    Pentax K to micro 4/3 adapter?

    Hi guys,

    My mother has some Pentax K lenses she never uses, so I was wondering if there are any direct Pentax K to micro 4/3 adapters. I've tryped it on ebay but couldn't find anything.

    Thanks to Guy Mancuso (Administrator), he has provided the following useful link: http://docs.google.com/Doc?id=dx428wg_10fdvsmtd7. All the best.

    170€ plus shipping for the adapter only?! These guys are crazy. It's more expensive than a set or primes.

    Seems like someone at Cosina read one of my posts.

    Just emailed Steve Gandy to obtain cost, and availability.

    Hope that they are less expensive than Novoflex adapters.

    Very nicely timed.

    As Cosina is making K and F lenses this is a no brainer for them.

    Yeah, I hope so too. I can see olympus and pana charging this type of price because their adapters allow for autofocus and specific brands/models. Now, an adapter for lenses that cost 30 bucks cannot cost 170
    I have a pentax 50mm f1.7 and a 24mm f2.0 that I'm dying to use, but it will all depend on the price.

    Right about consistency. New Voigtlander 20mm K & F mounts (pricey).

    Maybe a nice addition for K20, and m4/3???

    Where did you get them and what adapters do you have? Do you have any trouble with infinity focus?

    Thanks,
