    Hello all adn g'day from Perth Oz

    I just purchased a D40 recently and I have a set of Adaptall 2 Tamron
    lenses that I would like to use with this camera. I used these on my old
    Pentax ME.

    First question is: Is this doable?

    Second question: Is there an adapter ring available for this match up?

    I understand that the autofocus functionality will be gone.

    Thanks for any input.

    Yes (sort of).
    You'll need to find an Adaptall 2 Nikon mount. I don't think they're
    available new anymore, so you'll have to trawl the 2nd hand dealers or
    ebay.
    I think you might also lose metering, or at least the more advanced
    matrix modes. See http://www.nikonians.org/nikon/slr-lens.html

    There are some very inexpensive latest model Nikon lenses that would
    autofocus almost instantly and make use of the D40 metering ands
    probably optically superior to the relatively ancient Pentax lenses.

    Thanks for the comments. Much appreciated and taken on board.

    If I can find an adapter ring, I'll play around with them but in the
    meantime, I'll shop around for Nikon or Sigma lenses.

    Cheers
