OT: Pentax K-mount stuck on ZX-7 body! (slr)
I have this Pentax mount (or so I thought) "Albinar ADG" 28-85mm f/3.5-4.5 lens. A friend has a Pentax ZX-7 SLR body. He's not knowledgeable about cameras at all. He told me he was wanting a zoom lens so I suggested he try the one I had on hand. A couple days later he tells me its stuck and hands it over. The lens is indeed attached but has a few milimeters of play in its rotation. It doesn't lock in either direction and also doesn't push into the body or pull out. Also, the automated functions of this camera don't allow me to have the back open and trigger the shutter at the same time, so I can't look at the back end of the lens through the camera.
I really don't know what to do with this thing. Should I just take it in? Do you guys have any little tricks I can try? Arg!
