You can use any mm lens you want as long as it was made to fit the K1000.
Is the lens a Pentax lens ?
Push the lens release button down and turn lens Clock-wise then while holding release button down quickly turn lens counter clock-wise, it should come right off.
If it did not then it must be disassembled to remove the lens.

The light meter is not working on my Pentax K1000


there are three different possibilities. remove three screws, take off bottom cover. remove three screws of battery holder, lift to see if the battery wire has corroded or broken off. solve by extending wire and resoldering. the next involves removing the top cover to see if the meter coil is dead,if this is the case it needs to be replaced, or there is a broken lead somewhere. usually it is cause no. 1.

Can I use the old lenses on a new camera


Your old Pentax lenses uses the Pentax K mount. The current Pentax digital SLRs all use the same K mount so the lenses will fit on them. You obviously won't get all the features available on new lenses, such as autofocus, but they should all work fine.

I have a Pentax k1000, and was given a few vivitar and olypus lenses. They do not fit the camera. What can I do?????


Vivitar makes lenses with a variety of mounts. Lenses with the Pentax K-mount can be used on the K1000, lenses with other mounts can not.

Olympus lenses will not mount onto a Pentax camera.

You can sell the lenses, give them to someone with the appropriate camera(s), or use them as paperweights.

I have a pentax k1000 35mm slr camera. the light meter wont move from the middle even when I put the camera up towards light and change the aperture size. I took it to a shop quickly and I was told that It...


The light meter has failed.

You can usually get it repaired (it's even possible to do so on a DIY basis if you're fairly handy, just search "k1000 meter repair", click here for one immediate possible fix), but it may be cheaper and easier to obtain a handheld light meter instead.

If you do get it repaired then at the same time get a full CLA service (Clean, Lubricate, Adjust) and have the gooey foam light seals replaced. Some repairers may try to charge extra for the latter one-off job, but usually do it for free when you smile and politely point out that you can take your business elsewhere.

Although simple and very basic, a good clean K1000 in a freshly serviced and fully functional condition is one of the only Pentax 35mm SLR's which is still worth reasonable money simply due to high demand for them. If you choose to keep it then it should be good for many more years of flawless service.

I hope that I've helped, please rate my answer.

Pentax K1000 35mm SLR Camera Lens will not turn or focus= stuck


Impact damage??? remove the lens and check the barrel for straightness. also the rear lens element must be perfectly straight. some of the latest lenses have a plastic helical gear that can be tapped out with a light hammer and a piece of wood ( 1in X 4in. ) used on the high end of the rear lens, if impacted.

Pentax k1000 ....lens will not focus...(one 50mm...other 70-210mm)...happened once before...brought to camera store and of course it focused...nothing wrong...took some pics and worked ok...now not...


Try this first.

Set your lens focus to infinity and focus your screen at a far away object (like a distant lampost). If it,s not in focus, then you have a misaligned mirror. Adjust your mirror so that a infinity setting, the split-screen image merge well to form a well focussed image. Hope that helps.

I would like to know what these do


Bower is brand name skylight is slightly yellow helps soften light there are diffrent densitys. Filter is mostly used to protect orginal glass of lens from dirt smudges scratches & rough treatment. Keep on lens most of the time.

Hyda brand name. PL 3 i believe to be a dark polarizing filter.

Quantaray 1A4 I believe is a haze or skylight filter.
Haze filter does almost the same as a skylight filter.

Hanimex brand name. Polarizing filter used to shoot through reflective glass or surfaces (water), also in color used to sharpen colors. The reason it is turnable is it is light directional beaning light comes through it at a angal hold up to light & turn it you can see how it darkens or litens. Also can stay on lens when not useing skylight filter.

reason you have 2 is one of each for two diffrent lens, 49mm & 55mm.

Hope this helped. Please rate.Thank You.
