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

Please help. Want to buy a Pentax K7, will these lenses work. Pentax-F Fish-eye 1:3.5-4.5 17-28 TAMRON AF 70-300 1:4-5.6 LD Tele-Macro 1:2 Sigma APO 170-500 1:5-6.3 My exist camera is a Pentax MZ-50


yes they will, I have a 70-300 myself.

As a rule, ANY k-mount lens will work on any of the new pentax cameras to some extent.

At any rate you can shoot some very nice pic with even the oldest lenses. Manually ofcourse.

With an adapter you can even use m42 screw lenses too.

Hello I have a Pentax spot matik film camera. This camera comes with a lense with thread ... I was thinking in buy some of your lenses ( rokinon) 800- 1600mm. I would like to know if it will work in my...


The hard part will be getting a T-mount for the old Pentax screw mount. If you already have one, you should have no trouble. It won't even matter which one you buy, since you'll be removing the mount that comes with it and using the old Pentax screw instead.

If you don't have a T-mount, then you're going to have to hunt for one. You don't want to buy anything that's marked "for Pentax", since anything current will be the Pentax-K bayonet mount, not the old Pentax screw mount.

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
Please rate!

Can Film Camera lenses and Flash be used for Digital Camera Body


If u used to have a Pentax camera, i would recommend you buying a Pentax DSLR, because Pentax film lenses still works on Pentax DSLR. I still use some of my prime lenses on my K10D.

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
