Sorry, no. If it fit onto a Pentax camera then the lens has a Pentax mount. The Nikon (I assume you mean the D80 digital camera, or perhaps the N80 film camera) has a Nikon mount. Since the Nikon mount has a deeper flange distance than the Pentax mount, there are no adapters available to allow you to fit a Pentax-mount lens onto a Nikon camera.

No se como un lente puede romper el anclaje al cuerpo de la camara, pero si en verdad se rompio, deberia llevarla a una tienda fotografica para que la arreglen. Le queda tiempe en la garantia?

SOURCE: Can I buy an adapter to use the 28-200 mm Sigma

You may be able to find an adaptor, but I doubt it and you would lose many functions in any case. It could end up that the lens will not auto focus or that it would not meter properly. These adaptors are made so that specialty lenses (such as fisheye or shift lenses) can be mounted on cameras when needed. Your 28-200 would probably be cheaper to by in an EOS mount.

SOURCE: Currently I have a Nikon F65 non-digital camera

If anything, you will gain image quality because the sensor on the D5000 is smaller than a frame of 35mm film. Thus you will only be using the central portion of the lens. On the D5000, the 28-80mm lens will act as a 42-120mm would on the F65.

However, you will lose autofocus capability. The D5000 does not have a focus motor in the body, relying on the lens having the motor, and neither version of the 28-80mm lens has a focus motor. The lowest-end Nikon dSLR with a focus motor is the D90.

Which lens fit nikon d5001


To the best of my knowledge, most, if not all, Sigma lenses fit most cameras that use interchangeable lenses with the appropriate adapter. As I recall, Sigma uses a bayonet mount and adapters are available for many name brand cameras. For example, I have a Nikon and my Sigma 600mm came with an adapter for a Canon. All I had to do was order a Nikon adapter. If you're not sure, you might want to check with a local camera store to confirm which adapter you need.

Does Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG Macro Telephoto Zoom Lens fit canon eos rebel


Sigma makes their lenses with a variety of camera mounts. If you get the lens with a Canon mount then yes, it will fit any EOS Rebel camera body. A lens with a Pentax mount, for example, will not fit a Canon camera.

I have a sigma 600mm k mount lens that I would like to use on a nikon 3100, is there a adapter available?


No. The Nikon F mount has a longer flange focal length than the Pentax K. What this means is that a lens adapter to fit a K mount lens onto a F mount body would have to have a negative thickness, which is a bit difficult to build with current technology.
Adapters going the other way are possible and available.

I have about three lenses that are made by Sigma and are meant to be used on the Sigma SD-14 camera. I would like to know if there's anyway to convert them so that they can be used on the Nikon D-200...


The conversion is not realistically possible, sorry. The SA mount is physically the same as a Pentax K mount but even then has a different flange distance, so even conversion to Pentax would be difficult. The electronics will all be custom made to suit Sigma SA standards.

Even if you had the machine shop skills and technical wizardry needed to convert to a Nikon AF mount, it's unlikely that the lenses would ever be fully compatible and they would be unlikely to work on subsequent Nikon bodies.

It will be cheaper and far more practical to sell what you have "as is" and use the funds towards the purchase of good used Nikon branded lenses.

Will a Sigma DL Macro Super 70-300mm 1:4-5.6 Lens fit my Nikon D80?


All after market lenses are specifically designed for a brand of camera. They are for Nikon, Cannon, Minolta etc.. They can not be cross branded just as you could not use a Nikon made lens on a Pentax.

Will Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DL fit a canon D60


Sigma make this lens with different mountings (i.e. Canon, Nikon, Sony/Minolta, Pentax and Sigma). So, if you get this lens with the Canon mounting - yes it'll work with your D60. Any other mounting will not fit on your camera. Hope that helps

Minolta to Nikon --Switching to Digital -- LENSE problems


Mirror lenses have no aperture nor AF, so they mount via a T mount. A $30 item that screws on the end of a mirror lens that fits your camera. A mirror lens has it's physical likes and dislikes against a glass 500mm. A glass 500mm will give a better image if you can stop down to F8 F16. Then you have shutter speeds to consider and those lenses are usually connected to the camera's contacts. So they can be specific to a single body. There are older Tamron lenses that take Adaptall mounts, they are old and hard to find. But they solved the multiple body problems for "auto" program lenses. None had AF, when AF camera around, we were back to individual lenses per body.
