    Looks like Mz3 is K mount and not F mount, thus Nikkor lenses won't be reusable on the body IIC.

    Yeah, the adopter is available in the US, but my friends said that it's not very popular. In fact, there are adopters available for all mades of brands, eg Canon-Nikon, but they are not main-stream products, thus not easily available unless you have sources to get it for you. Major camera companies eg Nikon, Canon, definitely won't be making nor selling such adopters though.

    I just bought a Pentax mount Sigma 70-200mm F2.8 EX lens from a Nikon user. He used it with an adapter on his Nikon body (film) but he said there was no auto-focus. He had to MF. He sold it (like brand new lens) to me for less then S$850. Now I'm done with lens hunting ... at least for now

    Bought it from a guy in Guang Xi (a southern province of China). Sent to me in two days after I made the payment. Pity the weather is really very bad lately. I even didn't get out of my home in the past three days Not too much use for this lens in our small apartment.

    Will try it out when I get back to SG

    Cheers!
