Gear Road Map & Planning:

My current planning as of March 2011
  • Get K-5 when price is closer to 1.2K
  • Get a new DA 21mm limited. I have been missing DA 21mm limited. The alternative is to have a manual 20mm lens

Past Gear

This is perhaps the skeleton in my closet of LBA shameful.

Re: you roadmap, consider a Sigma 28/1.8. It's sharp from f2 onwards, fast, no distortion, and about ~$300 new. Works pretty darn well as a macro, at 1:2.3.

Thanks for the suggestion, it is one of the lens that I will study.

get the 35 macro, its sweet!

I second the vote for the 35 macro, as it is quite a versatile lens. :)

Another thought I had was that since you have the Tamron 28-75 already, which works on both film and digital, how about getting either the DA12-24 or waiting on the Tamron 10-24 like you mentioned? It really doesn't make a lot of sense to get a 17-50 or 16-50 when you would have most of that range (and then some) covered by the 2 lenses on your digital? If you like shooting extra wide on film, then keep the Tokina. :)

you are about to leave pentax? and move to Nikon?

Hin Man said...

I am not leaving Pentax. I thought about a 2nd system with Nikon D90. But I have placed a halt on the plan, and revisit later on. And I did get Pentax DA 35mm f/2.8 limited instead of 31mm limited.

I like your blog. Looks like you have a worse case of LBA than I do. I just picked up a Tokina made VS1 70-210. Did a google search and found your blog. I now remember reading a few other times about other lenses I had found.

Hin, it's Nino. You have definitely taken your CBA/LBA and done a lot. Let me know if you want to sell your Yashica 124G, I am looking for a gift for my sister.

Oh, it was a pleasant tour to your tech world and excited diving through the useful posts. In this post I was very much surprised to see how you explained Hins camera gear featuring details with technical skills. That's really praiseworthy. I like the way you delivered all the related information.
By the way, if any photo lovers looking for good and trusted review on Night Vision Goggles or binocular or camera, Night Vision Insights will be a good place to go.
