Trying out street photography using an old Pentax PK mount lens mounted on my 60D with an adapter. Thought i would get out and about and try and get some shots. Managed to capture this lady standing out from the crowd.

The best thing about this lens is its fast aperture and relatively small size for its focal length. Also got a loan of a 50mm Pentax PK f1.7.

As well as a PK mount adapter i bought an m42 to eos adapter and got an old Pentacon lens from the old GDR (which isn't very good btw) but it was only 18 from ebay. The Pentax lenses seem to be far superior in quality.

Ignore the exif data as it automatically defaults to 50mm f1.4.
