Back when Pentax was my thing. I've still got an MX and M50/f1.4, but the rest is gone
What lens is that to the left of the 40mm f2,8?

Just checked, and it looks like my FD 50/1.8 has a BT-55 paired with it. I rarely use the lens as I'm not much of a fan of it, but the few photos I've taken with it and posted suggest that there's probably nothing to worry too much about.
Excellent and thanks for the images link. Cheers, J

Well... I was looking and according to the FTB viewfinder specs, you are not seeing 6% of the whole image... so in that 6% might be the vignetting... am I too drunk?
Nope. Not too drunk. I later stumbled upon Ken Rockwell's review and read that there was 94% ... so, yeah maybe so for that unseen 6%. I am going to give it a go both ways and compare for fun. Salut, J

I see no real difference through the OVF ... maybe a few shots of this hood "on" and a few "off" for funnies ... wadda ya think ?!
I think that vignette is often not real obvious in the viewfinder, perhaps as a side-effect of the Fresnel screen. You could try the DOF preview. Hood-induced vignette becomes more apparent as the lens is stopped down.

That's actually a 45mm pancake (Chinon)!

The one to the left is a K24/f2.8, one of my favourite lenses and one I wish I'd never sold...

Here it is on the LX with Provia100

Salut Steve,
,
Thanks a lot for your input.

I tried the lens hood combo at about all the f-stops outdoors in which I would have on the hood in place and then remove it and replace it again. I really could not see any significant difference it the OVF.

So, I guess that i will double shoot a few test frames with the hood on then off to see for any difference. As the French say, "On verra" ...

A new-to-me accessory for the MX ... works great and this is the MX that I sent to Eric two years ago.

(Winder purchased from London Camera Exchange quite reasonably - a "goodie" for me since I have sold off a bunch of Nikon & Canon gear)

First time for the MX with a winder, and as expected, everything was AOK. Thanks again, Eric.

PS - The eye cup is off a K-50. Works well for me ...

That is one of the cool things is that the eyepiece accessories from the M-series forward are all compatible (K-series too?). The modern eyecup works real nicely on my Super-Program.

I don't really think so. This entire site is comprised almost exclusively of digital photographic photos and subjects, save for this little film corner. I don't think it's unreasonable to keep the "digital gear p0rn" to the countless other thread topics.

Thanks. Well, it's true that this is a thread in the forum section for film, but there should still be some leeway,
The occasional bit of digital gear porn makes its way onto this thread, but for the most part that stuff is not that interesting. As with similar threads on Flickr and elsewhere, this place is dominated by film gear with a bias to that which is intrinsically more interesting or titillating.

Yep it's just not old enough to be interesting!

You are getting warm, though I don't see anything Russian in this photo.
