DA 35/2.4+K-5 (APS) vs. Takumar 55/1.8+Canon 5D (FF) !

Okey - I must confess something...I bought recently cheap used Canon 5D FF dslr as my second system with K-5. Mainly for my M42 primes, and because I want to find out what it feels shoot with FF dslr.

I really hope that Pentax would offer us a FF dslr someday (hopefully in the near future), but until then I'll use this old canon dog. It requires some adaptation

Anyway, now I want to explore how different perspective FF sensor can give over APS size, I mean when shooting especially at "normal" focal lenghts with quite fast apertures (when DOF is narrow)...

Here is my first attempt to see some differences:

Canon 5D + Takumar 55/1.8 (f/1.8):

Canon 5D + Takumar 55/1.8 (f/2.8):

Pentax K-5 + DA 35/2.4 (f/2.4) (52mm FF equiv.):

Pentax K-5 + DA 35/2.4 (f/2.4) - taken slightly closer:

Well...What you think about these samples?
