I'm a hobbyist who will readily admit she does not know much about cameras. I saw this rig the other day (Fuji X100 with a Spiratone 0.15x Fish-Eye Camera Lens attached) and wanted to know how in the world an adapter was found to connect the two (I have come across this exact Spiratone lens and now own it). I've searched high and low for information about the use of adapter rings and such with this camera and have come up dry. If anyone has the knowledge of what I could do/buy and can explain in laymen's terminology, I would be indebted to you!!
I don't believe there is a thread for the Pentax/Asahi Optics Takumar line of lenses. I have created a page on my website to summarize my experience with the 55mm f1.8 Super-Takumar (~ 1970) while mounted on my XT2. http://adamwoodhousephotography.ca/vintage-gear/pentax-asahi-55mm-f1-8/ I have read online that many of the old Takumar focal lengths are great performers, well built and quite affordable. Thought this forum could use a thread for people to share the Takumar line.
This is my little rescue dog Susie. Taken in virtual darkness. I know this is a very dark picture but that is exactly what I was trying to capture. She is a black dog and I wanted her silhouette and just the one eye glinting slightly in the twilight of New Year's Eve. X-T10, 1/60s, ISO 1600, Canon FD 50mm f1.4 adapted lens at f1.4. Handheld. JPG. Cropped to square and edited slightly in Snapseed on iPad. On Flickr https://flic.kr/p/CBfydU
