I have just bought a CHEAP Vivitar 80-200mm 1:4.0 manual focus lens with a PK fitting but i cant seem to get it to fit my KX.
It looks like the flange in the 2nd picture is to long and that is what is causing the problem.
All help is much appreciated.

It has to be cut off If you search Google you will find
that it's well documented.

Last night I resized the flange with a small saw.

First I unscrewed the flange to avoid any dust on the inside of the lens. Then it was easy going. (10 mins).

Second I checked for that famous pin to block my AF slot. Luckily it didn't had a pin.

I snapped the lens on my k10 - and it is now working - nicely.

Thanks all!
