This arrived the other day, will be for use on the K-1ii:




I think you'll enjoy it - it's superb quality and not too bulky or heavy to carry around on lengthy walks, look forward to seeing some results maybe

Although it is currently residing with a friend until we can meet-up again, I have finally managed to find the elusive lens hood for my SMC Pentax-AF zoom 1:2.8 35-70mm.

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

What you need are lenses, more lenses, bigger lenses, better lenses, faster lenses, and when you have these, your pictures will be perfect!

Couldn't resist, got this in mint condition, as near as good as my k1000. Becoming a collector
Oh, found my receipt for the k1000, half price closing down sale at Comet in 24/09/87 body only at £45.


Just need to film test now, everything appears to work.
Btw, as a quick check I tried 2 digital and 3 film slr cameras metering at same subject and all gave same f stop reading with 200 ISO and 1/4 shutter. I know this is not scientific but is it a check worth any merit?

That looks a peach of a KX! Very nicely done.
Yup, it's got merit. It's how I've roughly checked mine in the past. What it won't do is give you an idea of whether your shutter speeds are calibrated, but it's a nice check for the metering.

A Panasonic LX100, which I've just boxed up to return 'cause it's got a mark on the sensor.

Grrr...

I had a K-series 20mm lens in my sights but despite advertising it as "worldwide shipping" the seller declined to send it out of the US. By the time I had spoken to my sister-in-law in MA, it had sold. Grrrrrr. I do have a K500 winging its way to a friend in Ohio, but who knows when I'll get there to collect it...

It will be an interesting challenge getting that onboard in carry-on luggage

I’m struggling to find a bag sufficiently large to accommodate my copy of the lens with body attached.

That thought had crossed my mind. Hoping it'll fit without the body... I have to buy a new bag soon anyway as my old cheapie** one which has lasted almost 12 years is starting to show its age.

**I think I got my £43.70s worth given I ordered in in January 2009.
