    My PST 55 F1.8 recently went through a contract dispute and was temporarily on the trading block. Just not enough playing time. I added an extension tube set and now it's back in the starting rotation.

    Great images! A friend who knows I like old cameras dropped off a bunch of 40 year old Pentax Spotmatics and lenses--SMC Super Tak 50 1.4, 55 1.8, 135 2.5, 17 fisheye and 28 3.5. I never dreamed I would be able to use these lenses, but now I'm excited about getting the adapter and trying all of them out.
