Tak 135/2.5 on a K-01

I'm loving manual focus on the K-01, and hence I'm using the old lenses more often now. Here's a shot taken this afternoon. I think this was shot af f/4. I find that wider open can be a little soft, and prone to CA if the contrast is high.

That's a nice little lens, isn't it? I sold mine because it was redundant with the FA version and also close to the A100, but I thought it was pretty good, as you've shown here.

Interesting to hear the K-01 does well with MF lenses. I find the K-5 is challenging with MF - my K200D somehow does better.

Beautiful shot. Manual focusing on the K-01 really is great. I'm also using old lenses more and even new lens on MF. My macro lens is a great example of that.
