Thanks, Steve! These are my first shots with this lens. Seems to me there's a pastel-like quality to the photos it produces, which I find very pleasing.

Sleeping Canada Goose

Taken at Elizabeth Lake, Cranbrook, BC Saturday 16 Apr 2011. Elizabeth Lake is a wetland preserve frequented by many migratory wild fowl. There have been so many really good images by others with this old lens, I felt I had to post this one.

K10D, SMC-P M 400/5.6, ISO 100, 1/350 @ f/8, Auto exposure adjustment in LR 3.3. This image is uncropped. The old "bazooka" can do a really nice job if you treat her right.

Thanks, Tom - I agree, some fantastic work being posted here. Those M's are nice lenses, seems hard to take a bad shot with one. I wish I had a few more in my bag!

Hello M folks. I don't often post pictures (too humbled by the wonderful posts here) but I thought I would give it a go with something a bit different. I tried out my M135 - 3.5 with a set of extension tubes in the garden yesterday. Wish I'd used a tripod as the results seem promising. These appear to be about 1:2 when compared to my macro lenses.

In the afternoon I went for a walk along the Thames at Greenwich, taking my little used, and rapparently uncommon M35-70 2.8-3.5. Seems sharp enough to me

First two obviously the M135. f5.6 I believe

The last two, both f5.6
