The time has come to enter the Digital SLR world.
I have a competent selection of K mount 35mm lenses and I want to know if I can reuse them on a suitable Digital slr body? All the ad's / info sheets / ebay data lacks any relevant info, than again I may be missing something in my newbie status. huh.gif
Regards Doxy.

PS I've just joined and signed the 'public spaces' petition. That sort of Nanny state...............arrrrrrrgh.

Mark. I don't know. I have the lenses (all manual focus) and it seems a shame to ignore / retire them. Doxy

Hi Doxy. I believe that you can use manual focus K-mount lenses on a Pentax DSLR.

If you post which lenses you actually have, I'll be happy to find out some more specific info for you.
