I have a similar mount vivitar. I cannot get it on my k10 or zx-10. Any help or sites would be greatly appreciated.

I'm guessing the guard for the aperture pin is longer than necessary and that is preventing the lens from mounting on your Pentax camera. The 28-90 I'm selling doesn't have this problem, but I've heard that several older Vivitar's do have this issue. You should be able to trim off the excess portion of the guard with a hacksaw. Here's one person's "how-to". Vivitar K mount lens with Pentax digital SLR k100d

Hope that helps,

I don't know if this is just a repeat of the other forum so i'll ask the question anyway. Do any of the lenses that you have fit the zx-30?
