M42 LENSES To Canon DSLR

helicopterWow!! I was looking around the internet and found, what I thought was a pretty cool discovery!! . But this is probably been going on since the Digital camera took over. There are a great amount of adapters to put old glass on new DSLR. I just picked up a great little Pentax Super Takumar 105mm 2.8. Great glass and has a real nice effect. I also didn’t have to give an arm and a leg for it either. The benefits are, there are all kinds of old glass. Good old glass so there is a lot of experimentation to be done. This is like large format. I like to use different glass to get many effects. So let the fun begin!!. I shot these tests the other day. The light is pretty crappy but hey it’s March in Seattle, so it’s been a wet one. Also the down side. If you really want to call it that. The lenses can only be used with the camera set on Manual or aperture priority, so all you auto shooters maybe this isn’t for you. I like to shoot on manual and focus it to, so this is right up my alley. I hope to put up so more tests as the weather gets better. stay tuned.fern
