Digital SLR Lens Query
Apr 15th, 2012 at 6:52pm
Print Post  
I have a Ricoh SLR - pre-digital - with a selection of lenses , and have access to a mates Canon 350D digital SLR in the US when I visit him later in the year. The Canon has a 18-55mm lens that all the reviews suggest is a mediocre lens at best , so heres the question.

Is it possible to fit the Ricoh lens to a Canon camera? Do I need an adapter ring maybe , or is it just a no-go?

Or should I just wander along to my local camera club and ask someone there?

no go sorry bro

Ricoh SLR had the Pentax K bayonet mount, unless you got one of the later A/F models which I recall had their own mount
No way can fit.

There are plenty used lenses available to fit the Canon if you are after a cheap tele lens
