Pentax MG lens use on Pentax K-r?
Jan 31, 2013

First time poster and been over 20 years since I've used an SLR.

I have an old 1980's Pentax MG with unknown (maybe Tamron) telephoto lens and have tried placing it on the new(ish) K-r and while it appears to physically fit, doesn't seem to be just point and click in that pressing the shutter does not take a photo.

Is there some setting required to use the old lens on the newer digital camera?
