The dealer doesn't know what he is talking about or he is trying to talk you into some other brand than Pentax, since the Tokina will work just fine on all D series DSLR's. Here is a photo with a 35 year old Pentax screw mount lens that I bought new in 1969 and as you can see it worked out very nicely.

Years ago my wife used to shoot nature shotson filmusing a Chinon slr with nice big Tokina APO K-mount all manual lense (70-200mm) .I wanted to surprise her with a new Pentax DSLR, and went tosee a dealer. Imagine my disappointment when the guy told me it was impossible tocombineist DL or DL2 with these old (only 20 years) manual bayonet lenses (camera will not even activate according to him).

So what's the truth here, do we need to throw a $2000 APO zoom in the trash?
