Question about Pentax Camera Lenses

35mm Pantex Camera model # ME

My aunt just gave me her 35mm Pantex Camera, she got it back in 1976, I have always wanted a camera like the one she just gave me, and now I have one. Now she has lots of extra stuff with it, now my question is, she game me a macro zoom lens, which was never used, but what does it mean when it says 150-750mm, I know that mm means milameter. but what does 150-750 mean? I'm going to take some photography courses at my local college...

Re: 35mm Pantex Camera model # ME

That's the focal length of the lens. If there're two numbers, then the lens is either a zoom or a "vari-focal" lens, meaning the lens can change focal length from one end to the other. In this case, the lens can change its focal length from 150mm to 750mm, either by turning a ring or pushing/pulling a ring.

BTW I wasn't aware Pentax had a zoom that long. Are you sure it's not 75-150?

I have a canon Zoom FD 70-210mm 1:4 lens off a SLR camera. Will it work with digital cameras?

No Canon FD lenses cannot be used on Canon EOS system cameras (all autofocus Canons except for the ancient and obsolete Canon T-series 35mm SLR's from the 1980's use the EOS mount).

There are very few cameras which can take them (35mm or digital) without some kind of expensive mounting converter which would include corrective optics.

If in good condition though it's a great lens and can be used on plenty of old Canon classic 35mm SLR models such as the AE1, AT-1 , AV-1 and Canon T-series, all of which are cheap//free and readily available.

Yes, it's suitable for 35mm EOS mount Canons and all digital models. If the digital SLR has an APS-C sensor then the image will be cropped and will give the same viewing angles as a 112-480mm on a 35mm camera.

Absolutely. Pentax only guarantee compatibility of their cameras with their own lenses as long as they're contemporary to the model you're using.

Other manufacturers make lenses which will physically fit your camera, but now that all communication between the body and lens is electronic they're not always fully compatible especially as the camera manufacturer often changes the technical specifications.

Check with Tamron: it's not unusual to have to send your lens back for an update to ensure compatibility with the latest models.

Camera repair for 35mm not digital

Hey Kimmie841,
There are plenty of places that repair 35mm film cameras. You could bring it to a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store and they could send it out for service, or you could look in your local yellow pages under camera repair and there usually are some listings. Another option is contacting the manufacturer and they usually have a list of authorized service technicians in your area that you could bring it to. I hope this helps!

Go Ahead. Use Us.

QUANTARAY FOR MINOLTA AF 70-300MM compatibility

Usually mounts are unique to a camera manufacturer. There are exceptions. Sony has the Alpha; lenses for the Konica-Minolta are the same mount. Your AF (autofocus) lens will work on it. You might also consider picking up a Konica Minolta 5D or 7D.....they're no longer made and hence are cheaply had.

The MD and Rokkor lenses won't work on the Sony Alpha.
