Will this lens work on the Pentax? I'm very interested if it does. Konica made some great glass and a 40mm f1.8 would be fun to use. Please let us know if it works.

Regards,

Ken

It's not a Pentax lens, it is a Konica lens. Because the Konica cameras have shorter register distances, there aren't even converters for this lens to Pentax mount.

However, it is a well-reputed lens for Konica shooters.

So to get this lens to work properly, it would have to be closer to the sensor? Hmm, maybe get some extension tubes and make a macro lens then

I guess I just acted too quickly.. damn LBA
