Greetings fffffjffffff,

It would really depend on the mount the previous lens has versus the mount on the new body. The advantage is that majority of the time you can utilize lenses on different bodies of slr cameras, as long as you stay within the same manufacturer.

What lens mount do you have on the lens? In other words, with what make film camera did you use the lens? A DSLR from the same company should be able to use the lens.

I have an old pentax film camera and bought a sigma 100-300mm f4.5-6.7 DL lens to go with it. I believe the lens is compatible with Pentax dslr. If I was to update to DSLR what other camera brands would it...

If I am not mistaken all lens can pretty much work with other cameras provide that the attachment is compatible. Having said that with the new SLR cameras with auto focus of the lens the lens itself has a motor and it would be difficult to attach it to a manual SLR. Save yourself the headache and if you can purchase same manufacturer for camera body and lens life would be wonderful. In the past I thought that I could save money and do the swap thing and it just became too much. In addition the new cameras that are out has wonderful features like anti vibration, smooth focusing and the sensors are just dynamite. Good Luck

Pentax ES2; do bayonet lens fit digital Pentax SLR?

Any Pentax K-mount lens will fit any Pentax DSLR. The DSLR will fire the shutter.  There is a menu setting (RTFM) which allows the use of older lenses, but you will lose some of the automation (again RTFM). Remember to allow that the effective focal length when using a "film" lens on a DSLR body goes up by 50%.
A standard 50mm lens becomes a 75mm equivalent, but stays a large aperture.

Can I buy an adapter to use the 28-200 mm Sigma Aspherical lens fitted to my Pentax MZ-50 film camera on my Canon EOS 1000d DSLR. Would it work?

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.

Can this lens be used with any new models of digital camera's, if so which models. For example Nikon or Canon digital models. thanks . Brendan

Hi Brendan
This can be used on any Pentax DSLR. That's one of the beauties of the Pentax system. Even screw-fit lenses from the 70s can be used on the very latest model cameras. Plus you get the bonus of image stabilisation thrown in the latest models.

Can Film Camera lenses and Flash be used for Digital Camera Body

If u used to have a Pentax camera, i would recommend you buying a Pentax DSLR, because Pentax film lenses still works on Pentax DSLR. I still use some of my prime lenses on my K10D.

I have a Quantaray 70-300 f1:4-5.6 LDOMacro. I have been using it with Minolta QTsi Maxxum SLR. I am looking into getting a Digital SLR that I can use my lens with. Is there one out there.

here is a link to an ebay search for minolta to canon eos adapter, they sell for just about every camera. i know it sucks, buying a new camera that wont work with your favorite lens, but i think you might be better served focusing (couldnt help myself) on camera features and pricing. i own a canon dslr and love it. sigma has a cool dslr. it has a three layer image sensor, with a removable on sensor ir filter. the ir filter thing is really cool.

Pentax K110D and Sigma 17-35mm F2.8-4 EX DG

The Penta K110D has a 1.5X crop factor so a 17mm lense would be the equivalent to 25.5mm (in 35mm standard), therefore may not give you a 103 angle view. You would not really notice that much difference between 17 and 18mm.
