Rockdocktor, those colours are unbelievable!

Anyhow, here's some from the M 50mm 1:1.7. Cafe is Kodak BW400CN, motorbike is Ilford Delta 400

Taken from my first MF lens (M50mm f/2) a year or two ago. I don't use it very often, but it still works like a champ.

Went out with a few fellow Pentaxians last night to shoot Christmas lights in downtown Littleton, CO. Aside from a few shot I took with a borrowed DA14 (nice lens, but what it really does is make me want to see the DA15), I used the M28/2.8 and M100/2.8 only. All handheld with my K200D, mostly at ISO 800 or 1100.

M28/2.8:





M100/2.8:

Mark, really like those shots, good job in a tough lighting situation.


Here's one of our cats in his favorite napping sanctuary - a bathroom sink.

Trust a cat! (And what a byooootiful cat it is). Perfect everything in these shots. Fine effort.
The M100f2.8 really has come to be my favourite lens.

Is he asking to have his teeth brushed and flossed, or is he just showing off?

Those cat shots are ridiculously sharp. Gotta love the old primes!

Lovely, atmospheric image in the cafe. I don't understand why so many film shooters sneer at the Kodak BW400CN. Sure, it doesn't pull the emotions as much as Tri-X and the like, but for quiet, contemplative scenes like this I think it works really well. Nice one.

M 85/2

Here is a contribution from me with an artistic shot taken with the 85/2. Not 100% sure about what aperture I used but i think it was closed down a stop or so.

M200 f4

Finally got a chance to use the M200 f4 for birdies! All wide open with Av and handheld. I am very please how sharp it turned out.

Just joined

I just purchased a 35mm/f2.8 yesterday for only $5! It was from a Japanese vendor at the Yokota base exchange. He mostly sells Japanese souveniers, but he had a basket with a few lenses marked Y500 each. I've been using the lens with my Ricoh 35mm so far, but I'll get some shots with my k100d super tomorrow.
