Still not managed to sell that thing yet Simon? 😉😉;-)
It isn't mine and it is a camera shop on Ebay where all their items are excessively priced. I'm too savy with camera...
Wow, quite a telescope, 125 mm diameter. I think the K-5 image stabilisation only works up to 800 mm and so does the O-GPS1. I think the K100D went to 1000 mm. Looks not really...
Look at the size of the front lens...
This is a beautiful photograph!
Worthy of fine printing and selling as a limited edition.
Beautiful bokeh and compositions!
Beautiful place and photos!
I would use some fast primes to enhance these even further!
The Samyang 14mm f2.8 is great if you want wide and ultra sharp wide open.
I also found the manual legacy...
There is always the excellent legacy glass unless you really need autofocus.
I never understood the idea that Pentax does not have a good range of lenses. I'll put that down to Canikon ignorance and supposed fanboy supremacy.
The K-mount and backwards compatibility with...
Sunlight does not get rid of fungus, and even if it did the coatings are damaged. If I showed you a photo you would know that no special god rays would cure this. It would have to be physically...
Now thats what I call a lens!
The 4th one is quite Ansel Adams-esque with the sunset lighting the houses (you know the famous photo). Try it in B&W.
Another brilliant use for this lens is...
I just had to test it and well the moon is always a good test subject for long telephoto lenses.
The 75-150 is going back to the seller. Stevie Wonder could have seen the mushrooms...
I also own a M 4/200. It was a wonderful lens on my ME super, but it is very disappointing on my K-5. So if you are not just collecting, try to get a 2.5/200.
I won't sell...
I bought both for my ME Super, mainly for distant landscapes. I'll give it a twirl on the K30 to see what I think.
Nice to hear you still have the picture on the wall and what you used to take...
Well said KL Matt.
I've often said that the best review is your own.
This review is akin to asking Hindus about the quality of beef!
It's like Which magazine or Amazon reviews which I simply ignore.
All the above relating to what I would buy it for...
A hiking lens, small, weather-proof and as I am a wannabe Ansel Adams quality is paramount (lowest ISO)

agree with you, anyway even if they call it a little soft WO at 20mm i don't care since i will not use it often at that setting and even then the important...
I got these today and the Pentax-M 75-150mm f4 is badly fungus infected, what a shame as the body is immaculate.
The Pentax-M f4 200mm was OK after a lens clean.
I can't believe the seller...
When it comes to bokeh, it seems like nothing modern manages to get what those creaky classics had.
The Germans were brilliant engineers and hence why the Americans 'stole'...
LOL I prefer the Helios. It is very punchy. I have one myself and I need to properly clean it inside after taking it apart and leaving a greasy finger mark.
Do you find it is very flary/blary...
Which is which?
Some are ISO 100 and others ISO 1250?
