Bought Some New Lenses
Posted By: Kerrowdown, 06-26-2015, 02:41 AM

Several Northern Hemisphere lenses and just one Southern Hemisphere lens.

My “Femme Fatale” (SMC Pentax-A 50mm F2.8 Macro) is turning out to be quite a darling.

He he catchy ! Great performance from this lens - I got it and love it to bits - it is so small and yet capable! I wouldn't even switch it to AF version , the mf focusing is so enjoyable.

Brilliant glass that is in the photo, I thing we could safely say you got yourself a new lens with 23 elements in 2 groups ?

Certainly looks that way and they're manual focus too, just how I like 'em.

Aye, I can't take all the credit... some must go to my "Femme Fatale" too.
