Lovely looking lens, I have always wanted to try one with the Pentax 1.7x converter

I've always wanted to try a 1.2 on full frame...
This one does look a lovely example, it has to be said (no surprises there for LB).

Your wish is my command.....

1. With 1.7AF adapter at f1.2 No PP



2. As above but some PP



3. Just the A 50mm f1.2 at maximum aperture No PP



4. As above but some PP



and a couple with the F adapter closed down a bit...

Cheers Lenny, not bad actually, what F stop is that shooting at wide open with the 1.7x?

For some reason it reports F2.8 - but that would mean it operates with a light reduction of more than 2 stops when it is supposed to reduce by 1.5 stops (I'm sure I've read that it is just mis-reporting)

It is usable at maximum aperture but stopping down by just a little makes a real difference - that slight fuzzy glow becomes less (although for portraits it can be rather nice). It is by far the most difficult lens to focus accurately for me - the D FA* is far easier - but when you get it right it is superb, and stopped down it has great resolution
