Hello from Sunny California!

I was trying to find a replacement Pentax SMC DA 50-200 ED WR when I found this outstanding site!! Maybe I will find needed answers to my many Pentax questions. One biggy is how to find the right adapters for lenses I bought. My main two body's are K2000. But also have 4 older film cameras and at last count 18 older lenses initially for film cameras. I'll be researching this web site for help. I am a photographer, wanting to go pro..encouraged by many, however self taught. I won a photo contest 25 years ago/now i can follow my passion since My kids are grown (all 6 of them) My terminology isn't what it should be but I'm here to learn. I take roughly 1000 photos or more per month, but on a really good shoot I can do that in a day. Photography is and always has been my hearts desire. Catching that shot, I live for that. -Carrie

Welcome aboard! What lenses do you need adapters for?

Adam, I have them in storage, (we're full time in a motorhome, so many things are in storage lol) I now plan to get them all out this weekend and register their serial numbers and be able to answer you better. Okay? Thank you! I'm VERY excited.

Great. If they're Pentax lenses, you probably won't need any adapters unless they're the older screwmount kind, in which case you need a simple adapter as detailed here:
