Pentax-M 40mm f/2.8 Pancake

I've redone my Flickr archives and lost the previous links that the next three posts reference. Sorry!

Good detail, especially for wide open. I'm looking into one of these to stick on an MX, and these pics kinda seal it for me.

Here's a couple, taken with the K10D. Sorry, not sure of the aperture, but probably around f/5.6 - f/8

This one had a bit of PP to boost the contrast, but the starburst is real



Not too shabby for a 1976 lens on a 2006 camera:

Late To The Party

As is my usual way, here's a couple to keep the thread going on this fine wee bit of Pentax engineering.

Wonderful little lens. Not the sharpest lens in the world, but lovely rendering to compensate. MFD is bit long, but with extension tubes you can shoot closer.

Focus to infinity at f8:
