM for detail as I am motivated to sell these Takumars and have other gear to list.

I have 177 positive ratings and many sale go without rating as buyers forget or don't have the habit rating. I don't blame them. I have been able to sell with positive rating as I ship quickly and have a good track record on accuracy in the description. I don't sell to make money as I sell to trade up or cut down on LBA leftover.

Both the Tokina and Minolta will require LA-EA4 adapter. The adapter is $300 new and I can offer the adapter for $230 + shipping (Price firm). And the Tokina is a good zoom, I sell as I like to move up to FE lenses or Leica M with Voiglander primes.

The flower shot came from my Pentax gear. I actually like this zoom lens a lot and I use it with LA-EA3 adapter and I get all the support of all PDAF focal points and Face recognition is working. Eye-AF is not supported. I can sum up the lens as
  • AF is great with LA-EA3 on mirror-less bodies

  • Sharpness and color are decent, SAM is quiet compared to Tamron 28-75m f/2.8

  • Build not top notch, similar to Tamron and is very dependable and solid performance

  • Reason that I sell is upgrade to new Tamron 28-75 in FE mount

Hin

Autofocus any (incl. manual) PK lens with Sony A7II

I have not been visiting often and hence the very late reply. The adapter works well on A7r2. The newer version of bodies such as Sony A7r3, A73, A6300, A6500 will work even better because of improved AF speed and more advancement in PDAF.

On my Sony A7r2, the adapted Pentax lenses won't AF as fast as the native lenses but I will say comparable to AF in average lighting of my Pentax K-5. In the very dark indoor and when contrast is low, the AF has some hunting. The TechArtPro adapter has many kirks but most can be worked out with frequent usage, patience and understanding of its short-comings. The beauty of this adapter is that it turn all of my Pentax FA, M42, Pentax K-mount manual focus lenses into AF. It is like the Pentax AFA 1.7x TC adapter but it works way faster and more dependable than the AF in AFA adapter.

I now have this adapter and all of my FA limited are going well with AF in Sony A7RMII. I am surprised that this adapter actually strong enough to AF my Tamron 17-35mm f/2.8-4.0 and Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 that are in Pentax K-mount. Will show more and update as I go through the paces with my new adapter and newly arrived camera.

I finished a spring break vacation in Las Vegas traveling with my family with 2 crutches. I don't need to use crutch now but I take it with me on the hiking where i have difficulty in going downhill as I can't bend my knee easily after ACL reconstruction surgery.

I brought three lenses to the spring break vation
  • Zonlai 25mm f/1.8 (used most frequently #1)

  • Sony E 35mm f/1.8 (#3)

  • Sony E 50mm f/1.8 (#4 I only use it for few pictures at night)

  • + Sony AS100V on a selfie stick for wide angle shots (#2 I use it for wide angle and small video)

I thought I would use the E 35mm f/1.8 most and as it turns out, 70% of my images were shot with Zonlai while I use the E 35mm f/1.8 for some as in 15% and 13% on the Sony Action Cam and a few night shots were made the E 50mm f/1.8

That Zonlai MF lens that I call Leica/Voiglander knock off make me really proud. Yes, it has its fair share of issues but boy, the center sharpness along with its bokeh make it a great favorite of mine in traveling light.

Question for those using Sony A7II with LA-EA3 adapter
Posted By hinman
Replies: 4
Views: 1,162
I suggest to check on the guide from Brian Smith such as confirming the setting on selecting PDAF over CDAF

Guide to Using Sony A-Mount Lenses on Sony a7RII


from Brian's Smith guide



I don't have the newer A7II but I have A7 and LA-EA4. From what I have learned in reading other comment, the LA-EA3 is supposed to work closer to native lens using PDAF in the newer camera and firmware in A7II, A7rII, A6300 and after. I will suggest to keep looking and try AF-C and Wide mode where you can bring up the small squares AF points in PDAF.

Recommendation: The genuine adapter has the least issues, long lasting, and work without the need of a key. But this one needs some time to get used to its operation.
