Nikon 50mm f1.4 on a K20d
I'm hot on the trail of more Nikkors. I've used an old Nikkor 85/2 unmodified, then dremeled off some bottom protrusions for a tight K20D fit, complete with Catch-In-Focus capability. I did the same with a Tokina-RMC 35-135. I've a couple other 3rd-party F-mounts that can't be easily trimmed, so I just force-fit them -- no CIF. But I'm hoping the real Nikkors can be as readily modded as the 85/2. That's one of my take-everywhere lenses now.

Interesting to see that the Pentax version is cheaper than the Canon.

In order to use that 50mm all the time I would have to shave off part of the black metal surrounding the rear element. I have the lathe to do it but I just haven't done it yet. The lens bayonet will mount up but just enough to stay on. Beyond that photo I show and a couple others, I haven't done much with it. No real need as I'm pretty well covered in Pentax 50mm lenses. Somebody gave me a Nikon EF (non working) and that lens so I just tried it for grins and giggles.
