Hi - New K7 plus old K mount lenses


I'm a long time Pentax user, from the old Spotmatic II, upgraded to MX in the early eighties (which I liked) and bought a couple of more cameras, MG, etc.

Built up a collection of lenses over the years and did not want to get rid of them so checked that the lenses were compatible before I took the plunge and went digital.

Recently bought the K7 and seem to be struggling to get the fisheye, 17mm F4 (old K mount lense) to work with the camera.

Perhaps the settings not right? Any hints?

Seems that the angle of view changes as well.

Here the guide to getting your lens to work:

On APS-C, it's only going to be a lot less wide than on film, but probably still plenty wide!
