Weekly Photo Project, Week 51

I love using vintage lenses. They add character to the image. Modern lenses are great, but they are also precision engineered, which means that they lack flaws. It’s flaws that give these old lenses personality. Each picture this week was captured with an old, manual lens attached to the front of my Fujifilm X-T30.

    Fabulous! I’ve not long had my Helios and am in love already. What mount does the Pentax need?

    Very nice photos, I’ve always hesitated in going in vintage lenses, but I do agree with you. Flaws are what give tools character.
