    Not fine composition but here simply for the image quality.
    E-P2, 1/100t, f? , using a set of extension tubes (M42 Asahi Pentax vintage in a nice leather case from eBay, for £5.50)
    The lens I got for nothing along with eight other assorted ones, from people who were happy to give them away.
    M42/m43 Adaptor from Fotodiox, IL, about £22

    PP in LR3 - denoise, Autotone, slight sharpen, no crop

    That lens should be illegal. I am really, really impressed.

    I was slightly amazed myself. I have some shots of this taken at the same time using the kit 17mm, and they are "crisper" but only very slightly more detailed

    E-P2, Cosina Cosinon 135/2.8, 1/500s, f/?, ISO200

    ... there's fungus in this old lens, but it still seems to manage to produce sharp contrasty images ...
