The 30A is the only FFL lens but exceptional enough that it replaced my 63B for the convenience of its added versatility.
I did just the opposite - I became so enamored of the 63B that I sold my 30A.

I loved the 63B on APS-C, but not so much on m4/3 - the pixel density was a bridge just slightly too far. Also, the focus ring had become rather gritty and it seemed it was simply time to say goodbye.

Yes, I'm well aware of that site! And the time I've spent there is ridiculous!

I've had a 500mm 55B for a long time. Given to me with water damage inside, but it shoots "ok". Someday I'll tear it down and clean it. There is an excellent YouTube video for that.

Turns out I had a 01F 2x since the mid 90s. I don't remember getting specifically.

I kinda went on a shopping spree on Ebay...Got a 300mm 60B for fairly cheap. No hard case or bag, but included the 1.4x and came with a Nikon adapter. I have a D3300.

Picked up a 70-210 52A with Olympus mount locally for less than $40...

And a 70-210 46A with Fujica X adapter. I have a few Fujica X cameras.

Snagged a 60-300 23A for $55 shipped, with a PKAmount.

28-70 59A with M42 mount.

Found a 200mm 04B in a pawn shop...

I recently saw a guy with the old SP 200-500 31A, decided I WANTED it. Not needed. Should be here Saturday... About $190 shipped, has a Canon FD mount. I might still have an AE1 sitting in a box...

I ran across a mount I didn't know about. PK R... Ricoh. Has the damned Ricoh PIN! I've got a slew of Ricoh film bodies, an XR-M, and 3 KR30SPs... thought, why not, it should be here soon...

I want that 30A and the 63B. That 65B would be awesome. And that Uber rare 200F 2x convertor would be nice.

So, yeah, I know the Adaptall site...

Guess I should add, I have a Sigma 400 f5.6, Pentax FA 100-300, FA 80-320 and other film era AF lenses.

Had to buy some because my PK-R lenses have that Ricoh pin... I just didn't have to go so crazy... Save marbles for that 30A and 63B...

I did buy the Penta 1.7x AF adapter. Works better than expected, hoping to get it out with the 300 60B this weekend...

I had the 31A. It's pretty good.

There's currently one available at an outstanding price in the Marketplace along with the Pentax A 1.4x-L and 2x-L teleconverters, both of which work very well with that lens.

I used the 1.7x AFA along with my 360B, and it is a worthy combo.
