Pentax Q / adapter K to Q / DA 35mm f2.4 AL

Focuse peaking and my brand new fotodiox adpater from K to Q mount with aperture ring came fortunately in the same at day. Today I can made a test comparing the Q 01 Prime and the DA 35mm f2.4 AL with the adapter.
This was the results using the same setting and apertures and no PP. I just crop to 100% on the 01 Prime to compare the same frame.
Q + K adapter + DA 35mm f2.4 AL (195mm on 35mm) using focuse peaking. The first is with the 2.4/35 the second with the Prime 01 and the third is the second cropped to 100%.

The results look very promising for getting better results using K-mount lenses than cropping with the Q lens.

Here you have a sample. A little strange but light and handly with the good plastic DAL
