Pentax ME, 50mm f/1.7 SMC Pentax-M
Kodak Max 400 (exp. 10/2007)

This is my favorite shot from that Pentax ME and 50/1.7 lens I recently picked up on eBay. The muted colors and enhanced grain of the expired film really work here, complementing this gritty scene.

    I think these shots look very good Jim. I agree that this is a great look for this shot. I envy your functional ME’s, every one I have seen was inop. in one way or another.

    • I seem to have extraordinarily good luck finding working MEs. I just sent this one off to Eric Hendrickson for CLA — should come back like new!
