    I was digging around at my father in laws house last weekend and found an old camera of his. Could I do anything with these lenses on my Nex do you think? I am very new to cameras and taking pictures, so know nothing about this stuff. The camera is a Pentax ME super SE. The lens on it says Pentax 49 L 39(UV). The other lens says Pentax Focal MC 2x Converter (20-06-75)

    Oh good. I just ordered the Rainbowimaging adapter on Amazon and will get it Saturday. Can't wait to try it out now. Thanks!

    Love this lens! I've never used a manual focus before, so it's a bit tricky. But it is also a lot of fun and am having a blast on this rainy weekend.

    Well, you've stepped upon the slippery slope of legacy lenses. There's no going back now. :)

    Excellent pictures! And I agree...I will see you checking out ebay and forums looking for other legacy gems. :D

    Still in love with this lens (50mm f/1.7). And yes, I have scoped Ebay a few times now and then for more old lenses as well. Definitely hooked. ;)
