This lens arrived yesterday and looks mint, so I put it on the MX and took a few shots of it.

Looks very classy. I aquired one last year for my collection, mus give it a proper outing on digital at some point.

As I mentioned over the on the US fora, I use this lens a great deal. One can even hand hold it in live view using the levels on screen to get the uprights upright (although, obviously, much better on a tripod!). It is also really good for stitching photos when everything won't fit. It is more useful on my film cameras (as it was designed for 35mm), so I guess K-1 users would like it even more...

This one is in nicer condition than mine.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

I've got one too, as does JAK. Between us, we've probably got the greatest concentration of these lenses in any group in the world!

Quite possibly!
Just wish to point out again that on Pentax digital cameras, the sensor can be shifted when live view is turned on which amounts doing to the same thing with a normal lens, but it's nice to have the real thing.

How far does the sensor shift compared to using the lens? I've never tried the sensor shift. K.

Is that the composition adjustment setting John ? I can't say I have tried it out.

It is. I've never tried it out seriously either. I really should have done a comparison with the K28S when I had it out on a shoot a few weeks ago.

Yes! For other readers who don't understand, when you turn on Live View you can use the cursor keys to adjust the view before pressing OK, so by holding the camera vertical, the top of tall buildings can be brought into frame without them appearing to lean backwards.
