Default Pentax 50MM F1.4 with 3/4 adaptor

If you have some good old fast lens from your SLR camera day, you can still use them with a cheap lens adapter. But there is a catch, you can not use auto focus and live view options.
Here are a few samples from Panasonic L1.

I have a 55mm 1.4 Super Takumar, and an 85mm 1.8 SMC Takumar which I use for things like basketball and low-light situations.

You can stop them down with a Pentax DSLR, and then use the Auto/Manual switch on the Takumar like an old-fashioned preset lens.

If anyone remembers using those...
