First I would try my Pentax A 50mm f/1.2, then Chinon multi-coated 55mm f/1.4 to compare and finally MC Mir 35mm f/2 to see how they all feel flush with the camera and with manual controls all properly aligned and mounted securely. I would be itching to try a modern fast Pentax AF zoom (which is why I would really want the camera) or even a vintage manual one, as I have found the manual zooms I got for my A7R in different mounts to be excellent, with extremely smooth focus and zoom action, as smooth or in one case smoother than even the Chinon. All of my lenses presently are fully manual bar one, which has no manual aperture :I

My Pentax SMC A35-105! A nice portrait at 50 and 85 mm!
That's a great range of focal lengths, I would snap up that lens very quickly to try it out XD

It is a great lens. Versatile and optically very good. Very heavy. I always felt I had to carry a 28 F 2.8 along with it, so it never was the "all-in-one" that I wanted it to be.

A lens that no one else has...

CPC Phase 2 24/2.8

(Yes that is my lens and my picture from back in 2004)

It's been over 30 years since I first bought that lens.
I can't wait to see it on the FF.

Then, of course my Limited 31mm

Yes it is, i will want to upgrade the 70-200 to a better one, hopefully the new one, but that might have to wait a while after i get the body, mean time i can play with what i have now.. but im actually doing some numbers for the 77 f1.8. it all depends the price of the body.

First lenses to mount-

Pentax 77 ltd
Canon FL 55 f 1.2 (in K mount)
Pentax 43 ltd

New:
Pentax 77 ltd
Pentax 31 ltd
Canon FL 55 f 1.2 (in K mount) tied with Pentax 43 ltd


I had to modify my listing because I just got the 31 mm f 1.8 limited. The 77 is still first because I am thinking that with FF it can work its magic more often for me. At present, I love everything about it except for the focal length, which makes me keep backing up to get the desired image in the viewfinder. So maybe I will drop out the Canon FL 55 and substitute the 31 limited, or maybe keep the Canon FL 55 and drop the 43 limited off the list. Well, I am not really sure, but I am sure I would try all four of these lenses on the first day I own the ff. Any way, soon after trying these four, I have to try the Pentax 50 mm f 2.8 macro and try its unparalleled resolving power on the ff. After that I have to try out all the old manual Tamiokas.

SoooooooooOOOoooooo, Many to choose from, but I think I would mount my Sigma 8mm circular fisheye, and see it image as it was made to, full circle image on a FF.


What would I shoot, It's a fisheye, "Everything!" hahahahha.


Now I'm just getting excited.


Then the FA 20-35, then my FA 17-28, then my Sigma EX 12-24, then my FA*85, then my Sigma EX 300/2.8.... head about to exxxxxplode...... wish I had a time machine to travel into the future..
