(And before the question pops up: no, I will *never* butcher my lenses to make them work on the 5D).
You sure you don't want to chop the end of that 250-600mm?

Is that a rhetoric question?

Don't those need correction lenses, though?
The registry distance on K-mount is 1.45 mm longer than on the EF mount, so there you have the answer.

Butchering a hard-to-get Pentax lens to kludge it on a Canon body is.. Probably not worthwhile.
Ok, one more time: You do not have to modify that lens to mount it on the Canon aps-c body.

Just sayin...

Witch result where you looking for? Making it a 400-600mm or a 250-500mm lens?

Well I'm not gonna butcher my FA*85mm lens, so don't worry. So this not the way to go and I'n thinking it over to buy a Canon body at the time, and probably not doing it.
