    This is so cool! Tried out my two old pentax lens that I almost gave away years ago. Way better than expected.
    The first two are with a Takumar 135mm [email protected] f4 I think(got to learn to pay more attention).
    Next two are with a Pentax 50mm 2.0 smc, 1st @f2.8, 2nd @ f4.

    Woohoo NICE ! Doesn't surprise me, as my own favorite in another range (50mm and about) is the PK 55/1.8

    Those are some very sharp images.

    Darn good thing you didn't give those lenses away. Those shots are fantastic.

    Hey Claude, nice move hanging on to those lenses. I have the Tak 135/2.5 (Bayonet) and it's my second one. I gave the first one to my son and then I had to go buy another one. I've come close to selling it several times, but I just can't bring myself to do it.

    Thanks for the encouragement. I've read here that this "Old lens thing" is addictive. I'm hooked! I think the only complaint is that I have to notice more which lens and what f stop. The 135mm is not very good wide open but by f4 it's pretty good.
    Thanks Claude
