New To Pentax lovin the old lenses

I'm brand new to the Pentax lenses so I am still learning about Petax cameras and lenes.

I am interested in the old manual focus lenses. I just bought my first two this week, and I have another on the way. Attached pics were taken the day the lens showed up at the door-with Pentax M 135mm f3.5. Was rainy this past weekend in L.A. so had to find something to shoot with my new lens. I also have an older Pentax "k" 135 f3.5 so I am looking forward to a side by side comparison. Attached photos are hand held but did have a staged test shot taken with a tripod, and it was crazy sharp.

I'm using the lenses on a Samsung NX 20 mirror-less system with an adapter. Having a lot of fun so far...

I hope to learn a lot from this forum and its wealth of experience and advice!

Nice photos. LBA(Lens Buying Addiction) has a quick onset especially with a mirrorless. Welcome to the forums
