Continuing my journey in the world of adapted lenses, I recently tested a trio of Pentax K-Mount Lenses adapted to my Fujifilm mirrorless camera. My friend Jun was kind enough to lend me some lenses that he inherited from his father (as I did, featured on this video). I took the lenses out to Yonghwasa Temple in Tongyeong, South Korea to test them in both photo and video applications. See my findings, as well as sample footage and photos in the video below:

In use the word vintage relates to something that is both old and obsolete. I think the better phrase is “legacy“ when describing adapting old lenses to a modern camera. Legacy is often used to describe old or outdated hardware.
I use legacy Pentax M42 screw mount lenses on my Fuji X-T2.
