All my Pentax K lenses

Hi all,

I posted a video on my channel about all my Pentax K-mount lenses.

It's funny, after putting them all in the same place, going through one by
one and looking for photos I made with each, it doesn't feel like such a
big collection as I thought I had.

Interesting how different two lens collections can be.

21 lenses, of which the vast majority are manual focus, and nothing over 150mm.

I've only held on to 17 of the Pentax K-mount lenses I've owned over the years,
and only six of those are manual focus.

Here's my list (also sorted widest first):

DA  10-17/3.5-4.5 Fish-Eye
DA* 16-50/2.8
DA  18-55/3.5-5.6
M  28/2.8
FA  28-105/4.6
M  40-80/2.8-4
A  50/1.7
A  50/1.4
F  50/1.7
FA  50/1.4
DA* 50-135/2.8
DA* 60-250/4
FA* 80-200/2.8
FA  80-320/4.5-5.6
A  135/2.8
A*  300/2.8
FA* 250-600/5.6

Three fondly-remembered lenses I've owned but parted with:
M  50/1.4
M  80-200/4.5
A*  200/2.8

I don't have quite as meny lenses on my shelf as Juan does,
but his collection is definitely a lot easier to carry around!

I suspect that his entire collection is easier to carry around than your 250-600.

Well done, Juan. I enjoyed that. It reminded me of an acquaintance down
in the Cape who spoke about "rummaging" through his box of lenses.

Nice list!

First thing I notice comparing it to my collection, is that I am a lot
cheaper than you are! :D

Back when a Pentax was my main camera, with the K3 (I had the KP but by
that time I was already doing mirrorless), my main lenses were the 21, the
12-24, the 17-70 and either the FA28 or FA35.

So I did have a whole set of everything I needed in AF lenses. The rest are
me just hoarding to be frank...

I'd gladly suffer it if I was fortunate enough to have one!
