    Old Lens, New Body

    Impressed by the images in Ben's 6x12 in Jerusalem thread using an old Takumar 50mm, I thought a thread using old lenses might be interesting. I dug up a shot using an 8-element 50mm f/1.4 Super Takumar (radioactive!) to start.

    It's a georgous rendering lens isn't it! Especially for the price.

    Hmmm, this thread is really taking off. One more attempt.

    1980s vintage Pentax 67 90mm @f/2.8. The 67 105mm is highly regarded, but I prefer this lens. It's smaller size, closer focus and bokeh tip the scales for me.
