that's amazing, it would never have crossed my mind to mount a 110 lens onto a k-mount camera. Does it work solely as a macro lens?

I made it myself from a cameracap that I drilled a hole in and used a knife to cut the bayonetshape! I have a photo of it here. You can see photos with K-3 and the same combination here. PENTAX-110 70mm F2.8 Reviews - Auto 110 Prime Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database

Yes, more or less just a macro, You don't get infinity. But you can let your camera be om P and it automatically turns to AV! It's a fixed 2.8, so the camera just adjust the shutterspeed.


I have also mounted and old 67 lens with an adapter to M42, and a new adapter to K and then another adapter to Q, and it works! That's Pentax in a nutshell!

If using Live View and an adapter that lets you move the lens inside the mirror chamber you will be able to get infinity focus.

I see, good idea, but harder to make myself!

Thanks a lot for your nice comment, I'll pay for the bandage! I've tried to use some of the other lenses from the 110-series, but it's the 70mm that works best. I'll post more photos!

These are great and what a cleaver idea to give it a try. I'll second @Uncle Vanya's suggestion, I'd love to see what you might come up with in a reversed setup.

I've tried, and it can't get close enough, so that doesn't work.

As I answered Uncle Vanya, it doesn't work. The lens has a 49 med mer filtertread, so I've tried…


I also tried to put the lens inside the camerabody with liveview shooting, I got some more distance, but not infinity. The distance is to far from the sensor compare to film those days.

Maybe reversed will work on a mirrorless body with shorter registration distances.

Very nice pictures! How much of the sensor does it cover?
