Hello everyone, this is my first post in ClubSNAP.

Just bought a Canon 350D from the Garage sales section. It's my first DSLR, in fact, it's the first camera i ever purchased lol.

I hope this new hobby can last me some time lol..

Yup, as mentioned in topic. I would like to ask if it's possible to use lenses from old PENTAX SLR on this CANON DSLR body with adaptor? would it be compatible? or cause damage?

My dad used to play with SLR long long ago and had quite a few unused lens for his PENTAX SLR. So i was thinking whether it could be put to use for the current CANON DSLR.


Boon. :p

pentax is K-mount right? maybe can check if there is an adapter that covert K-mount to EOS mount?

i remember there is apparently an universal adapter called "Adaptall" ... but not sure. :confused:

M42 mount (threaded mount type)?
or
K mount (don't know how to describe, but no mounting thread :) )

Try Tagotech
or do a ebay search.

I think you can try a search on this forum or google, as I've seen mention of this adapter before on the forums. If its M42 mount, its quite easy to get off ebay or tagotech.



Ps. You could have got a Pentax DSLR and saved the trouble ;)
