Couple of flower photos with the mirror lens

Two flower shots with the K-1 and Mamiya 500mm f 8.0 Reflex/mirror lens. On these shots, I kicked up the ISO to 3200 to yield shutter speeds of 1/160 and 1/200 seconds. That and the SR feature of the K-1 make this kit pretty much hand holdable even at 500mm.

Not about a Pentax lens, but Barney Britton over at DPR has given some love to the Nikon 1000/11 Mirror...

It's an older MTO, I think. It came in a wooden case with a selection of huge filters for b&w shooting, and it looks like this: MTO 1000 10/1000 m42 mirror meniscus russian lens / top35mm.com

That appears to be much older than mine. Mine is the Rubinar 1000/10 made in 1998. It has some different features.

Few shots with Mamiya 500mm

Some sample shots with the K-1 and Mamiya 645 C 500mm f 8.0 reflex. These are JPEGs hand-held and SOC.

New reflex lens just received today

I just got a copy of Tokina 500mm f 8.0 reflex in MD Minolta mount. Minolta mount lenses on Pentax have to be used with an adapter containing glass to compensate for incompatible cross-camera registry distances, and this ordinarily reduces lens acuity. Even so, this reflex lens is at least as sharp as the one I have been sampling from Mamiya. Both are 500mm f 8.0. Snaps below are with K-1.

Tokina 500mm f 8.0 reflex in MD Minolta mount
if you're going to try a mount swap, this is the lens to do it with - no complications. Get a junk pk mount lens from somewhere as a source of a pk mount. preferable to using an optical adapter IMO.

Back when I was shooting Canon, I converted my Minolta MD mount Tokina 500/8 to M42, for which I already had an adapter to Canon EOS. Yes, pretty simple: it must have been for me to get it working!

Here's what I was able to do with it on my 20D:

Documentary



Poetry



I've since sold this modified lens on, preferring the performance of the Tamron 55BB.

Thanks for the advice. Sorry to miss your response, but Holidays have been hectic.
