Pentax Asahi Takumar SMC 45-125mm Zoom M42

I noticed that I didn't see much by way of adapting a Pentax lens to a Canon Camera. I have a Canon EOS 40D and EOS 5D DSLR Cameras and wanted to see how the Takumar lens performed on them. Great results using a M42 to EOS Adapter with auto focus confirmation! I live in the UK and decided to purchase a rare find when I saw it advertised. The hard to find Pentax Asahi Takumar SMC 45-125mm F/4 M42 Lens. I am waiting until I can justify purchasing a Canon 24-104mm F/4 L Lens or Canon 24-70mm 2.8 L Lens. I use this mainly for portrait or any photography that does not require fast action. Here are just some quick samples that I took of my daughter. Indoor shot at 1000 ISO. Outside 100 IS0 at F/4
