An oldie, indeed. I still have my original M50/1.4 I bought in Hong Kong in 1966, while in the US Navy. It still performs as good now as it did the day I bought it. It looks almost new, still. Here's a shot taken this past summer, using it with a reversing ring.

Very nice ... I just bought a 49mm PK reverse ring out of the UK and need to try it out.

Thanks for the inspiration (and reminder to go use it). J

The photo of the bee was my first attempt at using the reversing ring in the field. The weather conditions were perfect and the bees were very cooperative! I was amazed at how well such a simple device works. By all means, please try it and post some photos of your results. I have a 52mm RR also, but have yet to use it.

Will do on the future capture(s).

And small world ... I ordered a 52mm RR for the K 50/1.4 (and other 52's) at the same time.

They were not expensive at all, and it was only a few pounds () more. J

I didn't think M lenses were available in in 1966. I thought the K mount came around the early to mid '70s

Ops.... my mistake. It's an M42 mount. But, a f:1.4, nonetheless. For my Spotmatic.

Must be a Super Takumar like mine, my uncle also got it with a Spotmatic, which I also have. I never tried it with a RR, now I will.

It was a festival of crashes and falls... lots of riders retired and many did even before the halfway point...

I can well believe that. The best part of cyling in heavy rain is of course the fact that bicycle tyres are not really designed for those conditions. To make it worse, the back wheel is constantly sending a stream of water straight up your back!

Nice one! The M50/1.7 is such a great lens - here's another tractor shot taken with that lens:

Hey! Wait a minute! Is this the SAME tractor? It was at the Western Idaho State Fair this past summer.

Not sure if they're the same, Dewman - but pretty close! Your Farmall looks like it's still operational - the one in my photo is just a decoration...

Yours looks pretty well in operational standard to me! Nice shot too, with my favourite lens.
