Sold 9 Pentax lenses on Ebay last week (most of my APS-C glass and a few older ones) ... still got a few to go although I am keeping the high end full frame stuff for the K-1.

I have said that I won't buy anymore Pentax glass as they aren't bringing out any bodies that interest me but I see Laowa have just announced their 100mm f/2.8 x2 macro in Pentax mount which has got me reaching for my Paypal pot of money.

Not me Garerth, I don't give my lenses away for nothing. It's people like that who devalue Pentax equipment so much that others have sell it for a lot less than it's real worth.

They had to make enough to cover the free postage...

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

Everything that seller has listed seem to be at highly overinflated prices. Makes no sense at all.

What, like this one also!



If the seller sells these, I'm selling up

Perhaps on the basis that if he posts enough there will be some idiot who bites. In the same way that many online scams work: they may be obvious to many but some people will bite.

Agree about SRS service - and you're in for a treat with that lens. I've owned both the A and FA versions and the results on a 645N were top notch - looking forward to seeing some Digital offerings

My Kershaw Raven (see a couple of pages back) has just come back from having new bellows fitted, the lenses cleaned and the shutter serviced. I loaded a roll of Ilford Delta 400 and will use the roll up tomorrow so I can send it off to be developed on Monday. At only eight frames per roll, it shouldn't be too difficult!

Can’t wait to see the results!

I’ve just received a quote for two MX’s to have full services. They’ve apparently been neglected, service-wise, so will be as full a service as they come but they’re internally great and aesthetically great, not been meddled with and will be great cameras when they return. The quote reads a little high but will definitely be worthwhile.
Work being carried out by Asahi Photo and should be returned shortly after 7-10 working days.
I’ll be keeping them both as infinitum, one for Colour rolls and one for B&W.
If the quote was a little cheaper I’d probably have gone for a film scanner or developing hardware alongside them but that can wait.
