Pentax K10D, 28-80mm f/3.5-4.7 SMC Pentax-FA
I had trouble getting this 28-80 zoom to deliver consistently good results on my Pentax K10D DSLR. That lens was from the film era and would have been right at home on one of Pentax’s autofocus film SLR like the MZ-30. For whatever reason, it wasn’t a good match for this DSLR. So I bought the lens that would have come with a K10D in a kit, the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 SMC Pentax-DA AL. It’s a match made in heaven.
I’ve sold the K10D and that 18-55mm lens. Now that I own the Nikon Df, I won’t use the K10D anymore. I’m pleased that it goes to someone who will put it to excellent use.
I still have the 28-80 lens, however, because someday I’ll try Pentax’s autofocus SLRs.
