    I've tested the Pen F 60mm once on my a7 and it covered the full frame sensor really good, have anyone tested on the 38mm 1.8 on it? If it does cover the sensor it sounds like quite the combination, a really fast 35mm-ish that is tiny.

    Even if you haven't tested the lens on full frame i'd still appriciate some thoughts on the lens View attachment 67739

    I tested it on my old A7. It vignetted badly. Though I loved that lens on my NEX-6, it was no good on the A7. I sold it soon thereafter.

    Not with the A7. I have some taken with the NEX-6.

    I'm in the middle of a Lightroom meltdown and have quite a workload on my desk. So I may not be able to get to this for a couple of days.

    If I remember rightly wasn't the original Pen F a half frame camera? therefore the sensor coverage from the lens is going to be more akin to M4/3 and won't cover a FF or APS-C sensor fully.

    The Pen-F half-frame lenses work fine with Sony APS-C. The entire sensor is covered. But as for the original poster's inquiry, the 38mm f/1.8 won't work on full-frame.
    It's my favorite vintage lens on my a6000.
