No, I haven't re-attempted that one yet. The pancake thing lost its appeal when I realized that a 5D body (or even xxD body) is simply not compact, even with just the body cap on. On the other hand, I do remember being encouraged by the samples I took with the 45/2 and 45mm fits nicely between 28 and 58.
My latest conversion to EOS was the FD 35-105/3.5. One of my favourite lenses when I shot an AE-1 P. Unfortunately, the lens does not do so well in the digital world. I think this copy that I converted must be a really bad copy, because it is nearly useless. The good news is, it is certainly convertible, with full manual aperture control, etc. I'm getting better at FDs now.
I had an Ae-1P too, great little camera. Quite a bit of the Delhi shots on my site were taken with it back in 2000. The 35-105 was a legendary lens in the FD world, I am surprised that yours is not up to snuff. Years ago, I sold all of my FD lenses and now I regret it... The FD 17mm would be a prime target for conversion - hint, hint...
The 85mm SSC was one special lens though, congrats on the conversion, I am wondering what you have up your sleeve next...
