Re: pentax K1000 camera

Unfortunatly I am in Brazil and not aware on repair services in Mumbai. BUT addressing your question, YES all Pentax mount (bayonet) will fit in K1000. As a matter of fact, this is an extremely reliable and simple camera, assuming you are skillful in manual mode shooting. In the "used" market you can find a lot of bargains suitable to the K1000. Try some oldies (but goldies) Takumar lens.

Will the lenses I am using on my old school Pentax PZ1 SLR camera fit on Pentax digital cameras?

If the lenses are PK / PKA bayonet fitting, yes - if they are autofocus as well, this is a bonus, as that too should work. If they are M42 screw-fit, then you'll need an adapter, and all functions (zoom, focus, exposure) will be strictly manual.

Yes, if it is a K style bayonet, it will work - Pentax allows any K mounted lens to work with all their cameras from the K1000 from 1976 to the present... BUT - don't expect auto anything... including zoom or metering... but it should allow you to use it at least... Assuming the Lens is a K mounted lens... (you can't use it if it is a Nikon F or AI style, or Canon, or Minolta, which all use a bayonet style mount...)

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.

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.

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.

How do I know what size lenses to look for?

Hi rlopez117,

Congratulations on the aquisition of such a great vintage camera!

Pentax cameras use a mount known as M42. This means it is a 42 millimeter diamater. You may also find this referred to as the Pentax mount, as Pentax (Asahi Optical) made this popular in the United States. With any camera, any lens you purchase should match the mount of the camera in order to be used together.

Thank you,
Go Ahead. Use Us.
