This camera uses a pentax K type lens mount. just about any camera store will have one, of course ricoh lenses too, or try ebay for a used one.

Lite meter don't work I bought it off internet seller said it was in exl.cond.it looks that's all


The built-in through-the-lens CdS exposure metering system of your KR-5 SUPER operates on power activated by two 1.5V SR-44 silver oxide batteries, which are supplied together with your camera. Have you changed the battery? Also, many of these older cameras the light meters are not very good. I would suggest getting one of the free smartphone light meter apps.

Ricoh kr 5 super ii mirror


There are some wide angle lenses that will hit the mirror and not allow it to move correctly. Wide angle lenses go further back on the film plane, so they can't be used with that camera. Try a Pentax.

The mirror only returns when lens removal, it appears that on his return back it locks when the lens is at infinity. Maybe problem whith the mirror glue???


Sounds like the back of the lens may be sticking too far into the mirror box and interfering with the mirror travel. There are also a couple of bumpers on the bottom of the mirror box, and the plastic has become soft and breaks off, allowing too much travel for the levers. Try another lens first. If it does it with all lenses then you will have to search out a repair facility that still does something so old.

What kind of lenses should I buy for my new Pentax Kr? People tell me to buy new digital lenses. What is the real scoop on lenses for this camera?


Newer lenses tend to be sharper and lighter than older lenses, and with better optical characteristics. Some digital-only lenses are also designed for the smaller sensors of some digital cameras, allowing for further reductions in size and weight. In general, lenses designed for film cameras will work with digital cameras.

If you already have Pentax-mount lenses, by all means continuing using them if you're satisfied with the results.

Film advance lever stuck


The shutter parts are most likely broken. That is usually the tell-tale sign of a broken camera, not advancing. Repairs for film cameras are very expensive and if parts are needed, it may be impossible for a 20+ year old camera. My suggestion is to find a replacement film camera system. Your Ricoh lenses will fit on a Pentax camera, but not work in Auto Mode. Prices of used Pentax cameras with built in motor drives are around $100. Check on line cameras stores. They have lots of use cameras/lense. A lens to use on that is another $75 or so. Only Nikon and Canon make new film cameras anymore. If you want an indestructable K-mount, find a Pentax K1000. Many lenses are available but no motor drive nor auto exposure on that model.
