The K-3 really is a beast of a camera. Very impressive and feels very solid and well constructed. I haven't had any lock ups or that mirror flapping that was reported early on. I too am waiting for a K-3iii type camera, as whilst the KP was a good camera too, it wasn't a suitable K-3 replacement for me.

I picked up a Sigma 400mm/5.6 yesterday It's the AF variant listed here
Seems to be in good condition so a real bargain at £15

It's considerably lighter than my other AF options in the same focal range, so it might get to come out with me more often.

£250.00 repair job for a dropped lens... not really an acquisition, but it came back like new so feels like it!

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

It'll have to wait until the replacement bellows arrive. You could sieve soup with them at the moment!

My father gave me a rather similar Ensign folding bellows camera in the late 1940s after he took up 35mm photograpy. It too used 120 roll film (rather hard to get in those post-war days of real austerity). I used it take a lot of photos of my National Service posting to a Fleet Air Arm station at Lossiemouth, which I have put up on Flickr . That ancient camera was later scrapped, but I still have the Ensign lens-shutter-diaphragm assembly:

Mine's a Lumix G6.

There is no truth in the rumour that I got it because from a distance, on a misty day, it looks a bit like a Leica R8!

Pentax A50mm2.8 macro....According to the vendor, this item belonged to her late father and the box was unopened....I have just received it ,untested, and it does look new or unused , came with its case and strap is still in its packaging.

Also from the same vendor a A28MM2.8.....this must have had some use , came with a Hoya filter attached in an OSAWA lens case.

For a small donation to camera club fund I acquired this little set. Originally because I had a use in mind for the Helios 135mm with it's m42 mount. But now it's the Industar 50-2 that intrigues me, it's so small compared to 50mm Pentax varieties. Is it a fore runner of a pancake lens?

I too got both of these lenses from the same vendor in a purchase a few years ago. The 50mm is great and the 28mm is very good from f/4 (though has horrible bokeh).

Looks like an SMC-A 50mm f/2.8 Macro is on its way to me. Had my eye on another on a popular auction site but this one looks cleaner and is approximately 2/3 the price of the other. Fingers crossed it's as good as it looks!

I have the K50 macro on the way. You know I find it hard to resist K series lenses...

Just as well the 2000mm mirror lens rarely comes up for sale.
