Very nice. I'd like to pick your brains on how the 645 75mm lens performs on digital, as I don't often see results posted. I haven't bought an adapter yet. The original ones are rare and expensive but on ebay I can get a third party one for about $50, but so far haven't seen the need, but it could be useful sometimes, for 35mm film too.

So, anything about how the lens performs would be interesting - sharpness, handling etc...
Hi, my friend.
I'm so sorry that this picture I put up is token by A645 45 2.8 lens..I made a mistake..
the A645 75 2.8 is even more sharp than 45 2.8. and with a good bokei...I love it more..

I'm using a third party adapter which is KIPON brand. Its Precision is good but not very easy to handle..
for example, the aperture is hard to open to F2.8....
so, I'm planning to buy original one, though it's more high...

the picture below is taken by K-5 IIs &A645 75 2.8:

Wasn't sure if it was cool to post non-Pentax MF here but then I saw easytiger's excellent shot above with the very same camera I just picked up, the Fuji GA645i!

Fuji Pro 400H


Portra 800

Nice set and congrats on that Fuji.

When the thread started (before the 645D existed), many of the the few MF film shooters around here had more than one brand of camera and posted here. So you'll see all kinds of cameras including some large format in this thread. But posting an APS-C camera seems a bit of a stretch in light of the many that exist for that format.

I come to this thread to get the different perspective the medium format bodies provide so I agree with you on this.

I've only used it as intended and on the Q (I'm perverse like that), but at least in the center it's sharp enough for the Q, and designs like it are usually quite uniform in sharpness, so I imagine it's great on APS-C. Too much PF and a little soft at 2.8 (both probably fine on APS-C), no complaints at f/4.

As luck would have it I just posted about it here (which I might update with more shots later, but don't count on it).

Handing is as you might expect, except the adapter design (I have a "Cirrus" chinese adapter) makes the aperture ring pretty stiff in the open direction. Sometimes you have to twist the lens (which only sort of clicks into place) to open the aperture the final half stop or so.

Very nice results! I really like those Fuji pro 400H shots.

I have always admired your work and I´m glad that you have found your way into medium format film!

You may soon find that your K-5 will stay home, gathering dust...

I've used the A 75mm on a K-x. It was very nice, and above all needed no correction; the Takumar smc 85mmm was a bit sharper but, at least on the K-x, needed constant adjustment

I normally post photos taken with my Pentax 67 or 645 here, but lately I've been shooting images of airplanes with the Hasselblad, so that's all I've got to share just now.

These were all shot with a 503CXi and 100mm CFi lens. B&W was Ilford Delta 100, color was Velvia 100.

I'm in LOVE with my 645N!

Arista Edu 400 @ box speed shot with my Pentax 645N and developed in HC-110.






Pentax 645N + Kodak Portra 800

I think this is Fuji 400H + Pentax 645N
