Thanks a lot for your comments jackassp and repaap. Some more shots with the 20-35 f/2,8 taken in Budapest and Praha two years ago. It is indeed my favourite lens for landscape and also some architecture shots , even tough 20 mm. itīs no so wide in APS-c.The only inconvenient iīve found out is the AF/MF clutch , which is difficult to move sometimes.
My neext target in Tokina ATX-pro should be 28-70 f/2,6-2,8 , but it is relly very rare in Pentax K-mount and expensive in e-bay Europe.

Cheers
I know what you mean with that clutch. It took me for a while to find out how to use it in anyway. Now I just put cam on manual focus and then turn the focusring so that it easilly moves to right place. And yea, 20 mm isn't really wide, but it is still enough for many place.

Or you could do what I did many times, forget the clutch was on manual focus, and try to auto-focus. The camera would make some very scary noises.

I found the AF on this lens to be very slow in general (I think because it's moving about 10 lbs of glass) and i had to change my shooting habits to accommodate. Nowadays, I have my k7 set to only focus when i hit the AF button, not when i halfway press the shutter.

I haven't done that yet It can be slow time to time, but with my K-7 it is almost on par with Kit-lens some times even faster Image quality is better IMO What I have noteced is that at widest position I have to use focuspoints and rcompose when I want something at edge of image in focus.

AT-X 35-200mm lens

Hey guys I have a Tokina AT-X 35-200mm lens and a Konica film camera but I think the motor in it is bad. Plus it's a film camera and I'd like to move up to a digital camera body and keep the lens I have now. So far I have only found one camera body that my lens will fit. It's the Pentax K10D camera. Any suggestions on other camera bodies that work?

couple of intriguing issues you raise here.
Is the lens a Pentax K mount ? If so it will fit on any Pentax K mount camera ever made.

I do not know anything about Konica...maybe they also used the K mount ?? (hopefully someone else will jump in with that knowlwdge...or a Google search)...IF so it should fit, but be sure to find out first....there are instances of people fitting a lens to camera with just a littlew bit of force...and then not being able to get it off.

Ok thanx Mallee Boy. How would I go about knowing if it is a K mount? As I said before I'm not a big time photographer so because of that I'm not to familiar with all the camera lingo.

whee, have to be careful with un identified mounts I can't help with that, cause I don't know, this I know.

Yeah I'm using that link and some of the photos are kind of hard to make out because the flash used blinds out some areas on the lenses. But from what I can tell, this my AT-X mount is pretty much the exact same as the fourth picture if I remember correctly. Picture 7's notch on the top lug is off center so I'm not sure if that would make a difference or not. Mine has the notch in the center of the top lug so I'm not sure if that means it would not stay locked into the body or what. Picture 12 is very similar but it's hard to tell where the notch is on the top lug on the bayonet. Is anyone familiar with that lens to offer some help on it?

Yeah it sure does. It's the AT-X Pro II 28-70 f/2.8, which is the Japan domestic version of the 2.6-2.8 lens. Not sure why they labelled the aperture differently, and if it even matters at all
