Question on Lens with K10D

Would a Pentax 135 3.5 SMC in Excelllent condition be a good lens for my K10D? Just found this lens and wondered.

Also how about a Pentax 50 2 SMC-M in Excellent condition?

Also what about a takamura screw mount? and what would be needed to hook it up to the K10D

Thanks for any responses.

With manual focus lenses, you will have to dig in the menus to allow these lenses to work. You can find it in your manual, or search in this forum.

I've used the Pentax SMC-M 135/3.5 with my K100D with no problems. I'd imagine it would work just as well on your camera.

I've also tried the 50mm you mentioned in a store with the K10D. It's a nice combination, though a little long for tight rooms. I have a 50/1.7 - it is one of my favourites.

In order to use a screw mount lens, you will need to get a screw mount adapter. Get the genuine Pentax part, as I've hear of focus problems (cannot get infinity) with third-party parts.

Happy shooting.
