I have a Pentax Super Program that I bought in 1984. I have 3 SMC Pentax-A lenses. They are 50mm f/1.7, 35-105mm f/3.5 and a 70-210mm f/4. I also have a Takumar-A 2X teleconverter and a Pentax AF200T flash
I was thinking of getting a 1stDS. It would be my first DSLR. How would these lenses go with the 1stDS? Would the teleconverter and flash work?
I am now using a Panasonic FZ20, Olympus C2100 UZI, and Olympus C5050.

Thanks in advance for any help or advice

They should all work with some slight custom settings tweaks. Not sure about the flash though.

You can always take all your gear in and ask the store if you can test them out on the ist body

pretty sure the flash will work . all the lens will work but probably not in auto focus. that's no problem w/me. i use my even older Mseries all the time. one good thing about the ist is that if a lens ever worked on a pentax camera, it'll work on the ist. even the 6x7 lenses. you've got about 40 years of choices.

The changes needed to work them are:

Custom settings menu:
use apeture ring: available
fi with s lens used : turn on (not sure if this one is needed)

On the body, set it to manual focus

Then use either Av mode or M and it should work. I cant help think im missing 1 thing though
