"Kids today" There I finally said it, now I'm officially an old fart.
Welcome to the club! It's a relief to finally come out and say it, right?

@Pepe: Tino's looking pretty shaggy in that shot. He's only about 1/2 that size underneath all the hair!

That is a wonderful photo Vladimir. It has a nice vintage feeling to it.

Nice set -- reminds me I need to do more shooting with the copy of the 75-150 I picked up recently.

Agree - these are very nice shots. I also have a copy - it's probably my "Best lens that gets the least use" . I should put it in my bag right now while I'm thinking about it!

Thanks guys, I only got the M 75-150 recently and the image quality is surprisingly good, I stopped down to F8 for most of my shots and I think everything shot at 150mm, because it's just too much hassle changing the SR setting for me :P

Hi everyone, I've been wading through this thread [on page 78] and been enjoying it immensely and admiring the great photos taken with the different M lenses. I bought the K5 some months ago, along with the Kit Lenses, 18-55AF and 55-200, but I do like using manual mode, and love the old lenses, plus I have to confess that I owned a Pentax SLR back in the 70's. So I've bought, initially, the SMC M f2 50mm and the SMC M f2.8 28mm. I've also got the Tamron CF Tele Macro F3.8 80-210MM , Tamron f3.5 28-70mm. Sigma f2.8 24mm Super Wide II, and lastly for fun a Makinon f2.8 24mm. But it's the old Pentax glass I intend to pursue so I also intend to buy the f1.4 M 5Omm, f1.7 M 50mm, f2.8 M 135 mm in the New Year along and then later add to the collection. I was looking through the fairly comprehensive list of Pentax lenses posted in the Wiki and to my surprise the f2 M SMC 50mm wasn't listed although the 55mm's were. I wonder if anyone would be kind enough to tell the date Pentax started making the f2 M SMC 50mm, it's always nice to know the history of the lenses. I live in the UK and I'm afraid we don't have the Moose, Bears, or colourful birds that some of you guys are able to take shots of, but we do have the scenery, and our light is not so blue in intensity!!

You mean this one? SMC Pentax-M 50mm F2 Reviews - M Prime Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database
Pretty good lens in the right settings, imo. I'm thinking it, along with the rest of the m-lenses, were produced in the mid-70's.

edit: make that late '70s (thanks baro-nite!)
