Ok, perhaps I should retain the rights to the lens as someone has to own it, but it's on permanent loan to the Pentax user.. ;-)

I agree, Jsherman you've really made the lens shine, thanks for your efforts!
Love the Bokeh shots, and the lighting/exposure of the horse image.

I just rcvd the box yesterday - I haven't even opened it yet.
I plan to take some shots to share what's around me locally.
I also just received my chinese split prism screen - I'll probably take some shots w/o the screen 1st and try with the screen.

cheers, hope to post some shots soon.

When you open the box, take care to look at the 'bottom', opposite side of the
label, below the bubble wrap - I put a little traveling companion in the box with the fifty!

I uploaded 4 shots to the flickr photostream, and labeled them with locations and descriptions.

Just put a cut-down screen from a 35mm Pentax in my K20D (can't recall offhand which model, but it has a diagonal split prism with microprism collar), and I wish I'd had it when I shot with the Nifty 50.

Not to worry. My older M42s and K-mounts will clearly benefit from it, from now on.

1st shots out of the box. All jpg, no PP. K200d, Av mode - edit: resized to 850x5xx pixels to allow direct attachment
Past couple of days here in SoCal have been indicative of june gloom

1st one taken wide open, F1.7 - Cooky eyeing a lizard

I wanted to see how it looks wide open and stopped down.
2nd shot, Bridge Garden @ South Coast Plaza, Costa Mesa CA, F7.1
3rd shot, same as 2nd but wide open F1.7
4th shot, roof, f8.0

Plan to take more shots, this time more natural landscapes.

I've never posted to Flickr before so I might need some help so that I can post full res shots there.

jsherman- got the gift, will sure to pass it on, I'm quite sure they'll recognize it!

Took the liberty of adding myself to the list and put Igilligan as next in line as PentHassyKon has chosen.
I´m leaving sweden for malaysia-->singapore-->indonesia in early oct. Dont know where im going after that, maybe cambodia but ill eventually end up in NZ.
Would be really cool if i had the lens then so i could deliver it face-to-face to someone.
What a great project!

Thanks Viliam. 2 things tho... don't count on having the lens by Oct. It took 4 months to get through Australia and there's currently twice as many togs in America waiting for the lens. Make sure I've added you to my list when I post it next. Thanks

Uploaded another one to flickr showing the Mediterranean landscape not far from me. Somewhat in honor of our Aussie mates - it includes Eucalyptus trees. If you're wondering where your Avocado's come from, you can just see an Avocado orchard in this shot.

This area was almost run over by a brush fire. Not long now it'll probably get run over by suburbia.

Shot taken @ f8, for those who want to map this - area is roughly by Orchard Hills and Portola Pkwy, behind Northwood High School


looks like I need some help on posting a flickr shot on here... - EDIT: never mind, found the tutorial-
