Nice photos :thumb:

40 years later, the standard M 50 f1.7 still holds it's own. 'Twas my first Pentax lens - still got it.

The lens model was one of my first and I still use it on my KX. It is such great value and so easy to get lovely pictures with it I sometimes wonder why I have purchased so many other lenses. Damn LBA!

Cute scarecrow by the way (apologies if I have mis-identified the character).

Thank you for the kind feedback.

Been away on the Fuji side for a while.

Its my first legacy film era Pentax lens - not a bad start for £ 40 .00 :thumb:

Expecting to add a second ; K 135 mm f 2.5 next week from Japan... not so cheap to buy.

BTW Looking for a second body K5 ii s - anyone got one they wish to part with ?

Nice - Pentax have a great tradition of quality 50's, and as has already been said - the fact you can stick a cheap, old, mechanical lens onto current DSLR's says a lot :thumb: :thumb:
