Vello LA-CEF-PK Overview

Make the most of your existing collection of Pentax K-mount glass with this Vello Lens Adapter that will allow you to mount these lenses to a Canon EF-S-mount camera. Precise construction makes it easy to attach these adapted lenses to your camera and keeps it secure during use. Infinity focus is guaranteed, ensuring that you get proper functionality our of all your optics. Additionally, the adapter is made from a durable zinc alloy and features a matte black finish on the inside to reduce the potential for glare and reflections that can negatively impact image quality.

Due to the design of Pentax K lenses, this adapter is suited for use only with Canon's APS-C-format DSLRs. Although the lens will fit physically, autofocus, automatic diaphragm (AE metering), and other functions dependent on communication between camera body and lens will be disrupted by the lens adapter. You will need to focus manually, and to set exposures manually or meter in aperture priority (stop-down) mode. Focusing to infinity is retained.

This adapter enables the use of Pentax K lenses on Canon EF-S-mount cameras, meaning you can now use your existing stable of lenses on your current camera. It is also very secure, holding the lens in place without any wobble sometimes associated with the adapting process.
Thanks to precise manufacturing, this adapter is guaranteed to provide infinity focus by placing the lens at the correct distance from the sensor. This allows you to make the most of your lenses and doesn't limit you from shooting distant subjects.
Made from a durable zinc alloy, this adapter will withstand many uses and won't wear or break in the way soft brass or cheap plastic would. Also, an internal matte black finish reduces reflections and glare, ensuring your images look sharp and contrasty.

Vello LA-CEF-PK Reviews

works great! Do you want to know how to remove it?

I had a bit of panic when I realized I didn't immediately see how to remove the adapter from the Pentax lens. On the underside of the adapter you push the metal spring towards the outside of the lens while you twist it off (the spring is shown on the B&H picture at the 2 o'clock position). This frees the lens from the bayonet tab.

It works!

Adapter gave me 4 more usable lenses

I ordered the adapter with the hope that I would be able to use the lenses (SMC Pentax-M) for my 1980’s era Pentax K1000 SLR on a used Cannon EOS 40D that I had just purchased. It took a few tries to get the adapter seated properly on the telephoto lens, but IT WORKED ! I promptly ordered 3 more adapters for the remaining lenses. NOW HERE”S THE CAVEAT. If you leave the adapter on the lens like I do; then you need order new end caps for the lenses (for when they are not in use). I have ordered the end caps based on the one for the EOS lens that came with the camera (it works).

My grandfather was into photography and videography as well, my brother held onto some of his old gear and was handed down to me, not knowing where to turn I came to B&H and found exactly what I was looking for!... this mount adapts to all of his old glass and for the price I couldn't be happier. It's as easy as lining up the Red dot on the Glass, to the Red dot on the Adapter and then to your camera, you guessed it the Red Dot for the Canon EF mount. easy enough and Vintage Glass is so cheap you can find it anywhere

Does a great job for the price

Exactly as the title states, it does the job. I’m excited to throw this on my rebel T5 and see what I can produce with some of my older K mount lenses. That being said, the thing doesn’t come with instructions. It is fairly self explanatory, twist on, hold the button, twist off, so on and so forth. One snag I ran into was taking the K mount lens off of the adapter. Maybe it was my lens, maybe it was this specific adapter, but I had to use pliers to force the lock pin out of the way so it could freely travel and let go of my lens. Maybe it needs to be broken in? Maybe I’m a fool? Who’s to say. One thing is for sure though; it does the job.

Have to use some care attaching and removing, but this simple adapter, does what it says it does... lets me use a manual Pentax zoom lens I bought 40 years ago on a modern camera. (The novelty alone is worth the price, but it's actually useful!)

This adapter lets my use my old manual Pentax lenses on my Canon DSLR. The only problem is that is is a little tricky to get the adapter off the lens.

Allowed me to fit a Pentax K 135 lens to a digital cannon xsi Rebel. There's about 1/8 play at the Pentax lens attachment side. Despite this, could use the lens in the camera's manual mode without any apparent problem.

Will this mount work with the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro?
Asked by: Henry
Doesn't BPCC6K use m43 mount? (According to Blackmagic, the Pocket Cinema Camera 4K is compatible with MFT-mount lenses, which is "extremely flexible and allows for different lens adapters so customers can also use PL, C, EF and other types of lenses from manufacturers such as Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Leica and even Panavision." In most other cases, a ...2 May 2018) Adaptors are basically just a physical connection Between a lens and a camera I think what you need is a Pentax K to m43 adaptor Not a PK to EFS So long as lens has an aperture ring, you'll be able to change exposure But has to be done manually

Does this get semi-permanently attached to the lense or can you easily switch between lenses?
Asked by: Samantha
This can be removed relatively easily. When you mount it to a lens it fits very firmly so though it is a bit more difficult to remove once "installed," it can still be removed.
