I tried it out with the adaptor on 5D. The focus barrel of Fa 77 ltd does hit the mirror at the back of camera and that has stopped me from using it ever since.

So can you show images from this combination?

That picture got me excited. Glass is where its at for me - if I could go full frame tomorrow with all my great full frame K glass all ready to go... I would be doing some shopping. But modding the lenses? Not so much.

Digitall FF with Pentax Ltd...

I must say that 5D with 31 rocks but it definitely needs -0.7EV...
I use 31 a lot with my mx and mz for B&W which i believe it still is unbeatable but i must say that 5D digital colour is superior due to its low grain, versatility and longterm cost...

That's just blasphemy.

By the way, the pictures from the link in the OP were made with a PENTAX K100D.

Sorry, I cannot agree with your criticism...

1.The FF is each person's dream.

2.The lens should be used, but not deposited.

Definately a dream of mine and many, but certainly not all. Keep up the interesting work though Stevelin. I'll take FF as soon as I can get it if I can have my glass!

And after all, there will be many in a brand specific forum who will have bias (though there is no need, its all just tools for photographers, who cares the name on it really? As long as it does the job).

not really. FA Limited lenses are not exactly "Limited" in quantity and it's good to be recognized by shooters of other brands that we have the best short compact primes. bother because you pair up one of the best sensors with some of the best glass.

thanks for posting this Steven, interesting results. i look forward to a FF body so that we can use the FA Limiteds for their intended focal lengths.
