    Thank-you for your review of the Vivitar DR-5000 ring flash. You mentioned that it gives good exposure on Automatic at f/8 /w ISO 200. How have you found the flash exposure in the f/18 range ? Any desire for a ring flash with more manual power options ? e.g., Sunpak DX8R or other manual ring flash

    The IQ is ok on the 50mm, I think! Check the edges of the applepics in this post:

    They are uncropped, just downsized to 1024x. And it's so cheap.

    Hi! When I took out both C-mounts I saw that they are the same dimensions! The Fujian 1.4/50mm has the Q-adapter mounted.
    The SMC-Pentax is mounted to an Micro 4/3 adapter. The Q-K adapter is about twice the optical length of the M4/3-K adapter.

    Picture 1 - Fujian 1.7/35mm & 1.4/50mm

    Hi Gibby! The 50mm is much smaller than for instance the SMC Pentax 50mm + the K-adapter. It's a little bigger than the 35mm but not much. Not more difficult to carry round in your pocket. IQ I think is more or less comparable between the two [35/50mm]. Only reason I've used the 35 & 25 mm more is that I've had a short tele period. I'll post a picture of the both together so you can compare the respective sizes after the weekend. Thanks/Erik

    About Me
    Into photography since I was a kid. First decent camera in the 1980s was an ancient Kodak Signet 35 rangefinder from the 1940s. Later moved up to Pentax K1000, and owned tons of cameras & lenses over the years. (Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Minolta, Praktica, Olympus, Rollei, you-name-it. Unfortunately no Leicas or Hasselblads, tho.) Sold my Nikon F2 35mm rigs & made the jump to digital with a Pentax K100D in 2006.

    I live in Iowa with my wife (also a Pentaxian) & my dog.
    Interests
    Music, photography, outdoor stuff
    Occupation
    Radio DJ, musician
