I just got two older lenses off eBay for $20. One is a sears, 80-200mm f:4 Macro/tele. I think I'm really going to like it as a cheap carry around lens.

The other is a Tokina 28-200mm f:3.5-5.3 Macro/tele. I think it looks like a well built lens, only it won't fit the camera. It's marked as a P/K-A R-P/K. it will fit my 2x tele converter with no problem but, not the camera. The only thing I can figure is the collar that sticks out next to the aperture flange is keeping it from seating squarely onto the camera mount. Anyone have any experience with something like this?:-?

Go here for that info. http://www.robertstech.com/flange.htm



It isn't hard at all to do either. I've done it many times.

What Dawg said. There have been a number of people around here who have bought lenses like this, cut down the flange and then used them without problem.

There's another mount that can cause problems - it has a pin that can drop into a hole it's not supposed to and get stuck on your camera. It can be modified also, but this is definitely not one you want to mount on your camera without modification.

Harriet is talking about a Ricoh mount. It will fit but it has a pin that can get stuck in the camera. If you get one like that cut the pin off and use the aperture ring to manually set the aperture! And thanks Paul for the confidence!! LOLOL
