A K10D and a bunch of barely cooperative lenses

Greetings from Texas. I was given a K10D by a relative over a year ago and I've had a lot of fun with my one Sigma 18-50mm f2.8 lens that actually fits on my camera. My father-in-law handed down all of his old manual gear at the same time (as a "hey, why not!" sort of thing) but unfortunately he was using Konicas (Autoreflex TC and FS-1). I can get the Hexanons (and the Soligors with the adapter I'd imagine, although I haven't tried) onto the K10D, but only very precariously as they don't lock in. Too much fiddling with the focus and the lens comes off, so I'm afraid to take my hand off it. Is there any fix for that?

Inventory so far:
- Pentax K10D
- Sigma DC 18-50mm f2.8
- Soligor Tele-Auto 200mm f3.5
- Soligor Wide-Auto 23mm f3.5
- Konica Osawa MC4 2x Tele Converter
- Hexanon AR 40mm f1.8
- Hexanon AR 50mm f1.4

I mostly take pictures of cats these days, since my friends groan every time I whip out my camera.

Welcome to the forum, cats can sometimes make better friends, providing we're not talking lions and tigers here.

Nope, just regular house cats. Maybe I will move up to neighborhood cats if I can figure how to get that telephoto lens on my camera without breaking it. :T
