Lens Adapters

Set of 3 Asahi Pentax Extension Tubes

The Pentax Extension Tube Set contains three tubes of different length which can be used individually, or in any combination, to obtain the desired magnification. Actual magnification effect changes with each specific lens.

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.
