Bargain?

Posted 19/04/2024 - 17:26 Link
So, in my introductory post i know i said i had what i could afford, but.........
I decided i needed (?) something better than the 18-55mm kit lens so went looking on the French second-hand websites for a Sigma 17-70mm as i had heard good things about it.
Found an advert for:
"Pentax isthme with18-55mmF3.5-5.6AL lens and 17-70mm F2.8-4.5 DC Macro"
After a good look at the photos it sppeared that the 17-70mm was the lens i was after so decided to buy the lot.
It appears that some sellers have no idea what they are selling
and that my 50 euros plus postage gets me a whole lot of gear (in my opinion).
The stuff arrived yesterday.
The lens is a F2.8-4 OS HSM
The isthme is an *ist DL
Everything is almost mint with boxes lens covers, hoods etc.r

Now i need to start taking some actusl photos!

It pays to look because you can still drop onto a real bargain.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass
