Nice shots, interesting to see a M50 mounted on a Sony NEX. Looks like it works very well for you.
thank's, it does

Nice, very nice! Seeing your photos makes me want to give the m4/3 another try. Last summer I discovered how nicely the G10 plays with manual lenses. IMHO, M's and Taks work very well with my Pany, stopped down metering is very accurate, no green button, Electronic View Finder, screen stays very bright, and magnification of subject in VF helps with more accurate focusing...
]
obviously it also works great on a m4/3 too! Personally I prefer APS-C sized sensor and the NEX works great with manual lenses.
If I use the EVF focusing is somewhat more fast and as accurate as I achieve with K-x + viewfinder enlarger + Katzeye + already a lot a practice, more accurate if I use enlarged view.
Metering is quite amazing. Aperture set on lens in A mode + Auto ISO the camera chooses lowest ISO + appropriate shutter speed down to abt. 1/60 and then starts upping the ISO to expose very correctly. At low light I use S mode + auto ISO to choose slowest shutter speed I reckon I can handhold which, with a 50mm lens, because of the great versatility how to hold the camera, goes all the way down to 1/15 and longer even without IS, and the camera will adjust ISO to expose correctly. All that without having to push any button. ( the samples shown above were taken handheld at low light with the lens wide open, #1 with 1/30sec ISO 1000, #2 1/25sec ISO 2000, #3 1/15sec ISO 2500 )

best greetings,
Andreas

very impressive result with the M 75-150 f4!!

Yes, wow, I love Pentax and have a resistance against Sony, but...

I use a cheap Chinese adapter ( bondscamera ) which has a bit of a tight fit on the Pentax side but it's working alright
I am afraid no recommendations for a PK > NEX adapter to be found, but for other NEX adapter recommendations see: All those adapters...: Sony NEX Talk Forum: Digital Photography Review

best greetings,
Andreas

Thanks for sharing your experience with sony-pentax mix. I have been reading reviews on the NEX 7 am am giving strong consideration to getting one and keeping my K20. I am not a huge fan of Sony, but what I read about the NEX7 by multiple sources is impressive.

Yes... I love the 75-150, it is such a sharp lens wide open and the IQ is super. Supposedly, the Pentax A 35-105 is a "stack of primes", I have that lens, the 75-150 outperforms it by a bunch! Paul those are very nice shot!

Panasonic G10 + Pentax M 50/1.7

I used my wife's Pany G10 with the M50/1.7 - took a few practice shots and the way the m4/3 works with manual lenses is just outstanding. Metering and focusing is made so simple, no green button...

M 50 1.7.The first ever vintage lens I got. Back when it can still be had for a decent price (and I'm only talking about late last year too ). The one guilty of starting this thing called LBA.

Well for a first vintage lens, you've started near the top of the pile.. for their price they are a fantastic and hard to beat chunk of glass. I love mine, spends almost as much time on the camera as the 43 ltd.

Yes, quality no doubt. Though lately, it's had to share the K-x a bit more with my SMC Tak 50 1.4 and 55 1.8, and the baby of the bunch, DA 35 2.4. The only little issue I have with it is that it loves to flare. At least my copy does, even with a decent hood (I've been using either a Tak 135 hood or a Fujica 100/135 hood). Other than that, I've got nothing but props for it all around...And it will forever be known as the one that got me hooked.

I picked up a straight metal tube hood that's fantastic.. I have to be almost pointing directly at a bright light source to get any flaring.

If you're M 50/1.7 flares with this hood on it, maybe something happened to the lens coating. The Takumar 135 hood is longer than the lens... (or are you also using a filter on the lens? Which can sometimes cause unwanted reflections)

I'll try and find samples later on how it flares. It's definitely not caused by a filter. I always just thought that's how its coating behaved since the glass looks perfect. It's probably the cleanest of all my vintage primes.
