Pentax Camera / lens compatibility chart

  1. here's something many may find useful when looking at lens and camera compatibility. http://www.mosphotos.com/PentaxLensCompatibility.htm
     
  2. so, why is it claiming that an AF lens can't be used on a zx-30 body...?
     
  3. I don't own one of the 'crippled' KAF bodies so the answer is better left to others. But you may want to check the following. There are many limitations with this mount. http://www.bdimitrov.de/kmp/technology/K-mount/crippled.html
     
  4. I don't know much about these "AF" lenses, but I suspect these were the short-lived, first implementation of AF. The vast majority of Pentax autofocus lenses are F, FA, FA-J, D-FA, and DA.
     
  5. The AF lenses are early autofocus lenses compatible with the ME F autofocus camera (there's only one model, a 35-70 f2.8 zoom). They do not have an automatic aperture setting, and so have most in common with 'M' lenses, which also cannot be used with the cheaper ZX/MZ cameras. They only provide autofocus with the ME F body, I believe.
