Lens: Pentacon M42 mount 50mm f1.8 Camera: Pentax K3 Photo Location: Corfu ISO: 250 Shutter Speed: 1/500s Aperture: F2.8 
Posted By: Top banana, 07-20-2017, 01:56 AM

whilst on holiday I tried out an old M42 mount Pentacon 50mm f1.8 lens that came as part of a bundle that I was given - I have never used any M42 lenses on my K3 so stuck an adaptor on and started shooting..this lens is a bit 'fluffy' at f1.8 but at f2.8 it seems to give a nice effect....

Now that shot is the epitome of . . . . . cool.

A perfect cover for a jazz album.

Very pretty black and white. The contrast is amazingly cool and interesting.

A fine classy image this one, very film noir feeling about it.

Awesome pic. Like a shot from a David Lynch film.
