At the moment I don't have anything longer than the Pentax-M 120mm f/2.8
You'll just have to walk a bit closer then.

Thanks! I really do love these Pentax lenses. The Fujinon lenses are stellar (I've got XF 23mm f/1.4, 35mm f/2 and 56mm f/1.2), but I find they are very clinical at some times. Like most modern lenses, they are just "too perfect". There's just something special in the images taken with these lovely old vintage lenses, not to mention their glass & steel construction. And I really enjoy using manual lenses (now about to try manual Pentax zooms as well) as they make you think more about the image and where to place the focal plane.

I think whatever my camera body will be in the future years, these Pentax lenses will stay with me and they will influence in my decisions when buying new cameras (it has to support manual focusing).

Wouldn't like to re-enact the scene from The Revenant with a real bear. So I like to keep my distance, even in a Zoo. I already have an Oscar (my son's name is Oskari).
