Thank you guys.
Old habits die hard, so I keep on writing 5D instead..

Gunzorro, Jay, bkw - great shots.
I saw the Tamron 300/2.8 in a shop here few days ago but the price tag was a bit too steep for my wallet..
Gunzorro: which adaptor do you use for P67 glass?

I use the adapter from "big_is" brand/seller out of China on eBay. $44.50 with free shipping, but I'd recommend paying the $2 for slightly expedited shipping -- took over a month. But unlike a previous different make, this one gets to infinity or slightly beyond. Previous one only got to infinity on one lens -- my 120mm soft focus, which I've since sold.

He blacklisted me now..
Most of the adaptors he sent never arrived except for 2 only. It was too late to get refund as per PayPal policy.
Any order from China/HK arrived spot on except for him, even quicker than US Amazon orders - I have a feeling he does it on purpose to get just few more coins...

Thanks jay and Krosavcheg. My hit rate shooting hummers with this lens isn't great but I got some lucky shots. Krosavage I picked up mine for $649 at KEH. Don't really see these to often. Green Model 60B

GXR images thread is gone so I think this is the place to post them.
This is a bit older, I like the light, but I never posted it because i left ISO on 1600, so lots of noise.

If you are talking about big_is, I don't think that's it.

I had trouble on this, the latest purchase. It actually took around two months for me to receive, and two tries. I tracked both shipments. The first shipment, arrived in the US at a normal pace, about a week, but was held in what I assume was customs in San Fransisco, CA, and sent back to China! WTF? Right? I notified that it looked like it was heading back to him, and another shipment was arranged. This one arrived in about a week to Bethel, NY, but languished there for over two weeks. I took almost a week to get to me in Southern Cal from NY, but I got it finally!

Previously, I've ordered from big_is and received 3 or 4 different adapters without problem or major delay.

Anyhow, here's what it looks like with the Pentax 75mm f/2.8 ASPH lens, the main one I was interested in using (before I started testing all my others!). Using the 105/2.4 lens hood since this is not a wide angle lens on FF digital! Great snap-on lens hood.

Japan never ever has problems with mail. Unbelievable, but it's a fact. To the extent of one being able to chose 2 hour intervals for delivery at one's convenience.
Big_Is stuff just never arrived - period. I thought maybe Japan-China relationship plays its part, but even to Sweden it took nearly 4 months to deliver in past....unreal....

Lens does look exceptionally good!

Tominon 75/4.5 on 5D2







All F8


















This is a crop (not 100%) of the image above to show what the Bokeh does. It's quite funky in front of focus and quite smooth behind. It's the same image as above, just B+W.

Hi Kent. I think I have a fetish for 75-90mm (or so) lenses, mostly enlarging or barrel lenses, so am happy to try stuff. As they say, it's good to have a hobby!

I've ordered from big_is before, he is legit, but he's occasionally screwed up my order.

Another one from the F.Zuiko 50/1.8

Was a a small local zoo today and managed to capture a territorial dispute between and owl and a tortoise. The owl put on quite a show but the tortoise eventually prevailed... Canon 6D with a Panagor 90 2.8 macro wide open.

Rodenstock APO-Rodagon-N 80/4 on Canon 5D2 (with Nikon PB-4).

F5.6






F4






F8. These flowers (Tulbaghia fragrans) are quite small, approx 1cm, so the lens does reasonably well even at this magnification but this might be near its limit.
