Recently I won a beautiful Pentax ES II and replaced my ES that had a non-working meter. I had bought an SMC Takumar 50/1.4 for the ES so I mounted this on my new ES II. It's a perfect combo! The ES II is such a nice camera to use. It's a perfect size, not quite as big as, say, an F-1, but definitely bigger than something like an MX or OM. One of the improvements of the ES II over the ES is that the batteries were relocated from the upper front of the body and replaced by a pretty conventionally located self-timer. The camera is wonderful to use and feels almost intuitive in action. With it set to "Auto" you just have to select an aperture, monitor your shutter speed, and shoot away! I'm quite impressed by this camera and have another roll of film in it all set to shoot. My subject on this particular day was my father-in-law's IH Farmall, a tractor with a beautiful coat of deep red paint. I used only the SMC Takumar 50/1.4 to shoot these pictures and I rather like the results! Of course these were all shot on Fuji 400 X-Tra, my usual film of choice.
