The Botanical Lens 35-105mm/F3.5 on Samsung mirrorless
2

Today the postal turtle brought me a new toy – Pentax K to Samsung NX adapter with aperture control. I bought it to mount my Botanical Lens on the Samsung NX30 and use electronic viewfinder for better focusing.

Everything works properly, no "lens detached" message, and the focus peaking and magnification make focusing a breeze. Aperture is set by the lens aperture ring. This adapter can be used with modern lenses too but it's impossible to set exact F-stop.

It will be fun to compare the Botanical Lens to the excellent Samsung 60mm/F2.8 macro.

As usual, new photo toys arrive when it's raining outside, so here's an indoor catography for now. See the full size!
