Slr lenses on Dslr bodies

Hey everybody,

New guy here and I have a question.

Is it possible to use the lens off of my K1000 (M-50) on my K10D? I can get on but it won't take any pictures.

Thanks

welcome to the forum! it should work fine.
you need to enable the aperture ring in the custom menu. then go to manual mode and press the Green Button. also helps to enable the focus indicator.

check this out, but for the K100D, should be similar, except use the Green Button instead of AE-L
