Is it even possible to get a hold of the genuine m42-k adapter anymore? Anyone knows where to buy or if any of you guys are letting go? Can sell it to me please? I bought a third party adapter and fully regret it! I can't remove it! I could not remember what I did or what I used to TRY to remove the adapter but there were deep scratches on the adapter and that scratch scratched my lens deep! Wah sayang laaaaaaa :cry:

I'm new to photography and have yet to own a digital, so I don't know if you guys have any lobangs for this. Most shops that I went to don't have, even third party ones took me awhile to find them. Am using a P50/P5 with only manual lens. Any help is greatly appreciated. :)

I was searching for this adapter as well and saw the original pentax adapter on Pentax webstore selling at US$21.95 which is really affordable. It is a pity that they do not ship to SIngapore. Saw a post somewhere in the Pentaxforum that these are new batches made in Phiilpines instead of Japan. Anybody know if Emjay or any local do carry stocks of them now and (hopefully not marked up too high)? If not, I guess I have to look for some ways to get this from US.

I managed to get a used one in the end as a new piece local price was twice that at Pentax webstore. Perhaps you can organise a Mass order at the clubsnap marketplace and link from here. Should have quite a few more people interested.
