Lens Adapters

Pentax Mount Adapter K


The Pentax Mount Adapter K allows M42 Takumar and other M42 screw type mount lenses to attach to a Pentax K mount camera.

B&H Link to Purchase 


I also use Fotodiox M42 to Pentax K-Mount Adapters on some of my Takumar's

with the locking clip removed. These adapters I actually leave permanently on the lenses but you really need to be careful using them like this.
