old manual long lenses

Hi all,
I'm new to the world of Pentax, although returning after many years since my first SLR was an ME Super.

I have a collection of old Nikon manual lenses and I'm wondering if there are equivalents for a couple of them in the Pentax world.

Is there anything like the Vivitar 100-600mm?


thanks,
Scott

Hi Scott,

Welcome to the forum. Check the lens review database under K, M and A series lens. It is quite comprehensive.

Vivitar has two manual super zooms, the 120-600 or Series 1 100-500 that they made for various mounts including Nikon AI and Pentax KA

Old Nikon mount Vivitars can most likely be easily converted to K mount preset. They often work as-is.
