Passing Taxis

Shot 20th April 2012

Just a snap to test out the Pentax Super Takumar on my Nikon D700, which I am using via an adaptor. The adaptor has a piece of glass in it to enable infinity focus. The glass-less adaptors just make the M42 screw lenses work as macro on the Nikon.

Shot under a railway bridge which I visit now and again for the good light. It's down in Yurakucho, Tokyo.

  1. That's quite lovely. It'd be interesting to compare a glassless adapter and a lensed adapter focused at the same (close) thing. I've heard a lot of stories about how the glass adapters lose a lot of quality. I went the other router, had a bunch of M42 glass for macro and portrait use on my nikon bodies, and ended up getting a brace of Spotmatics to shoot them with 🙂
