The best £30 I spent this Black Friday gave my old lenses new purpose

This Black Friday I finally bought a mount adapter for my collection of vintage film lenses, and it has given them a whole new lease on life!

I have been collecting vintage film lenses for my Pentax ME camera for years, but with the price of film and development skyrocketing and my free time recently doing the opposite, I haven't been out shooting much, leaving all my beautiful vintage glass to gather dust on a shelf.
