    Got the adapter for the 50mm 2.0 Pentax lens I picked up from our local Goodwill.

    Choices

    Only strange thing is that the Pentax focuses backwards from every other lens I have handeled. By this I mean you turn the focus ring in the opposite direction to get to infinity.

    Now I have two lenses that are near identical and need to decided which to keep. This 50mm 2.0 and my 45mm Rokkor 2.0

    Shots from the Rokkor:

    Yeah, try being a Pentax shooter and buy third party lenses. It one of the reasons I never used MF lenses on my dslr. The other being I could never see well enough to focus them. But the bass-ackwards focus turn thing does get confusing.
