About Asahi Pentax K Mount Lenses
Because we can’t speak english
I am using DeepL translate, so it may be a strange sentence,
but I would like you to understand
Please stay with us for another installment of our lens mount series.
I will write about the Asahi Pentax K mount.
I will explain using lenses sell by our company Vintage Shop Japan Inc.
Asahi smc PENTAX-M 28mm f/2.8
Lenses for Asahi Pentax 35mm film cameras have replaced
the M42 mount with the K-mount lenses introduced here.
The M42 mount is a screw-in type, but the K mount is a
bayonet type, which is turned on the lens side for mounting.
M42 mount lenses (reference)
The difference can be clearly seen in the comparison
The screw-in type takes longer to install, but it is easy
to install by turning and fitting.
This K mount was also used for some lenses by Ricoh and others.
These are the K mounts for Asahi Pentax lenses.
We will continue to write our lens mount series.
