Manual focus lens front focusing results on only one of your bodies?

I've had similar problems with some of my old manual focus lenses, and came to the same conclusion as Othar. When I used the diopter adjustment lever on the viewfinder I was able to mostly correct this, and more tellingly, then had a similar problem a couple of days later when my eyesight returned to normal and I hadn't yet thought to return the diopter adjustment lever to it's original position. I had been doing long hours in front of a monitor and was pretty tired and run down. The lenses I was using were all considerably slower.

An apricot Hibiscus I posted a month or two back on pic of the week, Pentax K5 & Porst (Enna) Weitwinkel 35mm f3.5, and then again with an 11mm ext tube on the second;

I was surprised, when purchasing an SMC A 35-70 f4 for the convenience, that I could get bokeh out of what would seem an unlikely zoom for it;

That's an interesting effect aaacb! - thanks again for hosting Eva. My photos this week were mostly taken with my K5 and a Porst (Enna Munchen) Weitwinkel 35mm f3.5, except the last where I used the Super Tak 35mm f3.5:

Thanks for hosting again Eva - the undertakers look fun, and the greek myth as essential and integral to street life, as it should be!. More flowers & a miscellany of old lenses from me this week. The first two taken with my K5 & Super Takumar 135mm f3.5 at f3.5 & f8 respectively, the third a PZO Matar 5 cm f4.5 enlarger lens, the fourth a Vega 12B 90mm f2.8, and the last a PZO Amar 10.5 cm enlarger lens;

Thanks for hosting again Eve. Most of mine this week come from a quick walk around the garden Saturday morning between showers. The first three were taken with my K5 and a new to me Vega 12B f2.8 lens, the fourth a Matar 5cm f4.5 enlarger lens, and the pigeon a DA SMC 55-300 f4-5.6. The Vega shots were taken with the aperture wide open. The lens itself was made for the Pentacon 6 mount, and has a disconcerting habit of falling out of the front of the cheap adapter I bought for it. After a few short falls onto the kitchen bench I just held it well while carrying and taking the photos - I won't be waltzing down the street with it anytime soon. It does seem to make nice pictures wide open though - I'd like to try it closed down a little in an open park also :).

Love your fox Allen!

Walking back from Roma St Station to the parklands beyond. I'd been told the Roma St Parklands had good floral displays all year round, but when I was there in April last year I was more impressed with the architectural and sculpted aspects of the gardens. And the lizards :) - I posted them in Pic of the Week sometime shortly after. Pentax K5 & Cosina Cosinon 20mm f3.8 (1st & 3rd) and SMC Pentax A 35-70mm f4;

Thank you for hosting again Eva - that is a nice old Citroen, and I do like the bird flying past the tv aerials. I've just got small pics from carrying the little Ricoh GX100 around;
