The Everyday Sling might just be the perfect pack for not carrying too much gear, combining comfort with Peak Design's signature modern style.
This lens, with its electromagnetic diaphragm control, salvages my aperture block failed K-S2 body, making it useful again, albeit only with this lens. The question is whether this one lens makes it a worthwhile investment. I've decided yes, very much so.
I wasted no time getting it out of the shipping box and onto the street, even in a light rain. I have full confidence in Pentax WR, and had not a second thought about rain.
Not wanting to get too wet myself, however, I only did some quick test shots, at the zoom ends, hand held. At 55mm:
Same topic, at 300mm:
I also did some focus tests, both near and distant:
I also took a couple of pictures using the K-S2 A-HDR setting on the mode dial, which I, for one, am fond of for certain topics that are rather pedestrian unless removed a half step or so from realism. I have a nice collection of K-S2 A-HDR's that I gathered before the aperture block failed, so I am glad to have this capability back again.
The lens is very lightweight, yet it seems built like a tank. No wobble at all in those long extension tubes, no doubt aided by the nice weather seals. The retractable feature in the lens design makes it a short stow when off the camera, fitting in the typical small size lens case:
And, as advertised, the K-3 software update 1.30 enables electromagnetic diaphragm control on that camera also. I checked it out. It works. Thank you, Pentax, for this nice lens.

When the Fujifilm X-T2 arrived, it was more than just a modest upgrade to the already impressive X-T1. While the new X-T3 hasn't changed the overall design of the camera, this model is way more than an upgrade; rather, it's a quantum leap.
The Movie Maker is a compact, motorized slider designed for phones, action cams and small mirrorless cameras. We think it's a fun little kit and a good value proposition for the cost, provided you can work around a few of its weak points.
