    Re: Photos From Old Manual Lenses



    Hi everyone! I just want to know... what is the usual price range of (manual) lens cleaning in Hidalgo? I am thinking of bringing my dad's old Sicor 80-200 macro lens for cleaning. It was part of the package when he bought his Pentax MG way back in 80's.

    Should be around P700-P1k depending on suki status. I think Mike Santos of Picture City would price it at that range. That lens looks good (at least from your photo). Post some more of your 35mm shots here in this thread!

    Re: Photos From Old Manual Lenses

    Just been to Hidalgo yesterday, unfortunately they said that my lens cannot be totally cleaned anymore as there is already something like smoke inside. I guess I just really have to save more money for now to get a zoom lens.

    Re: Photos From Old Manual Lenses

    My 135mm's


    TAKEN WITH THE DS + SMCP A 35-70/4

    On the left is the SMC Pentax (K) 135/2.5 (ca. 1975) and on the right is the SMC Pentax A 135/2.8 (ca. 1985). Both are rare and hard to find lenses (esp. the A), you might say I sold my soul to get these.

    I got the 135/2.5 around 1986 when I traded in an SMCP M 135/3.5 for it; the 135/2.8 came around last year when I begged a friend to sell it to me. The K2.5 was more than adequate for me except the lack of the A function slowed me down during events shoot so the need to have the A2.8 version.

    SMCP (K) 135/2.5



    I've had this lens a little after EDSA 1986 and it has earned it worth in gold over and over again through the years. It currently is suffering from oily aperture blades, Mike Santos fixed it but it recurred again, so it should go for servicing soon. I can still use it at the widest aperture (because of the oil, the aperture does not close in time, leaving me with overexposed shots). But the nicest thing about this is that it shoots at its best at the widest opening; other lenses which may have big openings still shoot stopped down say at f5.6. This lens is sharp all the way to its widest opening.

    For example:





    Both shot at f2.5.

    SMCP A 135/2.8



    I needed this for speed. Having shifted to digital, I was slowed down by the K's lack of the A function. I got this late 2006 from a friend who sold it to me (in a case of buying the whole field to acquire the treasure in it - Matthew 13:44 - I actually bought the whole kit which it was part of).

    Unlike the K version, this one begins to lose its sharpness when you get close to the widest opening. Happiest at f5.6 or f4 it still manages a sharp photo at f2.8 with a little bit of sharpening using the unsharp mask.

    Re: Photos From Old Manual Lenses

    Here's my SMCP (K) 135 2.5 and my old Takumar 105 2.8

    I don't use the Takumar because of the screw mount.
    The K 135 2.4, however, is a beauty.

    Here's a shot I took last month at it's minimum distance.
