Ah, an in-person hand-off then to Alex.

I've been thinking - I could add a lens to the travelling package, as I have one of the following to spare for a year or so , what would people most likely want to try?
- Super Tak 28/3.5 (I should really sell this one)
I'd of course verify the chosen lens works with the Sv.

I lean ambivalently toward the 35, but I'll happily defer to consensus, there. Not a big deal either way. For me, part of the fun is *not* picking the lens.

Here's a couple with the Auto Tamron-F 35mm f/2.8, Fuji 160S, and the sightseeing SV. Orange, NJ, St. John's cemetery...

I know where that is.

Nice work. I just loaded some 160S in a camera. I had a funny feeling I would like it. I figured it would do very saturated blues. It may become my new favorite next to Reala.

woof!

Thanks - yes 160S is good film, plus for some reason that speed is easy for me to figure exposure for... I bought a big stash of it, slightly expired (Sept 2009)

Two more with Fuji 160S - the first is through the Tamron-F 35mm, the second with the Super Takumar 28/3.5.... there's no doubt the Tak is the better lens by a good margin

Nesster, looks like you're really making the Sightseer sing <g>. Colors and textures are great and you can't miss with a cemetery in my book. I was so inspired by your shots that I bought a roll of the Fuji 160s yesterday, although it looks like I'm going to have to wait a while to shoot it with the weather that's coming in. Today would have been ideal, but I was doing the j-o-b thing today and didn't have any time for photography .

Best,
Kevin

Wow, is that sharp! (runs upstairs to get the K28/3.5 out of his bag).

Yes, this sample of the Super is actually slightly sharper than my S-M-C. But, the S-M-C works better with the ES-II

I will be including the Super Tak 28, with UV filter and generic caps in the sightseer box.

Nesster, which version of the Super Tak do you have? What's the part number on the A-M switch? Just by looking at the pics of it I'm guessing 43871 since it doesn't tak 58mm filters and goes from f3.5-16. That would mean only the coatings would be different from it an the S-M-C depending on when it was made.

43871 it is - and as I say, this sample is slightly sharper than the s-m-c sample. A lovely underrated lens, as seems like all Pentax 28mm's (and the 645 equivalent) are.

I prefer the Tamron shots.
I guess I am as biased towards the 35mm focal length as you guys are to Pentax 28mm lenses!

So here's a question - if I use a more modern Tamron Adaptall-2 lens with the ES mount will it damage the SV mirror as the SMC 50/1.4 would (or should I just stick with the lenses that come in the box)?
