From The Roaches

From The Roaches

Photo Information
Back to more familiar territory for me, in a photographic sense! One from late last year, on a very dull and flat day out with the PU guys, this shot is from the top of The Roaches in Staffordshire.

Stunning detail, David. I bet one of those lenses would work almost as well on a K5... or K10.
Best wishes,

Andrew

Yes it does Andrew, on a K-5 at least! This is shot with my 'other one' with a working aperture, but the optics on the 'crippled' one are just as good!

David, does crippled mean the lens has no M - A ring?

No Mac, the lens aperture pin became detached so I had to take the mount off to get the loose pin out, then put it back together with the aperture fixed at around F8. The optics are fine and it has found a new home with Andrew Curry!

Thanks, David. If it has to have a fixed aperture, F8 is a good one.
