Planar 50 f1/1.8 question

what camera mount that this lens fit in really?

I heard that some use it in their 5D but they have to shave a small part of the mirror I think. but I don't like the idea of the shaving part.

oh btw, can it be used with a Pentax dSLR using a particular adapter?

Planar 50/1.8 would be a Rollei QBM mount. Can only be mounted on Rollei (duh) or Canon with an adapter, but will hit mirror on the 5D/Mk II over 10m or so. No way to use it on Pentax.

If you want the same glass, look for Voigtländer Color-Ultron 50mm f1.8. Virtually identical optics.

The Voigtländer Color-Ultron 50/1.8 may be found in M42 screw mount and will fit both brands with appropriate adapters.
