    Default Screw Mount Adaptor for K Mounts

    he he he
    to be exact: I'm looking for an adaptor that will allow the old screw mount lenses on the K mount.
    I have an Asahi and an MX bodies, hence I have lenses for both. I'd like to be able to share between the two bodies. I heard that they actually exist.
    Can anyone confirm and tell where to look ?

    thanks and cheers.

    If you are talking about from Singapore, then go to Lucky Chinatown at ... well... Chinatown. $50 for the original Pentax K --> Screw M42 from fotographic.

    However, if you are looking for cheaper alternative, you can try Ebay :

    http://www.ebay.com.sg/viItem?ItemId=3872737784

    I think the original Pentax version is better then the rest as you do not need removal tools and at the same time, it is better made.

    yes. The tolerances of the PK mount mean that none of the 3rd party ones I've had previously worked as well as the Asahi original.
