    [I know this is more appropriate in the equipment forum, but I thought it would get more views here. ;)]

    I'm selling an old used Pentax K1000 film SLR to B&H, and I'm having some trouble naming the lenses. I've never really dealt with this Pentax or any SLR's before, so I'm not sure what the names of the lenses are or anything. :p

    So, who's up for a friendly game of name that lens?

    Lens #2:

    Thanks. :mrgreen:

    OK, I'll go:

    1) 2x Teleconverter..............I'd call it "Maxie". :lol:
    2) 28-70 Zoom....................I'd call it "Some Young MC Hammer". :lol:

    Seriously, the first one is a 2x teleconverter, it goes between the camera body and another lens, doubling its focal length. Cosina makes it (in S. Korea I think) and it's pretty cheap.

    The second one is a 28-70mm/3.5 Macro Zoom by Samyang (get it? Samyang=Some Young :lol: ) also made in S. Korea. Also pretty cheap.

    They're both in PK (Pentax bayonet) mount. MC stands for multi-coated.

    Hope this helps.

    As soon as I saw Mit had posted in here, I knew he'd identified them. :p
