Hi there, I've just re-energized my Pentax shooting with my first DSLR - a used K100D Super. I picked up a Tamron 28 - 200 and just won a Pentax M50 mm 1.7 on ebay. I've had an old Pentax film camera but used it less and less over the last decade or two. I'm REALLY enjoying the DSLR.

I'm leaving this week for a two week motorcycle vacation around the Great Lakes (around ALL of them) so I should get lot's of time to shoot.

I gotta say what a great site this is.... I've already picked up a lot of great info from you folks. Thanks. I was a bit freaked when I got the new camera but it's not as complicated as it first appeared.

With all the good things I heard in this forum as well as the database entries, I put a bid in on one of these on ebay and (to my surprise), I won. It's coming this week and I'm looking forward to taking my new camera and new lens on a two week motorcycle trip around the Great Lakes.

And, thanks for those used lens testing techniques. I'll use them.

I've tried both AF and MF.

And, yes, the lens still fits fine in the old Program Plus.....

Thanks, though....

I'm pulling my hair out here and I hope there's someone who can help me get this working..

I just bought a K100D Super, in part because I thought I could use the zoom lens that I used to us on my old Pentax Program Plus (film SLR). The lens is a Sigma 35-70mm.

I line up the red dots and I can insert the lens in the mount but it only rotates about half way and doesn't click or lock. I've check the spec's again and, as far I can tell, this lens should fit this camera.

If anyone had suggestions, I'd really appreciate it.

I'm just getting into d-SLR's. I have (and love) an old Pentax Program Plus but have just picked up a K100d Super. I'm hoping to be able to use some of my old lenses.

I bicycle and motorcycle. I go to work when it's required. I'm looking forward to getting hooked on photo'ing again.
