If I'm not wrong, it should be proprietary.

After looking up the web, it does seem like the Praktica B mount is a variant of the Pentax K mount. I don't know how much difference they have or if they are cross compatible.
There have been hacks that adapt P-K bayonet cameras with the Praktica bayonet. Not sure about metering ability though.

Just get the original Pentacon or Carl Zeiss Jena B-mount prime lenses, the common ones are value for money. Can find on ebay. Singapore 2nd hand shop price a bit high. The only lens that is not so good is the Pentagon 28/2.8 but just stop down to f5.6 and u will be OK.

I see from your sig that you use both T* and HFT. I am very curious what is the difference between them. :) So far I haven't found a satisfactory answer from web searches. Maybe I'm missing something..
