    Is that from that lens you had me fetch for you? Fun thread BTW, worth breaking my vow of lurkiness.

    I got out tonight and took some more pics, much more favorable lighting, and brain working much better too :-)

    Another lens of mine that needs more use is my 1980's Yashica ML 50mm f/1.7
    A very inexpensive lens on eBay, I've seen it as low as $20USD... considered a real steal for the price.








    Dust those 50mm's off and come on in, the water is fine :-)

    Av, do any of these great lenses of yours come with a compatible mount for my camera?

    50mm Minolta MD Macro on the Nikon 3200. Shooting wide open at 1/60. Lens was out about the same time I was in HS so guessing it might be a vintage lens.....

    Nice pics Mach

    Katie, my knowledge of what can and cant be used is limited to Canon
    Crissy and Warren are the true guru's.... What little I know, I learned from them.

    What model Camera do you have?
    (I assume your not talking about the K1000)

    Hey Katie. I know you asked Av, but I will try to answer your question. The short answer is, it depends. What camera would you want to mount the lenses to?

    Excellent pictures everyone! Keep them coming!
    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    Why not buy a Pentax DSLR? All your old lenses are compatible with all the Pentax DSLRs. Your lenses all appear to be the "A" versions with the small lock button on the aperture ring to put them in "auto" mode. This means that you can use matrix metering and all the auto modes as well as manual metering. Just no autofocus. However the shake reduction is in the camera body so you get image stabilization with your manual focus lenses. Older lenses (including screwmount lenses) without the "A" lock require stop-down metering but can also benefit from shake reduction. Screwmount lenses require an adapter but Pentax has made one since the bayonet mount was introduced in the 1970s. These can be used on your K-1000 also.

    As far as macro lenses as long at is has an aperture ring and a k-mount it can be used on either your K-1000 or a DSLR. Again the only limitation is that stop-down metering must be used in the DSLR if there is no "A" lock on the lens.

    Used bodies in excellent condition for cheap are easily found on KEH or the Pentax Forum Marketplace.
