    I'm looking for one (EF) at the moment. If someone (preferably in EU) has one for sale, pls let me know.

    I have a ProII 28-70mm f2.6 with Pentax mount (fully manual) with a PX-EF adaptor.

    I've also got a 28-70mm f2.8 ProI in Nikon mount (fully manual) with an F-EF adaptor. Both in pristine (near mint) condition.

    Hi everybody,

    I acted impulsively and bought the 2.6 in EF mount without considering the iris at all...

    At the moment my only camera is a NX1 which I am about to sell and get a GH5.

    Am I correct in assuming that the "deal" I got on the lens is going to be obliterated by an expensive EF to MFT adapter? Am I better off to sell the this EF and get a different mount? Nikon would be the most flexible, right?

    That really depends if you want to be able to adjust the iris or not. I suspect, unless you're using it on a native EF mount camera - or one with a 'smart' adaptor compatible with that lens - then controlling the iris may be difficult.

    Getting a lens with a manual iris means you're 100% assured you can control f/stops in the lens, regardless of the camera it's attached to. The Nikon & Pentax versions of these lenses have manual iris.

    I have this lens incoming. Very excited to test it against the Nikon AI lenses. Might be a good option for handheld.

    My version is definitely softer than my Nikon AI primes even at 5.6, which is to be expected though to some degree. I have the Bayonet 77mm 2.6-2.8 version. I'm not sure if others have noticed some slight softness but I still regularly shoot with it and mix it with my Nikons anyway. I

    So I tested it against my Nikon AIs and wll post an excerpt here. Just for comparison. Whatever you will take from that. It is soft wide open but works great @f4.0 and f5.6 (who knew...)
    These are the ATX Pro 28-70mm F2.6-2.8 vs Nikon 28mm2.8 AI/Nikon 50mm 1.4 AI/ Nikon 85mm 2.0 AI
    It is my first constant aperture zoom and even if its not as sharp I like it as an option very much.
    The color shifts when stopping down (it is warmer wide open) and I will never get used to that I guess.

    I found the same. I think it will sit @f4.0

    When I named the tread "poor mans ANGENIEUX" - consider it a hint, that this is not about sharpness

    Oh yes! Don't get me wrong. I think it's a great zoom and actually my first as I wrote. I am really keen to try it on i upcoming projects. Soft doesn't mean bad in my mind. I am reslly happy that you recommended that zoom! Also got a good deal on a good condition one for 180€ - which is great for me as a student.
