Hello,

I've found a very cheap second hand lens which I'd like to get for my Pentax *ist DS, but I'm not 100% sure how compatible it is. I've read up a few posts on what lenses work with the *ist DS, but I just want to double check to be 100% sure before I buy the lens

The lens in question is a Miranda 135mm f/2.8 with a Pentax PK bayonet mount.

Will this work with the *ist DS out of the box, or will I need an adaptor, or will it not work at all?

Many thanks in advance to anyone who replies

Cheers,

Edward Gladwin

And if it's a Manual focus, thd Ds is going to wait for you to switch your camera to MF before it lets you take the shot.

Thanks for the replies. I've bought it now, hopefully it should arrive on Monday and I'll be able to test it out.

I have no idea if it's a good lens or not, but as it was only £12 ($21 US) for what will effectively be a 202mm f/2.8 lens on my *ist DS, I think it's worth the risk

Thanks again,

Edward
