Amazing work as usual Frederick!

Whenever I start to blame my old K5 Classic, or get the urge to upgrade to a K3 or FF, I just remind myself to look at your body of work (and this thread) and have to admit the K5 is still right up there in capability with the best.
(even if I would like a little larger file size... heh heh)

Thanks for sharing,
Eric

Great Frederic.

And you are starting to do "crazy" stuff like me?

What's this business of a Canon FD 85/1.2 with FD/PK adapter and Unitube ! J

Cheers, thank you.
In general how good is the 85 f1.2 on the Pentax? Do you have any general scene examples?

Just FYI ... here's what the Scoptics adapter looks like ... I use it de-glassed as a combo adapter/extension tube in one.

Here with the FD 135/2.5. J

ahh, thanks for that, so it does come with glass in the adapter, why? But it is ok to de-glass. Can you tell me about that? Thanks.

The single glass element allows for infinity focus due to the difference in registration distances.

I tried it with the element and thought it was quite poor, so I removed it.

It's just screwed in by a retaining ring, if memory serves me correctly.

But to be sure, let me double check that detail later ... J
