im about to have a big pentax sell-off.... keep an eye out....
oh really? are you moving to another brand?
have moved - yeah - to olympus m43.
What are my options for a new tele zoom in the 500-600mm max range?
What gear are you selling, namely lens, namely primes
i have taken a photo... all will be revealed tomorrow evening including primes, zooms, and a flash....
Sigma has a 150-600mm in a Pentax mount.
I don't think that lens ever came to being unfortunately. I think the only thing is pentax 150-450mm
K3 II replacement arrives.. The KP
Somethings new, somethings old, somethings borrowed.
I don't think the KP is replacing the K-3II.
That will be a higher speced camera
Its just all the goodies packed in that give that impression
I hope so... But until we see more evidence and this is a like for like replacement.
Aps-c flagship with fancy high speed buffers and safox12 AF should be coming but k3ii wasn't that either.. It was just the best we had until the k1.
Hopefully a K3 replacement will still have a top LCD and 2 cards.
Not impressed with the shrinking lcd on the K1. Too much real estate taken by bloody great knobs
hmm got a shiny new lens yesterday yay!
pentax 10-17mm fisheye, pretty damn stoked. picked up for $350 on fleabay
now just waiting on a 2nd hand flash to come in the post
Just wondering if anyone knows, I'm going to Japan next month. Is it worth looking for lens there, currently looking at the Sigma Art 35mm Prime. Or just buy it when they have sales here.
I'm not 100% sure, but Sigma is distributed by CR Kennedy (also Pentax distributor) and their eBay store (dcxprt) more often than not sells local stock at grey market prices. Providing the lens is available here, I doubt it would be much cheaper if at all.
Cheers for the reply. I know the second hand market is quite healthy in Japan so I'll just sniff around.
Hunted down the limited edition of the K-1 last night on CR Kennedy's eBay store and grabbed it for $2239.20 delivered with the 20% off voucher.
I think it was a good buy and it'll match my silver 31 and 77 lenses.
So Pentax K1-II. Anybody still shooting Pentax around here?
Yes, a Pentax 645Z. Even today there is no camera who IQ is materially better.
