Here's a little ebay tip you may or may not know.



If you have a Pentax lens to sell - best with the M42 ones - Then put Cannon and/or Nikon in the title.



Plenty of blurb in the description about how an adpter can be bought cheaply on ebay.



Watch the price skyrocket!!



Cannon and Nikon owners can't get enough of the old Pentax lenses, as they keep seeing pics far suprior to their own taken with this old gear.



Just a thought

Nice idea Roy, but I have been told to put a hold on spending at the moment.



Getting married 070907 so all funds going for that and the honeymoon afterwards.



Plus I did just sell a few bits on ebay and bought the grip for my K10D,plus a few other bits...



Other half not happy at present... esp when I showed her my next lens - the Bigma (£748 over here!!!)



Still, happy days...





Darren

Now there's food for thought ... Thanks for that tip Darren, I haven't sold anything on Ebay as yet, but do have some items I could part with, M42 at that . ... Jack

Thanks Dawg



Going to Scotland. She's been before, but I've never been - Got Edinburgh Zoo down as a definite visit!



Plus plenty of scenery round the lochs.



Should be a good trip.
