PENTAX k5

JUST LOOKING FOR A FAIRLY CHEAP K5 MANUAL TO BUY. WOULD LIKE TO GET A PENTEX RETRO WIDE CAMERA STRAP ALSO. JUST GOT A k5. SURE A LOT OF CAMERA AFTER USING A NIKON P520. NOT MUCH ELSE TO SAY. OWNED A CANON AE1 WAY BACK IN THE FILM DAYS.

welcome to the forum

you might want to read the " in depth review " done when the K 5 came out

Pentax K-5 Review - Introduction | PentaxForums.com Reviews

_____________________________

this chart shows how the K 5 works with the various Pentax lenses

it is the fourth line down on the left side of the chart

Pentax Lens Compatibility Chart
Copyright 2006-2016 Mosphotos.com. All rights reserved.

Pentax bayonet lenses labeled "SMC Pentax" are referred to as "K" lenses in the table below. Other Pentax bayonet lenses have the lens designation as a part of their name as in "SMC Pentax-FA."

Note that "star" lenses work like their "non-star" counterparts: DA* lenses work like DA lenses, FA* like FA, F* like F, A* like A, and M* like M.

Exceptions: FA and F "soft" lenses behave like M lenses in terms of metering.

and then there is this section of the forum might be of interest

any one have an idea of a source for that

personally I have switched to a cross body sling plus hand grip
