Yea quite rare to find, k-13 with the bad attitude, at peninsula wanted $460 for just the body.

But ebay I found less than $200 with lens and limited edition black.

Tested the lens that came with it with Pentax k-x.

All shot at ISO 3200 with k-x.

f1,8


f2,8


f8, purposely underexposed cos handheld.


f1,8 is a bit soft, but not so bad, f2.8 gets a bit better and f8 is the sweet spot.

lol...that guy conned me to believe that his Velborn Ultra Maxi L tripod can take load of up to 4kg (specs only 2kg max) & demo to me in the shortest tripod height.
When I asked how's the stability in full length/height, he told me short already stable, longer even more stable :bsmilie:
Somemore quoted me $195 where I can get from Mr Quek at $165. ;(
Likes to talk all the way, doesn't give customer chance to ask/talk. :sweat:
Will avoid this shop next time. :(

OMG, did you ended up buying it?

Actually peninsula area a lot of shops need to avoid. especially those that sell MF lens and body.
