Tokina Tokina SZ-X 70-210 f4-5.6

Can across this manual focus zoom. and took it (along with a yellow Lab) on walk. A little putsy to use - but I thought the bokeh was pretty nice...

Pentax/Cosina FA 100 f3.5 Macro

It's so unloved it shows up as Pentax or Cosina in the Exif... so the camera doesn't even give it respect...
But it takes good pictures...
Here's a bit of ivy... on the K1

35mm f/2.8 Auto Chinon

Not only was the lens lonely, but so was the camera it was attached to, a Yashica TL-E. So I had them both out for a stroll in New York this past weekend with some new P3200TMZ:

Cheers, Allan

Lonely lens Mamiha-Sekor 80mm f 1.9 N

My lonely lens is the fastest medium format lens ever manufactured at f 1.9, equal to something like f 0.9 in 135 mm format. However, alas, registry distance prevents it from being adapted to Pentax medium format cameras, so I have not used it very much at all until the Pentax K-1 was introduced. I found a Mamiya - K mount adapter, and here are some views from my garden to provide a few results.

KIT: Pentax K-1 with Mamiya 80mm f 1.9 N.
