Greetings. Little to mention, long time Pentax user from the film days, Pentax K-3, K-1 and recently picked up a KP and a 16-85mm lens.

Before one inquires yes my name is short for dovahkiin.

JAK. D 150-450mm, 28-200mm (from 35mm film Pentax), 28mm f2.8 prime with 2x teleconverter, 20-40 ltd (aps-c mode), 85mm f1.4, and a few others mostly from 35mm film Pentax cameras Tamron, Vivitar, Formula 5, and Sigma. I do have the 50-500 sigma PK mount but since i purchased the 150-450 i rarely use it.

I was planing on a new Pentax D 24-70 but i do not care for its image quality.

I am curious as to the rumored D 50mm.

Thanks, good selection there! If you're not keen on the 24-70 have you considered the 28-105? If nothing else it's a bit cheaper!

I believe i have a 28-105mm, will have to make an effort to test it out.

Flea markets and garage sales boxes of lenses to rummage through. Why do i do this to myself?

There's several incarnations of that. the latest being the DFA28-105 which came out at about the same time as the 24-70. Others go back to film camera lenses which aren't too bad but the DFA is fine. Another, if you have one or come across one is the FA24-90, the last zoom of the film era before the istD came out. While plastic construction, optically it's pretty good.

I will look into that, thank you.

Indeed. The quest to contribute to the commonwealth of Pentax knowledge and wisdom.

I also use a Pentax K200d. Helps keep the skills honed.
