Honeywell Pentax ES

I was wondering whether I could use lenses from an old but damaged Honeywell Pentax ES. I am just guessing that that is the camera type, because it looks like what I found in my search (http://whitemetal.com/pentax/es_1/es_1_info.htm) but has a silver top to it.

Thanks

I should think that the lenses for this camera are the 42mm Pentax Screw system, used on all Pentax prior to about 1978. Anything before the K and M series cameras K1000 MX, MV and ME, such as the Spotmatics will use this lens. It could be used with an adapter, on most recent manual focus cameras, or even, with manual focus, on AutoFocus cameras, except for the *ist and *istD.

I had a wonderful ES. Sent it in to be cleaned and it was destroyed and never worked again. When the camera was working it was wonderful! I've never seen an automatic camera figure the aperture setting so well.

I still have the lenses and am looking for a replacement camera. They are screw in Takumar lenses.

Old Spotmatic cameras take the same lense.

I sure wish that I had not had my camera cleaned. Some so called camera expert told me to send in cameras for cleaning every five years or so. It sure screwed up my camera.
