I've found that its shaprness and color are really amazing!

    What aperture did you use on Mimiw? Was that a 2, 2.2?
    michael, thanks. i believe randall coined the term MFLM (manual focus lens madness). mimiw's shot at f2.8. if you intend to use the tak 55/1.8 most of the time, i suggest leaving the adapter on it whether on or off cam. it's a time saver for when you want to use it. also, get an extra k-mount rear cap, the kind that you just slide on so you can still cover the lens' rear end.

    Re: Photos From Old Manual Lenses

    Yeah, I was actually gonna edit my post once I got around to finding the post that coined it... but you beat me to it. Thanks, Randall.

    I actually DO need a lot of lens and mount caps, as most of the ones I buy from Hidalgo (or other places) don't have any. Hence... plastic caps from whatever's lying around, washed, disinfected, mounted, and either taped or "rubber-banded" into place.

    The problem I'm having with the adapter is that when I try to leave it on the lens, I have a hard time removing the lens (and adapter) from the camera. No matter how hard I push down on the lens release button, the lens screws off first, leaving the adapter behind. I've tried tightening the lens as far as it'll reasonably (and safely) go, but I still can't get around that problem. (Not to mention, I don't want to tighten past putting the scale beyond the middle portion of the body, just below the flash.

    mike, you'll really have to 'unscrew' the lens after using it. what i mean is that after a day's shooting, before packing up the gear, re-attach the screw mount adapter to the lens and cover it so that when you need it for later, you'll just mount the lens on cam. works if you intend to use the screwmount lens most times or when you have a 2nd body dedicated for screws.

    Oh, okay. Got it. I'm guessing Avenue is still the place to go for caps?

    24K has lens caps too if that's what you mean? They have the nicer center pinch caps.

    Thanks! Yeah, I'm looking for both lens and mount caps. I'm finding I switch my mount caps around too often since I'm always short at least one. As for lens caps, My SMCP-M 50/1.4 is missing one. I'll probably be going to Hidalgo eiter tomorrow or on Wednesday. Outing! Sinong gusto sumama? (who wants to come?)
