I was looking through my images yesterday and I was noticing that there are some camera+adapted lens combinations that seem to keep popping up. I believe that some lenses match up well with some cameras. I'm not sure why that is, perhaps it's because the rendering characteristics of the lens suits the way a particular sensor captures an image but for whatever reason here are some combinations that I really like.

NEX (any model) and Canon FD 50/1.4 SSC

I actually prefer the way the Konica and Pentax render images with he OMD than the native lenses I have tried.

great shots all of them - perhaps we should go with bad shot combos
LOL, I have those too...I think my least favorite combo is the Olympus OM24/2.8 with the Fuji. It's a well regarded lens and I have used it with some success on m43 but it never worked for me on the Fuji. I clearly didn't use it in a way that played to its strengths. That said I really like the OM28/3.5 better.
