my new toy

grabbed one of these on ebay, arrived today, I'll post some snaps over in the M club when I've played a bit!

Anyone got/had/used one, any tips?

will be using it on the k-x.

Put your camera in M mode. Learn to set your own exposures. Learn to focus the lens (make sure your diopter is set right). Then have some fun with it.

Those are my tips.
