Some advice

I found some old lenes my Dad used to have with his Pentax, Just woundering if they would be good for my K100. I also have a Pentax from around 1958 with lens as well with screw mount.
Any info would be great.

Cheers Bill

Short answer: Yes.

Long answer: You'll need an adapter for the screw mount lenses.

Thanks for the quick reply. I was woundering if these lens are any good. Try to take shots indoor in a gym and the stock lens that came with the camera don't seen to cut it.

Thanks

that first lens should do you well in low light situations, f/2
2nd one is not bad either, f/2.8

fast lenses....

just get the proper mount adapters, and your set...

The 2 lens I have shown are bayonet mount. I do have a Takumar 1:2.2 55mm screw mount plus some more from that era. I also have a teleconverter that I can't get to work. I was playing with the other lens and found I could not get a f reading from the camera, Maybe just me . My Dads old pentax is a ME Super and I have a Nikon F3. My old Digital was a Fuji S7000.
I am new to this forum and enjoy all the info found on it, Sure has help me out THANKS

Cheers
Bill

You're not going to get an f-stop reading in the camera unless you use either modern lenses or the older lenses with an "A" setting on the aperture ring and have the ring set to "A". (The only way the lens can communicate information about itself to the camera body).

Don't despair, though, because they're still perfectly useable. You just have to learn the stop-down metering method using the AE-L button. Once you get the camera set up for it, it's a snap.
