    Direct from camera using old school (1957) lenses from Canon.

    Here's the setup:

    and it's a perfect travelling setup:


    Shot taken with the 50mm f2.2 Canon Cine lens attached via a D-Mount adapter on both the lens and the camera (Canon lenses are bayonet mount by default).

    What do you like about the legacy Canon glass that you don't get with native lenses? What prompted you to try these lenses out?

    Quite simply, because you can. I like using different lenses and the chance to use old 8mm movie camera lenses on a new digital sensor body, in this case Pentax, sealed the deal. I use the kit lens too but it's just not as interesting as the older lenses.

    Given the size of the Q, those are some skinny lenses.

    And fast too...my 13mm is f1.4. The 50mm is f2.2 but it has some of the nicest rendering I have seen. The second fave is the 38mm f1.8. Nice compression and the look of the digital images is great in my opinion.

    These lenses look great on the Q. I've just bought my first C-Mount a Fujian but am looking at more :)

    Thanks super8man!

    Just picked up a Q10. I bought it mainly for a class I teach, photography for kids grades 4-8. But I have enjoyed adapted lenses on my m4/3 so i figure it might be fun on the Q as well. I will have to keep an eye out for any of these lenses.
