Hello from Ann Arbor


My name is Chi-Hang Lin.

I bought a Kx in July as my first dSLR and started enjoying photgraphy. I am now in love with the old Pentax-A 50mm F1.7 lens. It is an amazing sensation shooting photos with a 2010 camera and a lens from the 80s. The photos are better than anything I produced with my Canon S80 P&S camera.

I have learned a lot from this forum. Thanks a lot in advance for the help that I will get in the future.

Hello Chi-Hang Lin and welcome to the forum.

The 50/1.7 is indeed a very nice lens and produces remarkable images for an optic that was made so long ago. It's a lot of fun to use these old lenses on a DSLR and the great thing is, it doesn't cost a fortune to do so.
