Takumar 50mm f1.4 for Pentax K100D Super

Hi There,

I am planning to buy the Pentax (M42) Asahi Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 50mm f1.4 lens for my Pentax K100D Super.

Is the lens compatible with the K100D Super? Do I need any special adaptor for the above lens? If yes, could you suggest me the adaptor name/model?

Yes, this lens and all M42 mount lenses are compatible with your camera with an adapter that will fit the M42 thread mount to a K mount such as the K100D, K10D, etc. I recommend buying only the Pentax branded adapter as some of the cheaper ones can be junk.

Enjoy the new lens!
