Hi All,

I have been using the same Asahi Pentax Spotmatic ever since I bought it new in Hong Kong in 1968. It still works fine. Had the shutter speed tested a short while ago and it is still within tolerances. I bought a full set of three lenses [all screw-in, of course], filters, and extension tubes. We am still use them all.

We have decided to go digital and have bought a current Nikon D3200. Of course it uses a twist-lock mounting system. I've bought two different adapters over the web, and neither works.

Anybody have thoughts on where I should look online? We shop EBay a lot.

Thanks for any help,

Welcome to Pentax Forums and sorry ... I know nothing here, so cannot give you any advice.

Try posting your question in a lens forum or the non-Pentax camera portion of the forums. J
