    So i just inherited an old school ricoh kr-5 super from my dad with 2 macro lenses, a telephoto lense and some nice filters. So heres my question does anyone know what series of lenses this camera takes? I would like to be able to take these lenses to another camera with me if at all possible. my dad said he had a pentax camera prior to the ricoh and these lenses are from that camera. thanks for your help!

    Would help if you say what lenses you have. It usually says whether it's pentax or nikon... etc

    Nice.... its a Kmount.... Lots of good lenses out there real cheap. In fact, it looks like a K1000 copy.

    Do a search on takumar, pentax, K-mount on ebay. You should find a lot of options.

    KR-5 is a lot like a K1000 (Pentax) with a plastic body. Yes your lenses will work great with most Pentax K-mount bodies. You're in particularly good luck if the lenses are Pentax as they are as good as anything out there, well worth building your setup around. If you're looking at other bodies depending on what you're after you might consider a K1000, KX or MX. But really as long as your Ricoh is in decent shape you should get great photos with it.
