Oh my... I must confess this is not my collection(I can only wish ).
Shouldn't this lens pr0n collection be labeled NSFW (not safe for wives)?

I believe that statement was about the 60's
I don't remember too much of the 60s.
I wish I could forget most of the 70s.
Yes, I was there for both; what a mess!

FWIW: I was on the Sunset Strip in '66, the Haight-Ashbury in '67, the East Village in '68, and back in the Haight & vicinity from 69-74, except for lengthy stays in Hollyweird and Mendocino. And I was an active participant, not a casual observer. I'm lucky to have any memory left at all. There was the time Leon Russell picked me up hitchhiking...

The lens arrived today in excellent shape. Looks near new, inspection sticker and all. Can't wait to take it out this weekend! I REALLY like the lens hood, wish I could get more like it for my other lenses.

Here it is attached to my poor mans SV

I don't remember who or where it came from(perhaps someone can help identify).
A number of the photos belong to CarbonR (See I can raed! ) I believe he is a member here and posts on mflenses as well. A young fella from France as I recall.

Congrats! I recently bought a mint one from a forum member (PentaxMom Felua). Then I bought a well beaten (read: street-cred) shade for it.

Now all I need is a suitable camera for it. I don't so much like shooting manual lenses with my APS-C Pentax DSLRs, but was rather planning to get a MILC with focus-peaking. But that still remains to be done. So I can't really tell much about the IQ, but mechanically the lens is a true beauty.

As much as I like the looks of it, it isn't nearly deep enough on APS-C.
