New Pentax Super Telephoto 04/25/4984
Frank, Tiffany..... you NEED to buy this lens Sorry, I think my Sigma 100-300mm F4 is more than sufficient for our telephoto needs :p At worse, I could just add a Sigma 1.4x TC and make it a 140-420mm F5.6, or a 2x TC to end up with a 200-600mm F8 l...

...and it is an AW lens. Not sure if Can-ikon lenses are weather proof.

It's hard to say but given that this lens is not going to sell a lot of copies let's look at other brand offering. Canon sells a 600mm f4 stabilized lens for $12,000 and an 800mm 5.6 lens for $14,000, and a 400mm f4 lens for $6,500. Nikon sell...

it says on the link that the price is $7,000, isn't that excessive even for a lens like this?

It's all about the length of course...

Yes, quite a lot for Pentax. But it was that lens that caught my eye.

This is part of a 8 new product release today including the new K-5II and K-5IIs, Q10, K to Q mount converter, DFA 645 90mm Macro, DA 18-270, and a new Q mount 15-40 tele. It's a mind boggling release for Pentax.

... Frank, Tiffany..... you NEED to buy this lens! (I'd be happy to borrow it once you do!)
Re: My Limited Collection Is Complete! 04/25/2017
I have the DA*16-50 and DA*50-135. They are wonderful lenses. The DA*16-50 has been repaired once and will be - if necessary - repaired again. I 'almost' bought the DA*300 f4 last year in the shop when it was ONLY $800. :( Now? Yikes. However, t...
Re: My Limited Collection Is Complete! 04/25/2017
Thank you! They are quite nice, aren't they?
Re: My Limited Collection Is Complete! 04/25/2017
tiffpix, congrats on your impressive collection of lenses...oh, and frank are YOU going to be using some of these too? lol!!:p
Re: My Limited Collection Is Complete! 04/25/2017
The 40mm is great because of its miniscule profile. And it takes better than average images. :cool:
Re: My Limited Collection Is Complete! 04/25/2017
Congrats FP! Don't forget to let tiffpix try it out. After all, she is the person ultimately responsible for your recent acquisition. Enjoy your vacation!
Re: My Limited Collection Is Complete! 04/25/2017
Hey wait a minute, what about the DA 35 macro, isn't it a limited lens too? You might just need one more... tempting, but the 31mm already fills that need in a better way. Although the macro-ness of the 35mm Limited is very appealing. I'm workin...
Re: My Limited Collection Is Complete! 04/25/2017
Congratulations on the complete set. While I only have the 21 and 40, the limited lenses are really something special. I've never wanted the complete set but they all are amazing. Hey wait a minute, what about the DA 35 macro, isn't it a limited lens...
