There are some untapped LS lenses out there...

I was looking into Hasselblad-P645 adapters and I noticed that they're all dumb-adapters. IE no special functions. There must be a way to design one that is capable of triggering the leaf shutter. Does anyone know of one that exists?

The Flex body had a system, in that a release cable would go in the side of the lens mount and trigger the shutter. I think a lever would cock it. It can't be that mechanically complicated to work this out...

Does anyone know the flash sync of the CMOS itself? Is it capable of understanding a 1/500th of a second strobe with the whole chip exposed? How does the camera act when a Pentax LS lens is attached?

I used the Fotodiox with a Hassy CF 250/5.6 V lnes and to my surpise it beeps and shows a read dot (or spot if you have it set to spot) where image is in focus. Very simple and worked like a charm. Sure it's MF but who cares if you already own V lenses. It's only $80. Did you read Ming Thein's comments on using V lenses on the 645Z?
