Pentax A 50 1.2 For Canon EOS FF

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax A 50 1.2 For Canon EOS FF

Asking Price
$450 USD now $400

Item Location
Montrose,Co (United States)

Item Description
Pentax A 50 1.2 adapted for Canon EOS FF. This lens works great on Canon 5D Mark iii and 6D. You must use stop down metering because the aperture lever has been removed. You can remove the EOS adapter and this lens will work on Pentax cameras as well, with stop down metering. The aperture must be adjusted manually the A mode does not work. If you look of the pic of it mounted on the 5D Mark iii you can see it mounts slightly to the side so your aperture numbers are not dead center but just a bit to the side. There is screw that is stripped on the back, so if you plan to replace the aperture lever it's not going to happen.
Will trade for a FA 43 1.9 limited plus some cash on my end.

I'm still a little nervous someone will pretend to buy, just to get my address to send hate mail. I will say my Pentax M 35 F2 on my Canon FF is a dream come true. It's always been about the glass not the camera right

We can still do that here with PM hate mail.

Well ish.

I must admit I've got this lens too (the SMC Pentax-A 50mm F1.2), but mine still functions as intended on Pentax equipment, my FF LX and various DSLR bodies too.

You might consider contacting Eric to see what he would charge to replace the aperture lever.

And that is a very good idea. Might be worth it to get the value back up.

Did that AF confirm chip require drilling or is it simply glued on? It would be a pity if the whole rear mount had to be replaced!

Had you come around before changing the mount around, I'm sure someone would've traded you an M series for this one. (Heck, grinding the M series lever is less of a travesty, since DSLRs use crippled K anyhow. Stop down metering might be preferred with that (At least AV works then))

Definitely get the lever replaced if possible. Eric might even be able to fix that roughed up rear element border.

Thanks for the advice everyone but I am not looking to "fix it". There are people on this forum that have FF Canon DSLR's and that's why I have it listed here. But I appreciate the input.

I might consider it if you ship worldwide.
I just sold my 5D and thinking to get a 6D.

Why damage the A version like this? The K version costs half as much (about 240 EUR versus the 420 EUR of a fully working A) and the only difference is being destroyed in the act of crippling the aperture lever.

Also there is no need for the crippling at all, since by using liveview you can easily work with a non-crippled version on FF Canons.

Basically it makes more sense to shave off the mirror on the camera.
