Hey matty reps,
I found one wide angle lens attachment that should work for your camera and I have attached a link to it so you can see what you think. I have little experience with these types of lens attachments, and have heard they're not nearly as good as having a wide angle/fisheye lens that mounts directly to the camera. If you don't mind losing autofocus you can usually find very cheap manual focus lens that are very high quality lenses for sale at some local camera shops. I hope this helps!

Own DSLR camera would like to know the single best lens for the DSLR?


"Best" lens depends on several things:

1. What kind of pictures do you intend to take?
2. Do you mind a heavy leans? Some are 10 pounds or more.
3. Your budget.

The "standard kit lens" that most come with is perfectly good for general photography. If you want to take architectural pictures, you'll need something different. If you want wide landscapes, you will need a wide angle, and if you want wildlife/bird pictures, you'll want a telephoto lens. It all really depends on what you intend to do...

For example, I have a very wide lens I use for interior architectural pictures, medium telephoto for portraits, and a variety of long to very long telephotos for wildlife pictures...

Yes, there are some extreme zoom lenses that cover 'normal" to "very long" telephoto. They're expensive, not especially sharp, and very heavy. Everything is a compromise.

I want to put a new lens on called "wide angle lens" but am not sure how to fit it onto the camara


Well, I'm sure you figured it out by now, but typically there is a small red dot on the lens, near the connecting ring... This lines up with a similar dot on the camera. There is only one way the lens will go on, and still have auto-focus and other functions be able to be controlled by the camera.

Sometimes, when someone is handling a lens, it is possible to move the lock ring. This will keep the lens from engaging at all, with the camera. Try that area.

I recently dropped my Pentax K1000....oops! The only damage I noticed was a small dent in the metal side of the lens....hardly even noticeable. But now, the focus isn't working, and the light meter doesn't...


Unfortunately, this is a serious problem.

If the focus ring is not working then there is serious damage inside the lens. This cannot be repaired easily and must be taken in for repair.

As for the light meter, this is slightly more worrying as it is damage inside the body. It could be something as simple as the battery contact. But it could also be somehting more serious.

I would recommend taking it for repair.

If repair turns out to be too expensive I suggest you have a look on ebay. Pentax cameras are available with a wide range of prices and so are compatible lenses. A good upgrade would be a Pentax MX or even an LX if you can afford it. The ME super is also an excellent model if you want soemthing simpler.

What size lens do i need for this camera?


You just need any Minolta AF mount lens. Sony Alpha lenses also physically fit as Sony inherited the Minolta lens mount when they bought the company, but as they are a later development not all will be electronically compatible.

The size of the lens depends upon the focal length of the lens and you choose that according to how wide a field of view you desire. Typical lenses are 28 and 35mm wide angles, 50mm "standard" (approximately the same perspective of how the human eyeball sees images), 70 to 90mm short telephoto lenses (a narrower perspective and very good for portraits) and higher numbers are narrower perspective telephoto lenses for viewing increasingly distant objects. In practice, the available lenses will be incorporated into zoom lenses which incorporate a seamless range of focal lengths within one single model. The word "zoom" reflects the fact that you can seamlessly change from say 28mm wide angle through to 80mm short telephoto and every single setting between them

Any zoom which starts at less than 50mm and finishes in the short telephoto range is called a standard zoom and is the lens that most autofocus cameras were supplied with. The next most common size will be something like a 70-200mm which is a telephoto zoom (or tele zoom) and takes you from a portrait lens to a genuine 5x magnification telephoto. You may also find so-called "super zooms" which do the whole job on one, for example 28-200mm. but the more jobs a single lens tries to do, the bigger and bulkier it becomes and the image quality deteriorates due to poorer contrast and greater image distortion at each end of the zoom range.

This is not an exhaustive answer, as there are entire books on the subject, but hopefully it's been of help to you.

Will the lenses for a film camera (Canon EOS Rebel) fit a new digital body? Thanks.


Yes the Canon EOS lenses from film bodies will fit and work well on Canon digital bodies.
Depending on the Canon digital body you select the lens may have a 1.6 x factor. Meaning the focal length of the film lens will become a longer focal length. For an example Canon's 50mm f1.8 lens on the APS size digital sensor will translate to an 80mm equivalent. This is great for most people but, getting a good wide angle lens is a bit of a challenge, there has to be a tread off somewhere. There are Canon full frame cameras that this factor doesn't apply, for example a Canon 5D.

What size lens fits a Minolta Maxxum 3xi??


It depends entirely upon what you're after and the type of photography you wish to undertake.

Any Minolta AF mount lens will fit. 28mm is a standard wide angle, 50mm is a standard lens with a field of view approximately the same as the human eye, 80mm is a slight telephoto and for distant subjects 200mm is a long telephoto. Some lenses combine a few into one, they're called zoom lenses and will typically be something like 35-70mm, or 70-200mm. The measurements relate to the focal length of the lens, but generally the larger the number the longer the lens sticks out at the front. Zoom lenses are bulkier and heavier than fixed focal length lenses, but they're also the most commonly used types these days.

I lost the lens cap for my wide angle lens on my Maxxum 7000. Are they available and if so, where can I get one?


I don't know which wideangle lens you have, but there most likely is a number giving the the size of the thread in front of the lens. If there isn't, you can measure it with a ruler marked in millimeters. Either way, simply order a lens cap of that size online or buy it at a good camera store. If you can't find the size, simply take the lens with you to a camera store and find a lens cap that fits. You don't need to find a specific brand, about the only thing that matters is the size. Unless, that is, you care a whole lot about the styling...

Changing lens


Your Nikon is a SLR which stands for single lens reflex. The reflex part is the way the mirror that lets you look through the lens to frame the picture flips up to let the light go straight to the film. You can change the lens half way through the film roll because the mirror is down while you change the film and blocks light from getting to the film, just as it blocks the light until you push the shutter button. Have fun with your 'new' camera! I use an even older style Nikon FE2. I like my Nikon 55mm macro lens but your newer camera takes autofocus lenses so you'll need advice from someone else for that.
