Hello from Texas!

I'm new to the Pentax camera forum. Was a Contax owner but they did not survive far into the digital age. I am curious to learn more about Pentax cameras and lenses. Especially how the older lenses are compatible with the newer bodies. I look forward to learning from you all who are more experienced.

Welcome here. Any Pentax dSLR will marry nicely with any K-mount lens, as well as any with a K-mount lens adapter. The function of manual focus lenses is essentially the same as with the old film camera it went on (unless it's an M or K lens). Set aperture on the lens, focus and shoot. There are tutorials on this topic in the articles section of this forum. Enjoy it here.
