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.

How do you remove the lense? Bought new lense but didn't come with instructions on how to remove the old one.


Switch off your camera before changing or removing lenses to avoid dust being attracted to the sensor
If you camera is a Canon Eos Digital Single Lens Reflex, the lens fits onto the body by being inserted into the 'hole' in the front of the body. To disengage the lens, press the button found at 4 o'clock on the body looking at it from the front and right way up. At the same time twist the lens anticlockwise and the body and lens will separate.
To mount a lens, line up either the red dots on the lens and body or the white rectangle, insert the lens into the recess and twist clockwise until you feel and hear it click home I hope this helps

Will my quantaray tech-10 NF AF zoom lens (for me


Yes, with caveats. The autofocus won't work on D40/D60/D3000/D5000. The metering may not work in all modes on all cameras. Since you didn't specify which camera, I can't give you a better answer than that.

I have 30-year-old Nikon lenses working fine on my D90, but without metering. And the old lenses date before the invention of autofocus.

I have an old Pantax 35mm SLR camera (zx5). Would the lenses still fit the new bodies or do I need to purchase an entire new kit?


Nope! Your old Pentax (and Taukimar!) lenses will still work. Any type of "K-Mount" lens will work on a Pentax digital.

Cannon lenses


All canon EF lenses (and compatibles e.g. Sigma EX) can be used with both analog and digital  EOS-bodies. Depending on the sensor size (usually smaller than a 35 mm negative) a crop-factor due to the smaller field of view must be considered.  Example: Canon EF 50mm/1.8 lens used on a digital EOS (40D, crop factor 1.6) equals a 80mm lens (50mm x 1.6) compared to analog cameras using 35mm film. Some digital EOS-models can also use EF-S lens-series.

Canon digital camera


Hey jpmodell,
Whether or not you can use your old lenses on a new DSLR body depends on how old your lenses are and what model lenses they are. Modern Canon DSLR cameras use what is called the EF mount which was introduced by Canon in 1987. Canon lenses prior to 1987 have what is called the FD mount which will not directly mount onto new digital cameras. Some companies do make an adapter to allow the user to mount an FD lens onto an EF mount camera but it would provide very limited functionality. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

The Konica-Minolta 5d, and 7d, both discontinued but available used on ebay and other places will work with your AF lenses, as well as all the sony alpha camera bodies. KM sold their camera business to sony, and most of the whole maxuum/alpha/dynax group of engineers went with the sale to Sony. I had a 7000, and an 8000i, and all my lenses are quite happy on the 7D I picked up a few months ago on ebay.
