Some more shots taken with my SMC Pentax-M* 1:4 300mm.
I'm getting used to this lens now.....

Firstly a "macro" shot (taken from 4m or 13ft away!) 100%crop


And secondly a couple of plain bird shots.





Cheers from me!

Well done.

Just acquired the smc Pentax-m 200 f4... so compact and light, amazing. Took a shot of this dome @ 1/4 mile away, cropped area still shines!!! Thanks for looking...

I was thinking (and perhaps I have already asked this?) and do my macro's constitute as part of the M club?

edit: Merry Christmas (or almost)!

from yeatzee to all of you:

Anything posted in here and shot with an M lens!

I think this post right here is number 2000, but if you have anything you want to throw in, I'll let the window slide for a day.

Oh snap, I was post 2000

My bad, I would rather have the last post be an image. Im editing some I just took with my broken M 50mm F/1.7 (remember the one that fell out of my car and rolled down a drive way breaking the glass/aperture a bit?) I'll edit my 2000 post with the image(s)

edit: I'll do some quick jpeg edits and just throw em up and edit the raws later they aren't that good, but still worth posting IMO

Hard to believe there have been 2000 posts in this thread you started two years ago now Jay. As I recall you showed me how to post an image in the forum in this thread. I was a bit intimidated by the "new technology" of my K10 at the time. It reminds me as well of how much I have learned from this forum and folks like yourself. Perhaps more importantly it has shown everyone how good the old M series glass can perform with a little time and effort. Thanks for starting this thread and so many others Jay.

M 50mm 1.7

When I saw this beauty, brand-new, in-box, going on Ebay without any bids a couple of years ago, I couldn't believe it. I put a $23 bid in, and "won" the lens. When it arrove, and I saw it was, in fact, new & unused, I immediately sold my seasoned, $40 copy of the lens--there is no way I would sell this copy. For $23 it offers amazing sharpness, even good wide-open. I can use it in low light, or can landscape with it for amazing results. I have shot this same falls now with close to 10 lenses and this lens probably handled it best--
F8--2 secs--no filter

Great photos. What body do you have, and how did you control exposure?

JT, that looks great. Well shot! Expensive lenses don't make great results, a good photographer does.

Nate, thank you! Your shot from a week and a half ago, (love that shot), here, with the M 50 1.4 surely illustrates your point--I am in your camp on this one.
