Lens question????

I have a "K-1000", and "Super Program" film cameras, will a Pentax-AF lens work on these cameras? If it will work, will the "Super Program" still work automatically set the aperture with this lens? Thanks in advance for any help you can give!

Hi Bruce

Since those two cameras are manual cameras, the lens will work minus the auto focus. I don't have the Super Program camera but according to Bojidar's Pentax website (Pentax A-Series Film Bodies, it is a KA mount so I assume you can change the aperture on the body (by setting the aperture ring to 'A' position).

As long as the lens has an aperture ring(any F or FA lens), it will work on the Super Program the same way an A lens works.

Thanks guys, looking to purchase a 300mm or larger lens soon, and needed to know what lenses will and won't work with my cameras.

ALL pentax lenses will work with certain restrictions due to the lens itself.
