  • Replied in Dan...
    Hi Dan, Yes, I have an NEX-7 with a Lens Turbo II adapter. I'll check it out. Thanks for the reminder. Ron

    Hi awaldram, My brother and I sure got a lot of fun use out of this Pentax-A*300mm f/4 lens from the time that I bought it thru 2009. After my brother died in 2009 I used it a few more times then ...
  • Replied in Spyros...
    Spyros, I took a stab in the dark and set the FA at minus 9. The lens sharpened up at f/2.8 at all focal lengths. Still I was shooting under Tungsten light, so I now will do a proper FA adjustment ...

    There is only a 6 year Canadian Tamron Warranty for this lens. I'll check that out. Thanks Spyros. Ron
  • Replied in Spyros...
    Hi Spyros, The only problem with buying from Canada is that Tamron won't honor the warranty in the USA. Perhaps I will send it to Tamron someday. However, I will be using it mostly at f/8 and if I ...
  • Here are the various versions of the Pentax 18-55mm lens (non WR). (1) - SMC PENTAX-DA 1:3.5-5.6 18-55mm AL - This was the original and is not worth a damn. (2) - SMC PENTAX-DA 1:3.5-5.6 18-55mm AL II
  • Now there are four (4) available. I received the one I ordered and did a quick check. Fast focusing. Not as sharp wide open as I thought it would be. Not a bad lens for US $285 but I would not buy ...
  • Hi folks, The last time I shot this combo was on the K-5 a few years ago. I wanted to see how it does on the K-3. Pentax K-3 + Pentax-A*300mm f/4 + Pentax-F 1.7X AF Adapter. Works OK but not great IMO.
  • Wow! Death Ray is right Mike. That thing looks scary to me. Ron
  • Hi folks, I went to Adorama.com and did a search for Pentax K-5 IIs. The K-5 IIs is no longer listed. Instead what came up was a listing of the Pentax DSLR's shown from low price to high price. Wha ...
  • Thanks Mike. Ron
  • I assume you have the K-30 or the K-50. Is that correct? I just checked my K-50 and it works just fine with it set-up as I told you. CIF does not work in Live View. Ron
  • Some Sigma lenses will not do CIF. The one I have that does do CIF is Sigma 18-250mm F3.5-6.3 DC Macro HSM Note that this is the non-OS version. I don't know if the previous OS version will do CIF ...
  • Hi Jack, I think you need to go into the Custom Menu, probably the last page, and turn on the CIF. Ron
  • Replied in mrp...
    Thanks mrp. If the weather is good tomorrow I think I am going to test my Pentax A*300mm f/4 + Pentax-F 1.7X AF Adapter on the K-3. I did some preliminary tests in the house tonight and it looks ...
  • Jim, I did a quick (outside) handheld test of the K-3 + Sigma 400/5.6 APO Tele-macro + the Sigma 1.4X APO EX or the Pentax 1.4X HD AW. I am unable to conclude which of the 1.4x teleconverters ...
  • Replied in Nhelnhel...
    I think so too. Thanks Nhelnhel. You can see how I did it in the link below. http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/55149291 Cheers. Ron
  • This is how I got the Image that I posted in the OP. I took the original images #1 and #2. Then I cropped Image #2 to produce Image #3. Then I used Photoshop Elements 6.0 (PSE6) to stitch together ...
  • #3 for me Ben. Your magpies look a lot different than my magpies. :-) Ron
  • Replied in Ben...
    Thank you Ben. Thanks. I had to crop the top off from one of the photos because the ears was in a different position but the rest of the deer was fairly stationary. BTW: I used Photoshop Elements ...
