    After reading a lot about using these old lens I realized I still had my old Pentax stuff. So dug it out from the closet and here it is. I don't think they are the greatest lens in the world but it will be fun to play with. Just need to buy an adapter and a way we go.

    I think you'll be happily surprised at what you can get out of these lenses. I have the version right before yours of the 135 and other than a bit of CA wide open it makes some very nice pics. The 50 should perform well also.

    You can go here for info/reviews on Pentax lenses.

    Thanks Deadbear and Bimjo. Also thanks for the link. I'm even more anxious to try them now. Going to Florida for a few months late next week. Will order an adapter when I get there.

    Nice shot if I may add - gives that old vintage look ;)
