| p.1 #1 · Canon 5D Mk3 And Pentax Lenses (UPDATE: Macro Samples Added 07/25) |
I recently procured three MF lenses for my 5D Mk3, to start my foray into manual lenses (primarily for video)
1) SMC Pentax 50mm f/1.4 Pentax K Mount (purchased on the B&S forum for $75)
2) Super Takumar 50mm f/1.4 8-element M42 Mount
3) Yashinon 60mm f/2,8 Macro M42 Mount (purchased 2 and 3 from an old gentleman through Craigslist for $150, along with a bunch of filters thrown in)
I got the following two adapters for these lenses from Amazon:
Fotodiox 10LA-M42-EOS-P-V2 Pro Chrome (Type 2) Lens Mount Adapter, M42 Lens (42MM x 1 Thread Screw ) Lens to Canon EOS cameras Fits Canon EOS (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003Y2Z6X2/ref=oh_details_o00_s01_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1)
Pentax PK Lens to Canon EOS EF Mount Adapter (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005JV06QI/ref=oh_details_o03_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1)
The SMC on the K Mount throws an Err 20 when the camera is turned on. To handle this, I put the camera in Live View, and then mount the lens. Works great for both stills and video. I also have to unmount the lens when in LV mode, else the camera throws an Err 20.
Samples using the SMC (both wide open):
The Super-Tak is amazing. The M42 adapter goes on easy and there are no Err 20s or anything like that. The only issue is with infinity focus where the Err 20 pops up.

More to come later for the macro and the videos.
All in all, great little lenses. Once I get more comfortable, I will be ditching the Canon 50mm f/1.4 I currently have.
