Post your K-01 pics with vintage glasses

Some time ago I started a thread on the sub-forum dedicated to the K-1 full frame.
It continues to get new posts, so I guess some people find it interesting.
It is titled "Post your K-1 pics with vintage glasses".
Of all the APS-C DSLR's made by Pentax, the K-01 is probably the best suited for shooting with vintage manual focus lenses.
There is no risk to damage the camera (or the glass) because the rear of the lens protrudes too much inside the camera.
I use vintage lenses almost exclusively with the K-1 and K-01. There is already a thread where forum users can see examples of the "character" of many old lenses on full frame. Now there is such a place for those who shoot with the K-01 mirrorless.

I start with two photos taken last night at a concert in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
The lens is a nice Tomioka-made Yashinon 1.7/50mm. Being a DS-M series it's multicoated, but lacks the A/M switch. I used one of those black rings that allow infinity, but have an internal flange that depresses the auto pin. This way it is possible to shoot with the lens stopped down.
Due to the very low illumination level, I had to shoot most pictures wide open, at 3200 ISO (and in most cases also under-exposing)

Good idea for a thread. Here is my contribution. Taken with the K-01 and the SMC Pentax 85mm F1.8, a K series lens. Still a great portrait lens, well over 40 years old. The model is my daughter.

Thanks!
Beautiful daughter. Nice portrait.
Great lens (I'd love to own one )

Nailing the perfect focus is not so simple with the lens wide open. I could have done better The focus in the first picture is on the food at the forefront, not on the girls.
Overall rendering and bokeh are very good, and the multicoating comes useful shooting at night with strong light sources.
I still have to find a Tomioka fifty that disappoints. I'd love to try the Pancolar f/1.4 MC, but I tested a good number of 50/55mm lenses in M42 mount: the Tomiokas are definitely in the same league of the Takumars, at the very top.
There are a couple of bokeh queens that render OOF areas even better, but if sharpness is also taken into account, the two families of lenses really shine.
