These are gorgeous, almost erotic photos. Where did you have your 1.2 silvered?

A guy that use to be on this forum (Dcshooter) did my 50/1.2, 30/2.8 and 85/1.8 about 5 years ago... was to be my K walk around kit.

I used the 85/1.8 at 1.8 for the photos. I recently added a canon S focusing screen to my silver K1 and a tampa 1.2x viewfinder thingy so am having fun with it all again.

So Dcshooter did his work even for Australia. He was a great resource.

Yes... was about $50 postage each way plus his $150 or so. Our dollar was better back then.... one lens got lost in the mail for a month... but got delivered eventually. I just wanted something a bit different.

One big plus point with silver lenses is that Pentax gets exposure. You just don't get the same looks in public transport with black lenses!
