    some first shots with my new legacy lens

    55mm 1.8 with fotodiox adaptor

    still getting the hang of manually adjusting the dials for aperture and manual focusing but i am liking working with it so far!

    Nice. Lots of Pentax glass out there. I have the K 28 3.5 on the E-Pl1, and it's a surprisingly nice lens. The VF-2 helps a lot.

    yeah definitely i would think my next purchase would be the evf2 because focusing with the small lcd screen is a pain...

    lol the strawberry hamburger was a good idea actually, it was actually a cake in a pastry shop...

    here are some more from a stroll today. getting used to the focal length from my kit lens (and having to move into position for shots). this seems to be the fun of prime lens eh?
