    Uh-oh, do I see another anti-digital rant underway?

    Look, there are tons of wonderful and cheap Pentax K-mount lenses out there.
    Perhaps someone would like to use them on a DSLR.
    There's enough room for everyone here.

    Aron, I know you were just kidding, right?

    If I had spare cash I'd jump on this - a good DSLR that will take all my K mount lenses, they see very little use now with film (I mainly use MF & LF and have done for 26+ years).

    The Sales forum isn't the place for Digital/Analog bashing, a great many of us use both even though we are more committed to film.

    I use the K-x with a bunch of old film lenses. Works well. My current favorite the the 80s-vintage A 50/2.8 macro.
    Second is my new-to-me M* 300/4. Really nice early ED glass.

    I went through a traffic accident last night and things were a bit rough. Good luck with your sale.

    Hadn't planned to spend soon but that's tempting. I have K mount lenses and have toyed with the idea of getting a DSLR mainly for all the family stuff folks want and I just don't have time to do in the darkroom, at least not in less than a year. :wink:

    Roger, if you could see the results that this camera can produce with any Pentax K-Mount, or even screw-mount lens, you would be amazed. Please be aware that the effective focal length of your lenses will be magnified by 50%.
    I do have an almost new 18-55mm Pentax Auto-Focus Zoom kit lens, which becomes effectively a very lightweight 28-85mm walk-around zoom. I could add that to the package for $100. It is like new in the box. Two more selling points: the body is weatherproof (splash-proof) and it shoots fanatastic movies in the Live-View mode. If it doesn't sell here at APUG, then it will go on to eBay at a higher price.

    Anyway, the K-20 D's magnification factor is definitely 1.5X.
    I think Canon has a 1.6x on some of their cheaper DSLR's, which have slightly smaller sensors.
    Your questions about how to operate the camera with various lenses can best be answered by referring to the instruction book.
    I have photographed the specific pages from the instruction book that deal with this.
    Kindly refer to the attached photos for details.
    Contact me if you have any other questions.
    Good luck.
    Karl

    Weird - I got your first message by PM and replied that way, then the reply came again by both PM and publicly. I guess you're just pasting the same info, or is there some way to make it post both? In any event, thanks for the info. I'll PM you with anything else, just wanted to explain this odd looking exchange in the thread. :smile:
