Pentax and Ricoh

Well today I got my new lens from the Parcelforce depot in North West London. Crazy import and duty to pay but it's still worth it. This lens is fantastic.


  1. Hello Tom

    Is the special different to the limited? Thought there was only the limited in 43mm.
    By what means are you bolting it to the M Mount?

  2. Hi Jason,

    Pentax made a small amount of Leica thread mount versions. I think around 2000 in total. From what I've read it's pretty much the same as the standard version except it's "adapted" to fit on a Leica, or in my case a Ricoh. I have not had it long but I really like it.

  3. Wow!
    You learn something new everyday. I have the 77mm and over joyed with it.
    Hoping the Ricoh pentax tie up will result in a module I can you use on the GXR.
    Thinking this is more likely than finding what you have, must have been on the same shelf as hens teeth and rocking horse poo.
