I'll start with A 50 f1.2. I think.
Same here. Then the Zenitar.

Since I've had the M50 1.7 from new (bundled with my still active MX) - I think that lens wins the right for first shot on another new camera, 37 years on... (It was relegated to 2nd turn when I got the K5 with 18-135).


F28 2.8
F50 1.4
DA* 200 2.8
Sigma 105 2.8 Macro
Sigma 15 2.8 FE
Sigma 10-20 3.5 with Pentax HD 1.4x

Then other FF and APS-C zooms in no particular order.

The subject may well be the dog - if he cooperates :-p

PS It makes me realise that:
  1. I have too many lens
  2. The relative lack of WR or AW primes in the current Pentax lens lineup or roadmap
  3. I still don't have enough lens

It won't be the first I try, but I really look forward to seeing how the Helios 44k-4 58mm looks on full frame. It has such amazing creamy bokeh wide open.

The first lens I plan to mount, though, will be AF so I can test the camera autofocus out. Most likely the FA 77 Ltd.

A35 2
A100 2.8
In that order?

Will be shooting with the following…

28mm M 2.8
Zeiss Distagon T* 35mm f/2
FA 43mm
FA 77mm
Sigma 70mm EX DG Macro
Zeiss Distagon T* 85mm F/1.4

But What I'm really keen to try is this! I would love to get an old Takumar 50mm F4 macro lens and pop that little beast onto my bellows and make use of the pixel shift technology for shots up to 5:1!! My 28mm, FA 43mm and 77mm would also work ok on it, but putting macro specific glass on the bellows, I'm really looking forward to seeing the results!!

Just Preordered the K-1 today! So excited!

Anything - or almost - sounding like A* FA* and Limited.

I will test everything I have on the K-1
I reckon the first cab off the rank will be the FA31, but I reserve the right to change my mind.
