Whoa! Not so many responses to this one, huh? Okay… so I'll oblige!

These two were taken on a Pentax MX loaded with Tri-X 400—pushed to 1600.




These two were taken with the same MX loaded with (the now discontinued) Neopan 400—also pushed to 1600.

Magic little lens

Simply stunning little lens images taken with it have a magic feel to them that none of my others lenses can achieve.

Sorry I don't use such "slow" lenses.

Just kidding... I have my "Special Lady” (SMC Pentax-A 50mm F1.2) who keeps me company on dates out.

I thought the Pentax-A 20mm ƒ/2.8 was your "Special Lady"?

No if you look at my latest signature you'll see the 20mm is my "Good Lady".

Thanks for the like BTW.
