Overview: The Pentax Adapter Q for K Mount Lens allows you to attach
Pentax K-mount lenses onto the Pentax Q digital cameras, such as the Q and Q10.
Note: You must update the firmware on your Pentax Q camera to
Version 1.02 or later before using the adapter.
Compatibility: The adapter's front mount is compatible with
all Pentax K-mount lenses. The adapter's rear mount works with the
Q series camera body only.
Performance: When the Adapter Q for K Mount Lens is mounted,
the effective focal length of your lenses is multiplied by approximately 5.5x
(35mm format equivalent). For example, a 55mm lens will have a focal length of
approximately 300mm when used with this adapter. The adapter is compatible with
in-camera Shake Reduction by inputting the focal length of the mounted lens. The
focus mode is fixed at Manual when using the adapter.
Shutter Speed: The adapter has a built-in mechanical shutter
to prevent rolling shutter distortion. The adapter's shutter speed can be set
between 1/1000 to 30 seconds.
Aperture: The aperture value can be set with either the lens
or the adapter, depending upon the K-mount lens being used. The adapter has an
aperture ring that allows you to set the aperture value on lenses without an
aperture ring. For lenses with an aperture ring, you can set the value on the
Optional Tripod Mount: If using the adapter with a large,
heavy lens, you can attach the optional Pentax Tripod Mount for DA*300mm. There
are two receptacles on the adapter to accommodate the tripod mount's clamps.
