I will first test it out with my old Pentax-M 50mm f/1.4! I would finally like to see the result of it using an actual full frame digital Pentax...

And to test it with a modern lens, I'm going to try it out with my Pentax DA 40mm f2.8 XS.
I just hope the full frame camera won't automatically turn on its crop mode when you snap on a DA lens...
This lens covers a full fram image circle, and that would be a super compact full frame set up!

It will be the Carl Zeiss 1,4 50mm Planar, set to an aperture of 5.6

I am lucky to have access to some other lenses withr FF coverage, too, but this one has the privilege to be the very first

I would test one of my Ricoh SLR lens on this bad boy, I was fond of my 135mm manual lens.

I would definitely, at least for a few weeks, maybe months, use my 50mm 1.4. That was my walk-around lens in the 60s and 70s. I want to get that good old feeling back.

My photo habits have changed a lot since then.... I mostly do birding with my 55-300 zoom.

That said.... I am awfully tempted by the 18-135mm

The very first lens I would mount on the new Pentax FF DSLR would be the SMC FA43 Limited f1.9; to see the world through the "true-normal" (*) member of the FA Limited trio, as planned and designed by Jun Hirakawa.

(*) The diagonal of a FF sensor 36mm x 24mm is 43mm.

First lens

Wow ... this is tough ... my gut reaction was the FA* 24mm but upon further review perhaps the FA 20mm ... or maybe the FA 31mm ... definitely a wide angle lens.

For me it would also be the FA 50/1.4 followed by the FA limiters. For birding I suspect the K3 will still be my best friend.

Da 50mm 1.8. I'd probably shoot the first image in the camera store. I dont think i can wait to have my first shot at home.

FA 43. I'd like to see this lens with its original field of view.

Samyang 14. My widest FF lens, to experience the maximum field of view.

Sears 135/2.8. This is my smoothest focusing manual lens and will be great with the larger viewfinder. My copy is surprisingly sharp and contrasty for such cheap, old glass.

Whatever new normal-wide zoom lens gets released with the FF body. Ricoh announced the 2 long zooms, but they must have a wider FF zoom on the way. If I buy the Pentax FF it would likely be bundled with this lens.

I would start with my M50/4 Macro and do some resolution testing with that huge sensor.
