My hand me down Black Q (from the wife) with the 21mm on the Q/K adapter taken with her White Q + 5-15mm.




I'll use this today and the 35mm (plastic mount) to see just what it's capable of.

Best regards

How are you funding the genuine Pentax adapter, do the numbers on it relate to f-stops?

I have to assume funding is finding. It's a fine piece of kit. See below for the explanation of the aperture ring.




If you open too far on a bright lens the shutter exceeds its limit and the speed displays in red so at the moment with the 70mm today it was happy at 2.5

Funding/finding, clearly a Freudian slip!

Given the price I think the u is appropriate.

At GBP150 it's not exactly cheap but it does the job and let's not forget it is chipped and not passive.

I order from the USA. As long as your total goods plus shipping charge is below AUS$1000 there is no import duty or tax.

The 06 15-45mm arrived today so the wife is happy. Her white Q with the 02 and 06 zooms and hoods taken with my black Q with the 8.5mm 01 lens.




Weekend tomorrow so out and about with the new lens to see how it performs.

Best regards
