    The m42 adapter in fotografix is likely the same as the one in ebay sold by camera hunter.
    It looks exactly alike.

    If 3 rd party adapter is better, it is cheaper too.

    Yes, they look exactly the same. I prefer it over the original Pentax one

    As to the Auto/Manual switch, yes, you need to switch to Manual (so you'd be able to adjust aperture).
    Yap... the foil did it... thanks fengwei. I would never thought of this...
    The adpater did allow the lens to be firmly mounted with no gap... but the lens is too small to cover the contacts. The foil extend it by a few mm and did the trick.

    Everything else works... except the lens dun lock in place.
