    I have some old lenses, including a 70 - 300 zoom with a pentax fitting. What I want to know is, is it possible for this lens to be fitted somehow onto my canon digital?

    The lens has a silver fitting at the connection side, wich can be removed (the screws says so, haha) - can it be replaced somehow by a canon fitting?

    Would really feel bad if this lens had to lay in a drawer of my filing cabinet...

    Please help!?

    I just did a search on EBAY, USED "Pentax to Canon lens adapter" and came up with a few different adapters.

    Personally I have used adapters between OM lens and the Oly E-500 and had focusing problems... Maybe someone else has had some luck with adapters?
