Antique market near St Jacon Ontario

The weather was overly good and with harsh light outdoor. So I did some indoor shot

Nice Daniel - I need to get one of the fast 50's. The F5.6 of the kit lens just doesn't cut it in low light. I have been looking at maybe a Pentax-A 50mm F1.7 as I like to manual focus and the FA lenses just don't have the feel of the older manual focus lenses. I guess I spent to many years with the Spotmatic. Unfortunately, I sold the spotmatic with an F2. The F1.7's still seem to be pretty available at a reasonable price and I like the way the Pentax-A's can handle the exposure part. So LBA, here we go - Bruce

Great shots Daniel, I have received my Takumar 50mm f1.4 but have not really been out with it yet.

The lens is not in perfect condition, the diaphram sticks a little and some internal lens surfaces appear to have oil deposited on them. Lens are a bit yellowed too.

Assuming I can get it clean do you have any tips on its use with the *ist DS? Other than the obvious concerning manual manipulation of focus and aperture.

John ,

Thanks for your positive feedback. The lens is foolproof. Not me though.
Hope your Tak 50mm1.4 is ok after a couple of workout long overdue. Just shoot in M and press ae lock after focusing for metering. That is all.

Daniel
bper & Kjell : thanks for looking.
