Most handsome lens for K-01? Wedding photos!

This is Pentax's Pride and Prejudice moment. The exceedingly handsome and well bred lens meets the smart but socially awkward K-01. (Where beauty is in the eye of the beholder!)

The perfect marriage IMO is the Takumar 24mm 3.5 with hood. So I thought I'd take some wedding photos.

That hood and those large engraved yellow focal numbers match very well. Let's hope their children are as well balanced!

Interesting words, not perhaps how I'd of quite put it.

You'll certainly be easy to find amongst the wedding crowd at least, enjoy the day.

You need to shoot some weddings now and post your shots here. Don't forget to do a write up of your experience with this set up

Better idea: the petite Vivitar 28/2.8. No hood. Don't have pictures cause no adapter yet, but will post when available.

I think that combo looks really great! I think there is a thread with K-01 cameras and all sorts of different lenses mounted, even some fairly exotic ones. A lot of the older lenses seem to be a perfect match.

Yes, a nice looking pair, especially with the hood.

Hi DVaughan, yes it should have been a white wedding! (White K-01 probably does look better ).

This lens is a few tinnies short when it comes to taking photos (1) indoors and (2) with any moving objects/guests using the K-01. Other than that it would be perfect. Especially for technicolor-feel flower arrangements (with no DoF) and building shots.
