Magnets are dangerous around any electronic memory devices.  The screw mount is also much more secure. I have a friend that droped a Sony A100 in the first hour of use. It took 3 weeks and $200.00 to get it fixed. I am a professional photographer. I  use a D70 , A100 and Fuji D260. I wouldn't have a magnet withinn an arms length of nay electronic equiptment.

HOW TO PUT Fotodiox 49mm Filter Thread Macro Reverse Mount Adapter Ring for Sony E-series


The ring threads onto the front of any lens with a 49mm filter thread, just like a filter. The front of the lens then fits onto a camera body, effectively mounting the lens "backwards" or reversed. With most lenses, this allows the lens to focus very close, for close-up or "macro" photography.

Toyo 500mm lens to nikon d90 mount


At the risk of being obvious, you need a Nikon mount.

The lens comes with a T-mount. This is a "universal" mount with adapters for almost any camera mount, including the Nikon F mount. If the lens doesn't come with one, get a Nikon T-mount adapter.

The lens doesn't have any electronics, so you'll be shooting completely manual. No autofocus, no autoexposure, not even any exposure help from the camera's light meter.

How to mount Quantaray 70-300mm F/4.0-5.6 Zoom Lens in Sony Alpha DSLR?


This 3rd party lens (like all of them) makes lenses specifically to fit Nikon, Canon, Pentax, Minolta, etc. camera body mounts. Each has a style mount that is unique. You can not simply mount a lens made for use on a Nikon body on a Sony body.

In order to use this lens, it MUST be the model designed for use on a Sony camera. Functionally, the lens will be nearly identical on any camera it is designed to fit, only the mount (the portion that actually mates to the camera body) differs from one lens to the other.

If you bought this lens without specifying it needs to be used with a Sony camera body (and it is for a different camera) it will NOT mount. Determine if the lens is indeed designed for a Sony camera body. You may find additional letters & numbers on the lens that can help you determine which camera body brand it fits by plugging the number into Google for a search. Additionally, the Quantaray brand is / was a Ritz Camera "house" brand. You could probably bring it to one of their stores and learn all you need to know about the lens there.

Good luck!

I want to go digital will my lens fit on a digital camera if yes what model camera should i get


Any of your lenses will fit on any Nikon digital SLR camera. However, there are several things to consider.

Most Nikon digital SLRs have a sensor smaller than a frame of 35mm film. This means that your lenses will give the same angle of view as a lens with a focal length 1.5 times longer. For example, your 50mm lens will give the same angle of view as a 75mm lens would. This applies to all Nikon dSLRs except the D700 and D3 series.

If the lens does not have the electronics to communicate with the camera, some dSLRs will not be able to meter with them. Of the current models, the D7000, D300s, D700, and D3 series will work.

Most old autofocus lenses will not autofocus on some dSLRs. Unless the lens is designated "AF-S" they will not autofocus on the D3000, D3100, and the older D40, D40x, and D60.

I have a pentax slr film camera and i want to know ii the lens will work on a Nikon dlsr digital camera


No. Nikon has been using the same lens mount since about 1959. Pentax has changed their mount once since then, but not to the same thing.

Do all nikon lenses mount the same or are the digital cameras difrent? I own a nikon 6006 camera and want to know if i can use my lenses with the D90 or do I need to get diffrent lenses?


Yes and no. Physically they will all fit (with very rare exceptions, such as the 6mm f/2.8 fisheye).

Most Nikon dSLRs have a sensor that is smaller than a frame of 35mm film. What this means is that you end up using only the central area of each lens. In effect this means that each of your lenses is effectively 1.5 times longer. A 200mm lens on a digital camera will give you the same angle of view a 300mm lens on a film camera gives you. The D3 family and the D700 are the exceptions, behaving similar to a film camera in this respect.

Older Nikon lenses do not have the electronic circuitry necessary to communicate with newer cameras. In the case of the D90, this means that such lenses will not communicate with the camera's exposure meter. They can still be used in Manual mode, but without assistance from the meter. You'll need to move up to a D300 if you want to meter with such lenses.

Bear in mind that lens technology continues to improve every year. Given an old lens and a new lens of similar focal length (or zoom range), the new lens will almost invariably outperform the old one.

Canon EOS 500n 35mm Film Camera, best cheap lens


In short, you won't. All Canon Digital SLR's use the same lens mounting system as your EOS 500n and new lenses are very expensive especially for those who have purchased full-frame models.

As a result, demand for the lenses which fit your camera is very high and so prices are high as well: it's just basic supply and demand economics. There were cheaply made kit lenses available with your camera when it was new, but like most kit lenses they weren't built to last, so most of the older ones are either non-functional or have been scrapped after owners upgraded. All that leaves are the higher quality, well built, lenses from the time your camera was made which are far cheaper than new lenses but still comparatively expensive.

If you want cheap lenses then you've picked the wrong system. Buy an older FD mount Canon SLR if you want to stay with Canon; you'll then find that lenses are so cheap that they're often offered for free on your local FreeCycle group. The same source is where I've got all of my manual focus (and some AF) SLR equipment over the last few years.

Problem


which rim are you talking about, the bayonet mount?

Pentax ES2; do bayonet lens fit digital Pentax SLR?


Any Pentax K-mount lens will fit any Pentax DSLR. The DSLR will fire the shutter.  There is a menu setting (RTFM) which allows the use of older lenses, but you will lose some of the automation (again RTFM). Remember to allow that the effective focal length when using a "film" lens on a DSLR body goes up by 50%.
A standard 50mm lens becomes a 75mm equivalent, but stays a large aperture.
