Hi , I am wondering if the pentax reflex zoom 1.8:12. 400-600 mm will be any good for my pentax Kr ,,and what do you think is a decent price ,I've been offered that lens plus a pentax 1:2.8 24 mm and...


Not sure about the pricing as I am in Canada, but I will comment that the 400 - 600 zoom is ultra powerful, and you won't find that many opportunities to use. Also they suffer with being dim to view and have a very narrow depth of field so focusing can be difficult.

I have done a lot with a 70 - 210mm on an Olympus and found it great for motorcycle and car racing. The 24mm is a wide angle and is useful. The best lens is a 35mm or a zoom that covers 35mm, like 35 - 85 or similar. 35mm gives a view of view of what you see with your eyes. 50mm is the standard lens that comes with most cameras.

$450 AUS is $452 CDN. I would say it is a hell of a deal.

Getting an zoom error on my fuji film finepix z90, what can i do?


Lens errors (zoom errors on Fuji's) are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ... Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to lens error problems can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some last resort troubleshooting steps that you can try that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try.

How to mount Minolta AF 28-80/3.5-5.6 on pentax


Unfortunately, it is not possible to mount Minolta lenses on a Pentax K mount camera and retain either auto-focus, metering, or the ability to focus at infinity.
The reason for the loss of the ability to focus at infinity is because the distance from the mount to where the image forms on a Minolat lens is 43mm, whereas on a Pentax it is 46mm, so the Minolta lens glass would need to be 2mm into the body of the Pentax camera in order for the image to form on the sensor (i.e. have a clear image that is in focus).
The only solution to this is to purchase an adapter with an optical element such as this: http://photo-adapter-llc.amazonwebstore.com/Zykkor-Minolta-MD-Lens-to-Pentax/M/B004PB8142.htm?traffic_src=froogle&utm_medium=CSE&utm_source=froogle This will allow you to focus at infinity, however you will have to use stop down metering and manual focus, as the electrical contacts will not connect. Also, you can expect a slight loss of image quality when using an adapter.
I personally have a few Minolta lenses that I have wanted to use on my Pentax, so I understand your pain. It is a shame they don't work better.
Thank you for using FixYa!

Be warned the likely cost of repair will be nearly as much as simply replacing the camera

Pentax espio 140


subaru662,
can you see the lens in the finder move when you zoom out? if not ,the finder lens is stuck.
if it does move when zooming, see if you have a diopter adjustment wheel or sliding knob near the front lens of the finder. if so adjust the lens to your eye.

Blurry pictures with Pentax K1000


Hello,

It may be the equipment or it may be the way you are holding / taking the picture.

Here are suggestions on how to take better zoom lens pictures (this also applies to any camera) before you start diving into the equipment.

1) Use the fastest shutter speed possible. This reduces the amount of time of exposure, this limiting the amount of motion blur that can happen.
2) Don't hold the camera by hand. Either use a tri-pod or rest the camera on something stable, like a wall, rock, bench, etc. This makes it less likely that the camera will move when you are taking the picture, thus reducing motion blurr in the image.
3) If you have to hold the camera by hand, hold the zoom lens with your left hand (because it is more towards the center of gravity than the camera is) & try to slow your breathing & take the picture between heart beats.
4) Also, another thing that helps is to use a remote shutter release (such as that rubber bulb or plunger attached to the shutter release). I would also say using the self-timer would help, but the K1000 doesn't have that. This is so the camera doesn't shake from you pushing the shutter release button.
5) Make sure the lens is clean! Even get one of those lens pens from your local camera shop.

If you have tried all (or most of these) then its time to start looking at your equipment, such as . . . is your shutter getting stuck when exposing, thus lengthening the exposure and making for a blurring shot or do you need glasses? <grin -- which is why I find it really difficult to use manual focus equipement now, because my eye sight is really bad!>

Take care & Happy Imaging!
Glen
