Found it!
You have to push the zoom ring toward to camera to put it in manual mode.
Now everything works! Aperture, auto-focus! Cool!

HI!
I finally received the Pentax PZ-20.
However, the lens has a "power zoom". It doesn't seem to work with my K-r and I don't see how I can zoom it manually.
Do you have any idea?
Thanks

Yes! I'm waiting for an order from ebay for a reversal ring.
But what about sticking 2 lens together? What do you suggest?

Hi,
I saw a used Pentax PZ-20 with 28-80 mm Pentax lens for sale.
Will this lens fit my K-r ?
What about Auto-Focus, exposure ?
Is this lens equipped with manual aperture ring?

Thanks!

Ok, but i mesured on the Vivitar 2800 153 volts !
About what others mesured on: Photo Strobe Trigger Voltages

On Cowboystudio web site it says:
"Other flash models with a trigger voltage of 12V or lower"

Thanks, it's a nice explanation.
I tried with my old k1000 50mm lens and it works as you said. The onboard flash blast indeed!
But, in the end, that's what I need.
Thanks again!

Will it work with my old Vivitar 2800? Matt's Classic Cameras: Vivitar 2800 flash
Is it required to use the Sync Wire Cable ?
I don't see any cable connection on the Kr

I'm experimenting with my Pentax K-r and an old Vivitar 2800 Thyrisitor Flash.
The flash is mounted on a Seagull Infrared Flash Remote Trigger and is set on manual.

I set the Kr on flash- wireless.
All I get is poor lighting when I compare with the internal Kr flash, same aperture, same speed.

Could it be the Vivitar that is too old?
Any idea?
Thanks

I've check my Vivitar 2800 flash. It produces about 160 volts.
I guess it's much to high for a Pentax Kr ?
Is there any way to use it with the Kr ?

Wow! Thanks guys!
That was a quick response and very clear.
I'm happy to know that he Kr stabilizes any lens!
Ash, when your taking about M lenses, you mean Manual lenses? Yes, my lens are manual lens.
I also have an old Vivitar flash synchronized at 1/60 secs. Do you think it will fit with the Kr?

Again, thanks very much for your responses.
I was interested with the Nikon D5100, but I guess the Pentax Kr will be my birthday gift ;-))

Hi,
I'm new to this forum and I've read that my old K1000 lens are supposed to fit to a new Pentax Kr dSLR.
I'm very interested with the Kr but the dealer tells me that the Kr doesn't have an exposure meter built-in.
So, I'm afraid that my K1000 lens would be useless.

What do you think?
Is there a way to use my old lens and manage to set the correct light exposure with a Kr ?
Thanks!
Nice forum!
