I found a mint Pentax 50mm Micro in a pile of junk at a deceased friend's house. Her niece said Help yourself, so I did, and have been shooting it ever since. Now I have a G1 and bought an adapter; this is the first shot with that lens.

More to come.

Got one today for $8.
Dang! Eight loonies is an incredible price for this lens. How many lenses does that make for you? Your garage must be about half full by now. :wink: It definitely seems like you're the king of the legacy glass around here.

I don't bother counting them anymore. I keep selling them off but for every one I sell I find two more. Today I found three. I think I should switch to Leica then I could only afford one lens.:smile:

That's what I'm loving about getting into these adapted lenses: they cost next to nothing and as long as you buy them right there's really very little risk since they hold their value.

Seeing your finds makes me wish I had more time to haunt the thrift stores.

I like the appearance of that lens, with stadium seating surrounding a marble sized front element.

I just found a nice picture over at flicker: S-M-C Super Macro Takumar 1:4 50mm m42 Pentax | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

Great looking lens.
Here is a photo of it on my EPL1.

Got a native m42 to m43 adaptor without the silly m42 to k to m43 adaptor - much sturdier. I'm really impressed by the heft and sharpness of this lens. Even as the sun was going down, the lens did well at F4 with a flash.

Not many flowers left as we're into the tail end of autumn down south
