Quick Photo trip today: K2 and MX


With a hectic life I barely have time for anything. A few days ago I called forum member Edgar (e_nogueras) and asked him "Hey! Wanna meet Wednesday at sunset at the lighthouse? I only have about an hour because I need to go back for another conference call".
He suggested another beach spot nearby and we met today as scheduled. Beautiful place!
I took my K2 and he showed up with his MX. What a lovely pair!
I took my K-01 mainly to take this shot.

Yes, they were both very, Very, VERY, VERY carefully placed on top of that rock.

Edgar brought his K1 as well for some long exposures but that will be another story.

Here is a glimpse of the place.

I really love the MX - was my first camera that was sadly stolen when I was a kid..... I have an LX and an ME Super (trying to get it work.)

The 28mm 3.5 K lens is very sharp and has little distortion. I got great pictures with mine.

Nice legacy on the rocks there...

But.., 28 mm should be mounted on your K2 and the 50 on your MX....

The K2 looks lovely, but the K28/f3.5 on an MX is straight dream combo.

Lovely pair (and a nice looking location too).

My first MX was stolen too, on the Paris Metro. I've hated the Metro ever since!
