(as an alternative to the expensive modern lenses)

Taken with a $15 Sigma 28mm 2.8 mini wide attached to a 600D with a OM to eos adapter ring with focus confirmation chip.
The venue is not really well- lit. camera set to aperture priority and lens f2.8 (maximum aperture)
Mild sharpening adjustment in Photoshop.

Please post your images taken with all brands of vintage manual lenses on a Canon(modified) body.

I guess beginners (like myself) normally start with a rebel.  Actually, I couldn't even afford a 600D. I borrowed it from my friend for this weekend. I am stilling shooting with a 40D which I have bought with the recommendations of some kind people here in this forum.

Of course there are exceptions......but will people put a cheap vintage lens like mine on a 1 or 3 series  body.

Or may be I should alter the subject to "anything shot with a cheap vintage manual lens on a rebel body" or "anything shot with a vinatge manual lens on a Canon body". I decide to choose the later because, there may be someone who shoots with their Leica lenses on expensive FF bodies.

Thank you for asking me anyway.

Honestly, your 40D is better than the 600D you borrowed, even though comparing specs that may not be apparent. As you shoot more you'll grow to appreciate the better build quality and handling/ergonomics.

Thanks for your kind advice. I am just experimenting different equipment I could get hold of.

I love my 40D so far. I will work hard this summer and save some $$ for my next target.

All shot with a 60D and various adapters.

Pentax Super-Takumar 50mm f1.4: http://www.jongilchristphotography.com/Resources/Testing/Super-Tak-50-14/24242539_QgTx5q

Several bokeh tests, including a Canon FL 55mm f1.2 and an Olympus/Zuiko 35mm f2.8 Shift Lens: http://www.jongilchristphotography.com/Resources/Testing/Bokeh-Tests/28858427_phQ5Bq

Some cheapo 400mm and 500mm Rokinon/Quantaray/Opteka/Samyang long teles:  http://www.jongilchristphotography.com/Resources/Testing/400mm-500mm-1000mm/29053611_bVQ7hx

A whole bunch of various relatively fast lenses.  Good luck figuring out all the particulars but in general I would shoot a full range of apertures, each aperture being shot with a 3-shot bracket.  http://www.jongilchristphotography.com/Resources/Testing/Fast-Lenses-not-85-12/17031248_SjmWdT

I'm selling most of these lenses, so if you're interested drop me a pm.
