31mm Limited lens on 6x7 or 67ii?

Does anyone know if the Pentax 31mm Limited lens that they are giving away will fit on the 6x7 or 67ii?
Thank you.

It won't. The 31mm is a K-mount lens and as such it doesn't cover a medium format image circle.

Not to mention that it would have to sit far inside the camera body for even close to infinity focus.

If you want a nice lens with similar field of view as the 31mm Limited (on 35mm) for the 67, try going with the late model 55mm F4 for the 67- sure, it's no where near as "bright" but IMO has better rendering and very nice characteristics for that field of view. I own both and use both.

You can find the 55mm ridiculously cheap on eBay in very good shape- think $150 - $250.

Biggest drawback is that like all 67 lenses, it's big and heavy. Some of us like that, which is why I use several on my 645.

But not at the same time....
