    Thank you so much for the interest and all the ideas. I came back to the forum now to write my update on my issue and I found your very helpful post. The camera I used the lens was a brand new mark ...
  • Replied in Am I wrong?
    It s ok Mr Dean. I have no idea. It looks that something is not right after the repair.
  • Replied in Yes, and no
    Thanks David. Well yesterday I made some tests outside. The results were really bad on the road right side of the photo. Almost all details were missing and those artifacts that are visible here ...
  • Replied in Am I wrong?
    Hi Mr Dean It has nothing to do with pixel shift. Or the tripod. I am using the exact system since 2018 and I never had any problems. I used astrotracer a thousand times and I guess I know the ...
  • Created question thread Am I wrong?
    As I wrote before(sorry if I became boring) 😁. I received recently my 15-30 which they repaired it in Pentax service center. I paid a lot for the repair but I couldn't afford to buy a new lens. Ma ...
  • Good morning Bob. Thank you for the advices. Unfortunately the donuts were not there before at least since 2018 when I bought the lens. And for sure is not astrotracer artifacts apart from trails ...
  • Unfortunately I didn't communicate with them as the company that sold the lens to me communicates with Pentax eu
  • My question is? With 900 euros they didn't replace the optics? I don't even know what parts they replaced😱

  • This is an update of my situation. I got the mark ii in a good lower price and i bought it. I prefer not to talk about the mark ii which i had to buy it to cover a client's needs. (for me its not ...
  • The lens hood is always attachéd on 15-30. The lens cover broke and also the metal ring that is around the glass got a hit.
  • Thanx. I will keep that in mind.
  • Yes......this is my update.....and I manage to make things more complicate for me. Well after the service team informed that I had to spend 1500 plus vat euros I believed that 15-30 should have ...
  • My dear friend. Thank you for the kind words. After checking my lens the focusing motor sounded ok and focus normally. Turning the zoom ring it was stacked in certain mm and it was moving hard ...
  • That will cost me more as here in Cyprus there is no used Pentax market. Also the prices in Europe sky rocketed.
  • The 1500+ vat was with the amount needed for the lens also. I checked it on my k5 and the motor was focusing. The glass was not broken but there was a dent on the metal ring around the glass. If I ...
  • I don't want to get back to apsc John. I thought about this as it's a great camera. But there are some things I don't like about k3. The rear screen is one of those.
  • Created discussion thread Now what I shall do......
    Hello my fellow Pentaxians. I would like to hear your opinion about a very serious situation I got into. First of all I am the kind of person who consider my equipment as part of my family. I ...
