| p.1 #1 · Pentax to EOS alt lens questions..Newbie content!! |
I will preface this by saying I am extremely new and ignorant to the alt lens world. I am very intrigued by all the countless possibilities.
With that being said I currently own a Canon XTI and 85mm 1.8 lens. I love this setup and purchased it strictly to capture the birth of my little one (low light) . As she is getting older I am starting to gain interest in more alternative shots and focal lengths. I've learned my father-in-law has a nice collection of older Pentax gear (80's I bel.) just sitting in his basement. Before I propose to borrow or possibly buy any one it from him I was curious how the process works.
I understand I need an adapter ring. I've seen 2 types..one with a chip and one without. I am still learning the photography thing and shoot 99% in AV mode. Will I still be able to do this with alt lenses?
Basically I'm curious what losses (auto) I can expect to encounter when experimenting with alternative glass.. (metering, wb, aperature)
Also I guess this is a Pentax question. What can I look for on his lenses to know if they are K mount or not.
Blessings and thanks for your time
