    not too sure, but i think some Carl Zesis lenses comes in M42 mount and you need an adaptor to use on PK mount.

    M42 mount zeiss lens can be used on Pentax DSLR without problem

    yashica/contax mount zeiss lens can also be MOD to pentax DSLR mount, very easily.

    M42 = Pentax screw mount. Pentax has an adapter so you can use M42 on K mount.
