EDIT 2: it's also a perfect lens for portrait photography! Probably true if you're related to the Moomins. Or really want to be.

And I know that I want one.... US 160, shipping included.

It's a fun lens!

Also kind-of amusing that the ad features it mounted on the Lumix camera and i'm pretty sure that grip is going to show up in the shot. It's _that_ wide.

"100% Manual Focus Lens brings you great joy of perfect experience in manual focusing" :rofl::laugh1:

Yup. Feet, fingers, plastic bags on the ground...
And this "perfect experience" must be that you don't need to focus at all... I also like that they spelled MEIEK wrong.

I bought some CF cards from the Chinese. In the ad they were labeled "Rerory Card". But the ones I got was "Memory Card"... And, when tested, actually worked flawlessly.

I don't understand why at all there is a focus ring on this... Could easily be a fixed focus lens - and this would have reduced the cost even more.

Order one immediately Erik.
Then when you've tired of it, I'll happily take it off your hands (and feet). :biggrin:
Just did! Yesterday, in fact.

Black Friday deal: US139:- w/free shipping!
Hopefully the Chinese write $20 as Customs value as asked. Then I'll have made an interesting deal, at least...

And I appreciate your offer! Really.

Problem is that I'm probably not able to find it if/when I don't want it. Spent some time the other day looking for my f:2/6.5 mm Meike.
No joy. But I found other interesting stuff that I wasn't looking for, though!

Bought a stack of big ass IKEA boxes w/lids. Lids cost extra. Next week I'm promised my kitchen will be finished. Then maybe I will get everything out on the floor and back, roughly sorted into the boxes. We're talking about most lenses and me Pentax gear here.

Then I'll have to get more boxes... And then the labelling and stacking phase will commence.

At least I'll have something to dance merrily around at X-mas time, worst case.

Just had a moment of katharsis.

I'm really built to be an executive. I'm much better at visualization and planning, than actually doing the work. I really must get myself a horde of mindless labourers, so I can dedicate myself to overseeing, criticising, and inspection!
