Lens for Ricoh cameras? Third party?

    Do any of the third party lenses work well with the Ricoh K mount
    cameras? I don't mean just the basic functions but all of them? The Pentax A
    mount lenses won't let the camera set the aperture?

    Thanks

    I don't know, but I use Ricohs, and I use Pentax, Ricoh, Sears, and I even
    have one Osawa. They all work OK and are fairly cheap on E-Bay.

    Do you use any A mount Pentax lenses on the Ricohs? I've picked up three
    Ricoh bodies for very little and would like one lens that can handle the
    full range of features.

    No, I don't use anything w/ "Program", so i don't know if they'd work.

    Tamron still makes lenses that work with most manual focus
    cameras including Ricoh. They are 100% compatible with all Ricoh
    bodies. Including the XRP and KR30. They require a Ricoh adaptall mount.
    A lot of K mount lenses from the 1980's are compatible with Pentax A and
    Ricoh P {program} mount.
