Will this lens work with my camera


Hopefully somebody can help me out. I am interested in buying a second hand lens for my beloved Pentax SFXn. Unfortunatley I am not sure if the lens will work fullly on my SFXn.

the lens is a Pentax SMC FA J 75-300mm 1:4.5-5.8 Autofocus Lens.

Your asistance would be appreciated.

Yes, it should be able to work. You won't be able to use Av mode, however, as the lens lacks an aperture ring.

See our camera compatibility chart: The Pentax Camera Lens Compatibility Chart

And the reviews/specs of this lens: SMC Pentax-FA J 75-300mm F4.5-5.8 AL Reviews - Pentax Lens Reviews & Pentax Lens Database
