    Lens Adapter Canon - AF Camera Bodies to Pentax Lens Screw Mount is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 35.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the research I contacted your help desk and they gave me the information on this adapter. It is great, I can now use the old Pentax screw mount lenses that were collecting dust. Granted, it takes a bit of work to get the lenses to get great pictures, but to use a lens that I have owned for over 25 years is great, brings back a lot of memories, and gives me more lenses than I had before. Also, your personnel were fantastic, they were helpful and extremely knowledegable.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost what I thought it would be I bought this adaptor to be able to fit my old Spotmatic F lenses on my new Canon EOS Xs camera. It works perfectly and you just have to set the camera on Manual mode or Av mode (this last one is better). Only problem is that since the camera's viewfinder has no manual focusing aids it's harder to get the correct focusing on my pictures, but this is a problem of the camera not of the adapter that I'm sure I'll overcome with practice. In a nutshell the exposure is no problem; the focusing is what takes more time to get the hold of.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from For manual aperture lenses only I purchased the Bowers screw mount to use old Mamiya, Tamron, and Tokina screw mount lenses on my 5D mk II. The product is fine and does what it says but much of the convenience of shooting digitally is thrown out the window and the experience will be akin to shooting with film. The most critical thing to know is that your lenses must have manual aperture control or they will shoot wide open by default and you will have no depth of field control. To be sure, remove the lens from the camera and turn the aperture ring. If you see it open and close, you're good. 1) QUALITY: The Bower adapter is a durable well- machined item. 2) EXPOSURE CONTROL: Still Mode: No in-camera metering. Video Mode: Auto exposure works normally (5D Mk II). WORKAROUND: If you are shooting digitally, of course you can simply snap exposure tests or rely on a handheld meter. 3) INACCURATE LIVEVIEW: The DSLR live view will be inaccurate and appear underexposed in many circumstances so you will depend on the viewfinder for focus and composition. WORKAROUND: If you have a video function on your DSLR, you can also hit record at which point the 5D II, for instance, will correct the exposure and you can compose. Useful in low light situations. You can then just trash the video clip. 4) NO DEPTH OF FIELD CONTROL WITHOUT MANUAL APERTURE CONTROL ON LENS: My Mamiya lens has this switch so the aperture is controllable on the lens, my other two lenses do not and so they always expose wide open. If you don't have this feature on your screw mount lenses then they may be of little use on your Canon, unless you always like to shoot wide open.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from does exactly what it says it does I can now use my old manual spotmatic lenses on my new Canon 5D. One thing I hadn't thought about when I bought it, was that I wouldn't be able to use the in-camera light meter as it has no way to know what f/stop my lens is in. So, in addition to using a manual lens, I am now using a manual (hand-held) light meter all with a full-frame digital sensor. In my opinion, it's a perfect marriage of the old and the new.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great I expected to adapt my old Pentax lenses to my new Canon EOS Rebel and that is exactly what this does. I am a little disappointed at the difficulty involved in removing the adapter from my camera when I want to switch back to my Canon lenses, but managed to adapt paperclip tool to accomplish the task. I would recommend this to anybody who has some old screw mount (Pentax type) lenses from their old film SLR and can't figure out what to do with them. This adapter gives new life to some old favorite lenses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly as described I recently acquired a box of very nice old Pentax lenses. This adapter works perfectly to attach them to my EOS 5D. Of course I have to shoot manually, but that just goes with the territory for these old lenses. Some reviewers mention the adapter gets stuck on the lens or camera body, but that has not been a problem for me. If it was, I would try a little judicious polishing on the mating surfaces of the adaptor. I'm sure that would fix the problem. It would be better to fit too tight, rather than too loose. My lenses fit to the camera very securely, with absolutely no play.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A second life to your old lenses This adapter allowed me to use my 70's lenses from my Fujica ST701 camera: Praktica srew mount 42 mm diameter by 1 mm Pitch thread. I can now use my old Bushnell 70-220 1:3.5 Macro lens on Canon Rebel XTi easily. Just screw on the adapter on the old lenses and lock them in the Canon body. To remove the lens and adapter push the release button and twist as your normal lenses. Unfortunately the first few trials, I had to remember that my old lenses are not auto-focus. It works well in Av and M modes. I would have bought this adapter sooner had I known.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great way to load up on cheap lenses I absolutely LOVE this adapter. Being new to the hobby and not having the disposable income to get my hands on some of the fancier, more expensive lenses, this lets me use some of the older lenses that are kicking around my parent's house and opens up a world of quirky effects and possibilities. Very pleased with the results so far. Just remember that you will be shooting wide open most of the time.
