Alternative Gear & Lenses - FM Forums might get you an idea.

It's Canon users and not Pentax or Nikon users due to the 44mm register distance on a EF Canon body.
i know Canon is the best for legacy glass cuz of the shortest register distance. maybe i'm being difficult here, but my skepticism was more on your claim that "most" 5D users use alternative glass.

Oh no, i meant that i *think* most Canon alternative glass users use that glass on a 5D, NOT that all 5D users use alt. glass.

I missed the last batch of shots 1st time around. That infinity sharpess on the tree canopy looks unbelievable.

I guess I could put on all the pentax lenses I have on 5D and give it a go. Maybe I will give it a go on the weekend.

請版友可以幫我翻譯...謝謝!
May any person help me to translate,tks.

1.Pentax FA Limited 鏡頭接在 5D 高光紫邊比在 k10d 或 k100d 輕微很多!
我沒有 k20d 所以無法評論...

2.沒有明顯或令人厭惡的色散現象

3.接 Fa 43/1.9 效果最佳!是個好用的標準鏡;在F4以後就非常銳利.

4.而 FA 77/1.8 則反而是在 APS-C 系統上等效約傳統135mm,反而更適合於人像攝影.

5.最後, FA 31/1.8 接在 5D 光圈開時,邊角會有失光現象...有點lomo效果;
縮至F2.8即沒有這問題,不過...也因為這樣的變化,我反而更喜愛 FA 31/1.8 !!

6.最近一些更新照片在下面的 2 個連結....
Day 1(FA Limited & 5D)

Day 3(FA Limited & 5D)

Pentax FA Limited lens attached to the 5D has more purple fringing than the K10 or K100d a lot. I don't have the K20D so I can make an opinion<---I don't know if purple fringing is the right translated word.

2.沒有明顯或令人厭惡的色散現象
There is no obvious or ugly color dispersion.


3.接 Fa 43/1.9 效果最佳!是個好用的標準鏡;在F4以後就非常銳利.
The Fa43/1.9 lens has the best results. Best normal lens and a F4 and up is really sharp.


4.而 FA 77/1.8 則反而是在 APS-C 系統上等效約傳統135mm,反而更適合於人像攝影.
Also the FA77 on a FF format is equal to 135mm and is very suitable for portraits.

5.最後, FA 31/1.8 接在 5D 光圈開時,邊角會有失光現象...有點lomo效果;
縮至F2.8即沒有這問題,不過...也因為這樣的變化,我反而更喜愛 FA 31/1.8 !!
Lastly, FA31 on a 5D wide open there is some vignetting with a little LOMO effect. STopped down to F2.8 there is no problem...because of this effect I really love the FA 31.

6.最近一些更新照片在下面的 2 個連結....
My most recent pictures are in these two links.

Wonderful!

I did try to mount my favourite Pentax glass onto my 5D. However, owing to the too many physical conflicts and I did not want to do much modifications / damages to my Pentax lenses and my "new" 5D (at that time), I abort totally.

I really admire your braveness and congrats on your success! However, beware of the dust entering your wonderful limited lenses, as you have also told yourself. :-)

it appears that the mirror hitting the lens is a problem with some super-takumars

does anyone have any information on ways to modify the canon to accept more lenses?

(i know for a fact that a portion of the mirror could easily be cut off at bottom, all a question of how much..)
