Help with understanding old camera lenses and corresponding DSLR bodies
Jun 19, 2014

I just inherited two lenses and have no DSLR body on which to put them. The only camera body I have is an old Pentax SLR (on which these don't fit) and although that is nice when I want to shoot film, I've decided that the time has come to buy a DSLR on which these lenses fit.

These are the lenses:

Auto Rikenon 1:2 f=50mm

Kenlock SS Auto 1:2.8/28 52mm

That's all the information which is written on them, which as you can probably tell, I don't really understand. Therefore, I would love it if anyone could tell me a little more about these, or, suggest a DSLR body which would accommodate these lenses. So far I've been looking at the Pentax K-30 as I understand that they work with that body but I was wondering if there were any more options available out there for me to choose from.
