Pentax shooting through Nikon Glass

This is a shot with my newly acquired Pentax FA50/1.4 (from Don Kittle) through my new eye glasses ( with Nikon lenses ) of my kid's car. This is a near 100% shot.

Its a double-test of sorts.

btw: I'm quite happy with my new FA50!

Thank you, yes the off-brand is working out well. All kidding aside, the blurred part is roughly what I see without my glasses on. My last pair of goggles were the cheapo optical plastic ones. They worked fine when new but the coatings started to bubble off after a couple of years. I decided to pay the extra cash and get the upgraded (off-brand) N1kon lenses with all the coatings and I am really shocked at the difference. They are really THAT good!
