Here are some of the different screw-mount lenses that Pentax made in the '60's and '70's.  I have provided technical information in addition to the photos of the lenses, as well as photos made with the lenses.  There are also a number of 3rd-party lenses that might be interesting.  Enjoy!

10/21/09 - Use of Super-Multi-Coated Takumar lenses with Canon EOS 5D Mark II digital SLR and electronic lens adapter with focus assist.

In an effort to make greater use of these wonderful lenses, I have purchased a new digital camera (non-Pentax) and lens mount adapter, to enable the use of these lenses.

I have posted a detailed write-up of this acquisition here, describing my original requirements and considerations, the equipment purchased, and a list of Asahi Pentax lenses (nearly all) compatible with the new camera.  Read more here.

I am in process of updating the lens write-up pages with images made with this new digital SLR and the corresponding Takumar lens.  I am very pleased with this "marriage" and see a new life for these beautiful vintage lenses!
