I've seen some unusual pricing from Park over the last year or so - I did phone them about one lens (that seemed oddly low) and they confirmed the price was correct. They are an established bricks'n'mortar shop with a good track record - so it's probably worth taking a punt if you're in the market. I'm half tempted, but do I "need" another FF body

I'm tempted too, but too heavily invested in DA glass, so will just carry on with my K3 III.

I'm highly tempted but can I get it past SWMBO ?
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

My K-1 is about 6 years old and perhaps it might be a good time to 'upgrade' but having just sold a macro lens through lack of use I'd have to sell that and would imagine a wave of macro lenses appearing in the classifieds over the next few months....

But in those last 6 years I've barely scraped over the 10k shots on the camera so I think I'll keep with my own camera for now.

Metz 45 CL-4, AF500FTZ. AF540FGZ.

You do make sense, but it is tempting isn't it?
Be well, stay safe.

There are always a number of those macro lenses on E Bay, usually going for a lot of money. Stupid when you can get an F series 100mm for about 150 !

I feel a bit guilty now if it was a pricing error on their part.

ps. I just phoned them to check it was not a pricing error on their part and they confirmed it was not. I have dealt with them on and off for many years and would not have been comfortable if it had been a mistake on their part and would have been happy to cancel the order.

So all good and I got in just in time....lucky me.
