I've used my Sigma 70-300 on the K1000 and it works just fine, using the lens's aperture ring. You can even use the 18-50 digital kit lens, but you'll get some vignetting from 18 up to about 25mm, which you can actually see in the viewfinder as you zoom in. The lens will shoot wide open, as you obviously can't adjust the aperture, so you'll need to compensate with shutter speeds and film speeds, but it can be done.
Cool. Thanks very much. I hadn't thought about popping the kit lens on, but that does sound like an intersting experiment.

Here I thought the DA lenses shot stopped all the way down on a K1000. Well, i suppose one can try.

Oops, you're absolutely right, Nick. The kit lens will, of course, shoot closed all the way down, not wide open. Don't know where my head was. Sorry, Jim, hope I didn't confuse you and thanks for the heads-up, Nick.
