Pentax K1 II~ Girl Portrait Shots (New shots with Old glass!)
Lens: Vivitar 75-205 f3.8 MC Camera: Pentax K1 II Photo Location: Fort Lauderdale, Florida 
Posted By: SteveNunez, 12-22-2019, 12:34 PM

Hey guys, today I got the chance to play with an old Vivitar 75-205 f3.8 MC lens and took some shots of my daughter using the K1 II...it was fun!
My daughter is used to super fast instant focus (I normally use an A7III and she uses a Canon M50) so she had to be patient while I acquired focus with this all manual lens- but it was fun.....I'll do this again but I'll use an AF lens next time.
The lens is really sharp wide open at f3.8 and I didn't have to sharpen the shots at all which is rare- the colors were nice too- using old glass is fun, what do you guys think?

Beautiful shots of a beautiful and photogenic young lady, Steve!

That lens has very pleasing rendering, especially for a zoom. The compositions are lovely, too, and your daughter helped immensely with nice poses and facial expressions. Great work, both of you

Thanks- she doesn’t like the type of poses I typically shoot of her- she likes the playful silly “Instagram’ type poses. She has an EOS M50 but tends to use her cellphone.....she’s my favorite model!

She was intrigued by my interest in shooting with an old manual lens knowing I have newer AF lenses but she does like the older stuff and even took a photography course and likes shooting film!

I forgot how much I paid for this lens but I see a few on eBay for $9! I think I paid a bit more than that but they can be found super inexpensively.
Have fun with your photography- that’s what it’s all about for me.
Glad you guys liked these- cheers.

A great series of photos of a lovely girl!

That lens has done a great job and you have also done a great job utilising it. I wish my daughter would pose for photos now, but its so uncool now!
