Adapter from Pentax 67 lenses to Canon EOS

I am looking for an adapter so I can fit my 67 lenses on a Canon 6D. This will answer all my prayers and will certainly change the look of my photography.

To get a much better result you should be coupling these 67 lenses to a 67 body. The 67 lenses are not optimised for digital at all.

Well, here's the situation.


I don't wanna use the same Canon lenses that are in 12 million digital bodies like mine.
I don't like to apply digital filters.
I dont wanna develop film.
I dont wanna scan negatives.

I want to see the results... One thing I know. I will look different.
And the adapter is too cheap to let it pass.

Try them out, it won't hurt! You won't have any problems with vignetting at least.

And you should not use FA Ltd lenses (31mm, 43mm, 77mm) on crop Pentax body (like K3). They are also not optimised for digital and they are made for larger format .
I use on Canon 5D mkII few Mamiya 645 lenses and they are dirty cheap stellar performers and for 645 lenses are very small.

If you happen to have a 67 system, as I do, a cheap adapter to use the lenses on a digital body makes sense. They are not designed for digital to be sure, but usable nevertheless. In some cases the 67 glass outperforms modern lenses. I declare my 75mm f/4.5 SMC Takumar the sharpest lens in my bag and that is with it wide open. Even at pixel level it is tack sharp and renders beautifully. Made for film, but more than adequate for digital. Good luck and have fun with a whole new avenue of glass.
