Konica Auto S2 was sharp as all hell. Loved mine. Didn't have a strap on it, fell from my hands. Miss it thusly. Made some nice images on her. Konica glass was superb. Their film was good and cheap too.

Wow - I have a collection of lenses from my old ME-Super -
even a couple of long telephotos ...
... so this is a good digital camera to get to put them back in use?

I bought the body at Cameta. Will check with them as the price you quoted seems reasonable. Nothing against refurbs!!

Got the camera via Fedex today. A fellow AKer is sending me his old lens which has been out of service for awhile. Looking forward to the mating-up!

Rick,
What kind of brand/lens are you getting and will it need an adaptor? Look forward to your impressions and photos!

Well, I changed my mind about the lens. Ordered a 45-200mm Panasonic instead of a prime. I think it'll be a bit more flexible while learning the camera.

Now I want to sell my FZ-20 and Lumix LX3. They will be missed.

I have the FZ-20 and would never sell it. Not too many digital cameras have a constant F2.8 throughout the whole zoom range.

You're right. I'll probably not sell mine either. It's been a great camera for me.

Camera lens should arrive tomorrow, along with a spare battery. I always keep a spare wherever I go, sometimes 2 or 3. Not much irritates me more than running out of juice!

I have an Pentax SF1 with an SMC Pentax-M zoom 1: 4.5 80mm ~ 200mm as well as a couple other lenses for that camera.

Will this lens be able to be used w/ the Olympus PEN E-PL1 ?

If it's a Pentax K lens it should work. Try calling and asking these guys. http://www.rainbowimaging.biz/shop/c...category=3&p=3

I use an SMC Pentax-M 50/1.7 with a Rainbowimaging adapter on my PEN, works great. Just be aware that the adapters aren't precise; they will focus past infinity, a minor annoyance.

Carl:

Thanks

Info I have found on the lens:


http://camerapedia.wikia.com/wiki/Pentax_SFX_(SF1)

Quote:
The Pentax SFX (SF-1 in US), dating from 1987, was the world's first autofocus 35mm film SLR with built-in TTL auto flash.....


...Lens mount: Pentax K-AF. (Can also accept all K-mount manual lenses, and M42 with an adaptor.)....
