Pentax DA* 55mm f1.4 SDM auto focus issue

My DA* 55 does the same thing. I have to wake it up. It seems to take longer and longer. The last time I used it, it was indoors in a controlled situation and just used it in manual mode. Unfortunately it is not a lens that gets frequent use. I have considered selling it but once in awhile it’s exactly what I think I need.

Item for Sale
Pentax DA 18-135mm

Asking Price
175.00 USD

Item Location
Kentucky (United States)

Item Description
Pentax 18-135 zoom purchased new with Pentax K70 body. Part of my original zoom trio of 18-135, HD 55-300 and Sigma 10-20mm f3.5. Voices in my head told me to upgrade to the 16mm-85mm zoom a year ago or so. For my purposes the 18-135 is perfectly fine but the 16-85 is subjectively slightly better. Donít need both.

It is lightly used and always had a UV filter protecting the front element. (A throwback habit from film days.)


No box or paperwork but includes OEM end caps.

New Year’s Day: Bandit patiently waiting for me to launch his ball. I took one of my Q7s with the telephoto zoom on this outing just because I hadn’t had the Q7 out in a awhile.

At our company Christmas party at Diamonds Pub. The tilt is intentional and meant to imitate a famous photograph I only vaguely recall by a photographer whose name Iíve totally forgotten.

I agree with you on the cropping issues. The first one bothers me more than the half duck. Not that I haven’t made composition errors myself but I don’t bill myself as a professional and get paid.

Would I make a fuss about it? Probably not.

I got my GR III roughly the same time I adopted my dog Bandit from the Shamrock Foundation 4 months ago. I bring Bandit and my GRIII nearly everywhere. Thus I have probably 1500 shutter activations and 2/3rds of them are pictures of Bandit like this one.

I was photographing my K-01 with the intent of possibly posting it for sale and noticed the flash wouldn’t up. I set it aside with the intent of looking into in the future. Then I saw this post. Ta DA! Issue resolved. I think I have the correct flash cover somewhere in my gear cabinet.

Street light shadows of me and Bandit on his ďlast callĒ potty walk. Hard BW and Hight light weighted and most of all the last post I need for a raffle ticket.

The GR III is changing my vision. Iíll probably wind up selling my K-01 because of this purchase.

Peak Design Capture Clip

I’m happy and confident using one within some of the caveats others had listed. I’ve used one attached to my belt with a K70 and a 55-300 PLM. Note: I always wear a gun leather grade Galco belt. I have a battery grip on my K3II so that doesn’t ride well, I have another one on my Peak Design 10L sling or for my back pack but I don’t use it much because I’ve never worn my back pack since I bought it.

Like blackbrewcloud the K3II with grip is on a shoulder strap usually with the 16-85 or the DA*300

What music are you currently listening to?

I donít know how to post YouTube links but the Disturbed cover of Sounds of Silence is awesome. I listen to music in the car occasionally but usually NPR news shows. At home Iím more likely to playing along to a jam track or using my Trio+ band creator if not playing Borderlands 3.

I might like music at work if it the classic radio station had a more expansive play list. I could dig some Sixties hippie rock, Cream, Hendrix, The Doors, etc which is now called oldies rock, I think. But Aerosmith, Journey, AC/DC are repeatedly on an endless loop.

But itís actually gotten worse. Handsome Doug has found a soft rock / pop classic radio station. He likes to sing along to Karen Carpenter, ABBA, Olivia Elton John, Linda Ronstadt and the Captain and Tenille.

I might dig an all Blue Oyster Cult station, though if it excluded Godzilla, Donít Fear the Reaper and Burning For You. You know, their most successful hits,

Iím listening to NOTHING! And I LIKE IT!

I like to work in near silence these days. My least favorite coworker is on vacation and it is peaceful in the office for a change. His desk is right outside my office. When here he listens to Classic Rock Radio and gradually increases the volume until itís distracting. If he doesnít reach that threshold soon enough, he starts singing along out of tune and out of time until I ask him to please stop it!!!

I used to like classic rock. I play guitar. Iím almost 70 years old. I used to play most of those songs before they became ďclassic.Ē But now I literally prefer the sounds of silence.
