Those that are familiar with my photography know I love shooting with Vintage Lenses, specifically Takumar and some older SMC Pentax Lenses.
Pictured is my Vintage Lens Kit that I'll be shooting out of moving forward in to 2019 and beyond. Out of the many lenses in my collection these are my 9 favorite. All these lenses are at least 43 years old, with the oldest being 55 years old. The Camera Body I am using for these lenses is a 2016 Full Frame 36 megapixel Pentax K1 DSLR (First Version).
The lenses included in this kit are:
| Super-Takumar 35mm f/3.5 | Super-Takumar 50mm f/1.4 "8 Element Version" |
| SMC Pentax 50mm f/1.2 | Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 85mm f/1.8 |
| Super-Takumar 105mm f/2.8 | Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 135mm f/2.5 |
| Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 200mm f/4 |
| Super-Multi-Coated MACRO-Takumar 50mm f/4 |
| Super-Multi-Coated MACRO-Takumar 100mm f/4 |
My 3 favorite Vintage Lenses that I shoot with most of the time are highlighted in bold black.
2019 will be an interesting and fun year making "Photography Art"!

Winters coming, (it's getting harder to find good flowers to photograph).
Nature Photography is like the winds of the weather and we must shift our strategy and adapt and flow with the changing of the seasons....

I took this photo of an old rocker and oil can that's on my porch with my 6D Mark ii using a Tamron 45mm f/1.8 Lens.

I like the vintage image better even though the modern 50mm looks a tad bit sharper. It's not always about sharpness
These older lenses just have a character to them modern lenses can not duplicate......They're all great though in their own way.

I shot this photo this evening with an old Super-Takumar 50mm f/1.4 Lens on my Canon 6D Mark ii, I didn't quite expect these results!
