M42-K mount adapter can be found easily, Jal. I think lens.sg at peninsula should sell this adapter (third party one)

Contax Yashica (C/Y) flange distance (45.5) is too close to Pentax K (45.46), hence an adapter for this mount is not possible, unless you modify the lens, which is a pity if the modification is not reversible.

there are adapters with correction glasses in between, with correction to certain degree but it can get any mount to any mount with that type of adapter. without modification of the lens

Whats the price range for such an adapter in local shops? Ebay has them really cheap, but I have to wait a long time for them to reach me..

I bought the Leitax adapter for Carl Zeiss Planar 85/1.4 MMJ lens converted to M42.
Since my colleague wanted back his CZ 85/1.4 (on loan to me), I going to let go the Leitax adapter.
Interested, please send PM.
