    Hi Folks,

    Today a client gave me a Pentax SMC 28mm f2.8.

    Pentax is just about the only camera equipment I've not owned. I also notice we do not seem to have a image thread for this lens.

    Anyone know which adapter? K mount, PK mount.. something else?

    Anyone shooting this glass? Is it even worth the cost of the adapter???

    Have a sample image form your µ43?

    Thanks John

    Before I even bother to read. Is it a dog?

    No dog, Alan. No supermodel either, but no dog. Might be worth a cheap adaptor if you need the focal length.

    It's an SMC

    Hi John,

    It's an SMC. What mount is that at Rainbowimaging? K - PK something else?

    Any idea?

    ps. I already read through the link you sent me.. folks seem to like it.

    SMC = Super Multi Coated
    Pentak went from the M42 screwmount to bayonet-style K-mount. The Rainbowimaging K-PK should work if the 28 has a bayonet-style mount.

    I love my pentax-K bayonet fit Cosinon 50mm lens but I've not used a similar 28mm...

    Hi John,

    Just bought one from Rainbow.

    I guess I'll have to start my own image thread for the 28mm...

    Forst piece of Pentax kit I've ever owned.
