Flying Fickle Finger Of Fate

People of a certain age will remember this catch phrase/line... for all the other folks, an alternate title would be "I told you it's over there!"

Lots of wine on the vine in that photo! The local reds were much prized by my sister and her family, when they lived there in the 1980s.

Pentax 67 200mm f 4.0

Here is a 200mm lens to love--sharp with excellent rendering, here mounted on the 645Z.

Not only is it 200mm but it's also old, heavy AND manual focus. Certainly, perfect traits of an unloved lens . . . . . . until you see the results.

Garden shots with 200mm

The Pentax-M 200mm f 4.0 offers typical great M build quality as well as plenty of sharpness, color fidelity, and nice rendering with nicely blurred backgrounds when not stopping down. MFD is about 6 feet, making this lens somewhat unsuitable for my flower photography, though you can get in some shots by trying as the attached shots show. This is my go-to lens for zoo trips, and with anything much longer all I can capture are tails and tusks. The lens is also the one I take for children's school concerts, and it has plenty of reach and sharpness to handle gymnasium events.

I envy you all with the beautiful old manual focus 200s. I just cannot focus mf lenses reliably anymore, almost everything is OOF, mirrorless helps a little, but not enough to really enjoy it.

So, keep rocking those lenses.

Storms in the area overnight, clouds hanging around this morning. K-1, DA*200.
