    A couple last week that I shot with the SMC Pentax-M 50mm f/1.4 and a no-name brand Pentax-K Tilt adapter on my Olympus E-P3.

    In regards to the last two, there's usually a significant contrast difference when going from f/1.4 to f/2 (1.4 gives a little bit of that halo/glow effect while also being softer on contrast).

    Wow, that's a cool effect. Nice.

    The tilt can be even more pronounced when used with my Tamron SP 90/2.8 (1:1) Adaptall Macro (Adaptall -> Pentax-K -> PK/M43 Tilt Adapter). Though it won't quite give as close to the dramatics as the f/1.4, but I can get a stronger tilt effect with it.
