Question about Pentax MZ-60 QD 35mm SLR Camera

1 Answer

Trouble with Pentax MZ 60 camera.

I was told before buying this camera body that it would work with the K mount lenses off my K 1000 and P 30. The lenses will mount up, but as soon as they are connected the camera ceases to function totally. Any idea what is happening? Thanks so much from Barry, Waco, Texas

    Thanks so much for the reply. I found that the camera works perfectly with NO lens attached. I then found a website that claims that this camera will only work with auto focus lenses, whether set for manual or auto focus use. Guess I'll have to find an auto focus lens that will work, and do my research before I buy next time! Thanks again, Barry

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.

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.

Can you get a digi body camera that will take the 35mm lenses for pentax MZ-7


Hi,

You can try buying a Pentax SLR. But you most probably will need a converter to attach the lens.(That is if the lens will even work at all on the new body).

Cheers

Can you help me purchase a tele converter lens for a MZ-60 camera


You need to track down a 2x teleconverter that has a Pentax A mount for it to work correctly on the moun t of your camera.

I believe Adorama has one here:

Check with them first to ensure compatibility
