    These were taken on a Pentax K-10D DSLR using a glassless Minolta MD to K mount adapter. Without an optical element the lenses have no focus at infinity and can only be used as close-up or macro lenses. All were shot in manual metering mode. Aperture not recorded.

    Minolta MC-Rokkor PF 58mm f/1.4 (produced between 1966-1969)



    Minolta MD Macro 50mm f/3.5 with 1:1 adapter (in production beginning 1981 until whenever Minolta stopped producing manual focus lenses)


    Here is the 58mm mounted on a Pentax K-1000 (film) body:



    Drosera admirabilis flower. This was taken on my Pentax DSLR with a SMC Pentax-A f/1.4 50mm lens. Produced between 1983-1987. Shot in an improvised whitebox with lighting from outdoors through a window. Image was cropped as the minimum focus on the lens is 0.45m.

    I like the macro and the pentax A shot, both classic

    Yashica ML 50mm f/1.4
    Getting sort of expensive on ebay, typically over 100

    No post processing other than crop and resize
    Different rose species than the f/1.7 pics

    NaN, I wish I could. Right now, I can't even afford to pay attention. A DSLR has been way out of budget, even used, for along time. I must use what I have. It was just an idle question, anyways.

    Yes, I wanted to know of any of these lenses seemingly everyone is buying would fit, or can be adapted.

    I forgot I had this lens: Yashica 50mm f2. I think I got this one at a pawn shop for around $10.00.







    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    How about some vintage photos as well? I took these in the early 70s. Developed the film, and did the prints myself. Taken with my brother's Minolta SRT-101 with 58mm MC Rokkor-PF f/1.4 lens. I still have the negatives but I scanned the prints - too much work to set up the film scanner. Judging from the contrast and grain I must have been shooting Kodak Tri-X (ASA/ISO 400) black & white film. Shooting around noon didn't help the contrast any. Subjects are 1/25th model kits by Tamiya built by myself. Ah, the follies of youth!

    Awesome images Warren, love the tiger... at first glance it looks full scale
    If you were like me, you eventually blew your models up.... I did a lot of experimenting with whatever stuff I could find that went boom LOL
    Loved calcium carbide, and would cut off match heads and pack them tightly into stuff for preteen pyrotechnics LOL

    I got out my 1971 vintage S-M-C Takumar 50mm f/1.4 for a quickie


    It's amazing the "personality" each lens can have...
