Does anyone know if the Ashia Pentax Right Angle Finder K will fit on the Pentax K10 D or the Pentax K 20 D?

I have the Reefconverter M and that fits the K10D.
Not sure if thats helpful or not, depends if the connectors are a standatrd size through the range.
So not really helpful I suppose

Hi Rees, if you look at this page :

http://www.bdimitrov.de/kmp/misc/focus/index.html

It seems to indicate that it won't. If it fits an M body it should
be OK because they are the same size as the K10D. Strange thing is an M Refcoverter fits a K body OK so there must only be a fraction of a mm in it.

Thank you shim for the info and the link, I am still a bit in the dark though. The only thing I suppose I can do is visit the second hand shop (not photographic) again and take my camera along to try it, if it has not been sold. I saw it there, but did not have a camera with me and the chap in the shop did not know what it was.

A while back I purchased a Seagull Right Angle Finder and it came with 4-5 fittings one of which fitted my K10D. I purchased it from SRB-Griturn.
Hope that helps. It cost £60.

Thanks Kenty, interesting, but it was the Pentax K angle finder I spotted in this second hand shop and wondered if it would fit the K10D or K20 D.

I have Pentax's right angle finder, the one with the switch for 1x or 2x magnification. It is either the M or the A; I'm at my work office so I can't look at it and tell which it is. It works fine with my MX, my LX, and my K10D. I bought it used several years ago, not cheap but better than standing on one's head to shoot ground-level subjects!

Pentax changed the viewfinder with the M series of cameras, the Spotmatic era RAFs fit up to the K series of cameras. The M series ones fit to present. So the answer is no, it wont fit.
