Another snowy day

It started snowing again today late in the morning - rather heavily actually, and I caught a colleague on her way into our office building… I don't think she noticed me pointing my camera at her, she was busy keeping her head down trying to keep the snowflakes from hitting her face…

Gear used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 + M42 to micro 4/3 Adapter + Pentax SMC Takumar f1.4/50mm.
This is lovely. Quite nice to have the focus on the snow and not on the background.

@caterina Hi Caterina... Thank you very much for your lovely comment... but regarding the technical specifications... I'm not sure what you are asking me... I've only listed the "tools" I have used to take this photo (aka. gear used)... My camera (that's the Olympus OM-D E-M5") plus the adapter used to mount the vintage lens on my modern camera (that's the "M42 to micro 4/3 Adapter", otherwise mounts will not match, so you need adapters to mount vintage lenses to modern cameras) and last but not least there's the name of the lens itself (that's the "SMC Takumar f1.4/50mm")... I'd like to help, but probably need more info to do so :-).

No no thank you. Now it is clear to me. And btw I have old beautiful lenses that I never tried to adapt to the digital camera. Today I’ll go to the shop and see if I can use them. So, you see, you helped me a lot! I will now follow you and your beautiful photos

@caterina You are most welcome... and please ask if there is anything I can do to help you... Regarding adapters you will probably find them most cheap on Ebay... what is the name/model of your vintage lens and what camera are you thinking about using it with (maybe I can find a suitable adapter for you on ebay)?

@atchoo Thank you Ann. I will answer to all your kind questions as soon as I can get hold of my old lenses that are now at home in a box in the garage. Anyway they are lla Nikin and the new camera is a Nikon D3200

all Nikon

@caterina I'm not all that familiar with the history of Nikon (I have always used Olympus), but I would definitely expect that if your vintage lenses are Nikon and your camera are Nikon, then they should fit together... unless your vintage lenses are very old (again I'm not all that familiar with the history of Nikon)
