    Thanks for the advice. Having only used PP a few times in my working career, I have been retired for 6 yrs, I did not have too much of an idea what to do, but took the plunge this morning. Our ...

    Thanks. Not so good with powerpoint, but will give it a go. Ronnie.
  • Replied in Photo ebooks
    I did. But somehow not getting what suits me or my pocket. I'm not looking for expensive software, as I won't be using it often. Ronnie.
  • Created question thread Photo ebooks
    I hope I can ask this here. I have done some research, but not getting anywhere. I'm looking for software that allows you to create a photo ebook, to store on a pc. Also with the idea to share with ...
  • I have since done the obvious thing, and looked at photos of the mounts. They are identical.
  • It does thanks.
  • Sorry this is probably a silly question.. Hopefully the last. I would love to get one of the 55 f1.2 lenses, but price is an issue. So because of limited availability where I live I will most ...

    Thanks very much Franco. This is great. So at $399 I would be at the top end, but still sounds worth the price. Ronnie.
  • Thanks for this. A lenses are not as abundant as the M lenses, and generally a bit more expensive. What is the difference between a K lens and P/K lens. Would the P/K also work. I'm just wondering ...
  • Thanks for that.
  • Thanks Doug. That is all I need to know. I don't have too much problem with the weight of the 1.4. I carried a 150-600 Tamron around quite a lot :) Ronnie.
  • Thanks for the info. Is the main difference between the 1.4 and 1.7 wide open? I don't use wide open often, so could get by with using the lens from f2/2.8 The only reason for looking at the 1.4 is ...
  • Thanks Doug. I will look out for the 1.7, but the older Pentax lenses are not freely available here. I can get from the USA, but shipping is about as much as the lens. But if the lens is about ...
  • Thanks Joe. According to a report I read by someone who owns one, it is Pentax K -mount. Yes it is manual focus.  The following lens is being sold as a vintage lens, so I take it that it is MF. Of ...
  • Created discussion thread Pentax 50mm lens
    I was recently given a Chinon CG-5 film camera in great condition. I think the 50mm f1.9 lens is probably a weak link. The body feels very solid. It uses K mount lenses. I'm thinking of getting a ...
  • Replied in Chinon CG-5
    Thanks Dave. I dry fired quite a few times, but without opening the back. It just sounded good. Shutter speeds changed quite nicely. Maybe I did not do any real checks, as the camera is in such ...

    Thanks Franco. This lens is for sale at $399. Is that a good price? Thanks.
  • Replied in Chinon CG-5
    I came across a Revuenon 55mm f1.2 lens with Pentax K mount. The seller says the lens was made by Tomioka. I gets very good user reviews on a website called "Pentax Forums" It seems to have the ...

    Thanks for sharing Franco. Looks great Doing some searches I see there is a Revuenon 55 f1.2 with K-mount made by Cosina Tomioka. Also doesn't come cheap. Gets great reviews.
