Operating manual for FA* 28-70 F2.8 ?

I just obtained a nice example of an FA* 28-70 F2.8 and I was wondering if anyone knew where I could download a copy of the manual for it?

Thanks in advance!

The lens has no individual manual AFAIK but when I ordered an FA lens, I received the smc PENTAX-FA INTERCHANGEABLE LENS OPERATING MANUAL which is right here from Pentax Imaging: http://www.pentaximaging.com/files/manual/FA_Lenses_112205.pdf

Thanks! I will also have a look at some power-zoom compatible film camera manuals.

One more question: Can the zoom clip and image tracking functions be made to work with a Pentax K10D?

No, these won't work on a dSLR camera. They only work on those film cameras which support powerzoom feature (Z1/Z1p/MZ-S ... )

On a dSLR only these features maintain:
1. power zoom (turn the zoom ring slightly, the lens will zoom by itself)
2. AF while zooming w/o pressing the shutter button (pretty nice 'cause you'd feel AF is much faster this way)

That's all you'd have when using these lenses on a dSLR body.

No, but you should seriously try a PZ1P film camera. They are only $100 used.
