A few more shots with M28/2.8 from a day trip to Hailuoto island on the northern west coast of Finland.

Harbor on the west point of the island:


Light house and the beach:


Old fishermen huts. I think these are summer houses nowadays:


On the way back we took ferry instead of the ice road to amuse children. It also gave me a chance to take a few more shots. There is also a skating track to island between ferry and ice road.

It is almost beyond my comprehension that the images in this thread were made using "cheap" second generation K-mount lenses four decades old.

Considering what they are capable of I would call them "dirty cheap"

Morning walk in Oulu with M200/4

Toripolliisi statue. Translation could be something like Market Pollice statue and no not a typo


Old harbor storehouses by the market square. Nowadays used as bars, cafes and stores. 5 shots panorama.


This shot taken just a few steps away from previous. City theater on the left and main library as main subject. 6 shots panorama.


From between the theater and library you find the pathway bridge to small island in front of the downtown.


A view from the bridge. Panorama of quite a many shots


An other view to the fore mentioned island. 8 shots panorama.

They are great lenses. Ofcourse there is just best shots at here, but still if you have time and practise quite a bit, these are cheap, and can woop some expensive lenses a$$. Ofcourse modern lenses are better, but still.

The problems I have with the M 400/5.6 are a direct result of user error in 99.99% of the cases. It does produce PF and CA in abundance under some circumstances, but it can still come up with some very nice images. This is a 1500 px (25%) crop from the K-3. The image was taken through a double paned patio door which is not the cleanest at this time of year. The snow drift outside it is 1 m (3 ft) deep, making it a bit difficult to get to it to clean it.

Exposure was at ISO 800; 1/500 @ f/8. Shutter speed was set by green button so Mr. Pentax would have applied centre weighted metering to the feeder. Post processing was to slightly increase exposure for detail in the head, remove green and purple fringing and slightly reduce the noise in the dark bird's feathers. Given a bit more light so I could reduce the ISO to 400 and stop down to f/11, this would be a much better image. It would have helped a bit if my focus was tighter also. The minimal depth of field can be seen with the beak out of focus slightly and the eye almost perfect.

[EDIT] I just used my DoF Pro App and the depth of field of 400mm @ f/8 from 30 ft away is from 6" !!!! No wonder I have focus problems with the old girl. The feeder is 10" from front to back. I said most of my problems were user error

Friends and I referred to that statue as "Fat Cop". Nice bars there in the summer.

That's a good name. It's missing the nuance of local dialect thought, but that's pretty much impossible to translate to other language. How did you end up there? I*m from the south Finland, but went to study in the university there.

Univ. of Oulu students came to Pittsburg State Univ. in Pittsburg, KS as part of an exchange program. Pitt State worked hard for many years to get international students to come to the college. I met them while working on my second degree, and after graduation, I came to visit. I went to Finland three times over the years, although it's been a while since I was there.

Here I am in 2007;



Taken with my old K100D and the 18-55 kit lens from 2006. I really wish I had been better at photography for those trips and brought better lenses.

Sorry to derail the M thread.

Small world. Thanks for the story.

Summertime is the right time to visit. The amount of light is quite amazing.

Yes, but easier to get over jet lag if you can sleep in / no sun constantly coming in the windows around the clock. I look back at those trips and laugh at myself, in a good way. Good learning experience.

Which is the longer M prime you prefer, the 100 f2.8 or the 120? I know you've posted this before, in this thread, but I don't know how much I want to go digging if I can help it.

120 is the best lens between 100 and 200mm.
