Long-Tele Macros [from Nikon] on Pentax K-7
Feb 26, 2011

Hey Guys,

i have a heavy D700 with some nice lenses. For second system i have M43 which has some disadvantiges. I plan to buy the K-7 because its low weigt its excellent build quality and its decent live-view function and its bracketing qualities.

But i have one serious problem: I like to shoot Macro with long-tele lenses. I have for my D700 an older 200mm F4 Nikon Macro and Sigma 400mm F5,6 Tele Macro.

I woul like to have them adapted on the K-7. I would use them only with Liveview, Tripod and on macro-working distance.

There are some Nikon F to Pentax K Adaptors around, but they all have glass elements. These elements are bad for lens IQ....So i would like to remove them like discribed here:

Now my question: Does anyone have a long-tele macro lens on Pentax K-7 with no glass element adaptor? What are the experiences?

Thanks
