Trying out my "new" M42 to K mount adapter with the 35/3.5 SMC Takumar.

Wide open results are just stunningly sharp with this classic lens. Positively no CA. Wish I could say that for the 40mm XS lens.
I've got an adapter on the way from Samy's. Need to figure out which M42 lenses to invest in now. Most people seem to like the Takumars and the Carl Zeis lenses. Some of the funky Russian ones seem interesting too.

This dragon on a plaque grabbed my attention so I took a snap.

I've noticed that uploaded image files often seem to be reduced in quality (compressed) by a percentage, perhaps as much as 30%+. Perhaps your image started at a high compression?

Broken Dolls and Broken Dreams

This are my best first day pictures, i have the K-01 for about 5 days, i am spoiled by my Olympus OMD E-M5 with the holy trinity of lenses (M.zuiko 12mm f2; Panaleica 25mm f1.4 and M.Zuiko 45mm f1.8) so i found the K-01 quite slow, miss focus a lot, the performance of the bundled 40mm DA XS 2.8 quite soft. But overall, i found the colors quite good, and the extra DOF control welcome.

Both images captured at f2.8 and worked on Lightroom and Silver Efex pro2.
