I’ve just returned from a camping trip down to Devon, a coastal resort in the south of England. Catching up for the weekend with friends i don’t see often enough was great fun even though there was zero waves, not that i can actually surf.

I decided to take down my camera with a 30 year old Pentax 50mm lens attached to see how it worked out with the 5D. I made some alterations to the lens (read; snapped bits off) to make it work and although it may be slightly quirky (aperture is now stuck on f2), i’m happy with the results.

A cheap ebay adaptor and my lens i’ve owned for 18 years becomes good as new
