Tamron Adaptall 2 question

I have tamron adaptall 2 35-135 with a minolta mount. Can I buy any Tamron adaptall 2 lens for Pentax and use that adaptor mount to replace the minolta mount to use on my K200d?

Normally you can just purchase the mount for between 20 and 40 depending on K or. KA mount

isn't the k200d a K mount? I'm new to DSLRs so I'm not sure.

Yes, the Adaptall-2 K-mount adaptor will let you use the lens on your K200D. You will have to use stop-down metering but the K200D works well with manual focus K-mount lenses. I have the Adaptall-2 40A 35-135 lens and it is a very sharp lens, good color rendition.

I wouldn't count on getting the PK/A AD2 mount for $40. Getting the for $65-85 is possible with patience. A few people have gotten lucky and found them hidden in a "lot" of stuff.

Unless he gets a PK/A ad2 mount. Then he can do A.

Edit: There are actually about 5 different Tamron adapters for Pentax, 3 K-mount and 2 m42 mount. (There's also the Ricoh but that's another story). With the K mount versions there is the original Adaptall mount (relatively rare) and the newer Adpatall 2 mount that allow the lenses to work like the Pentax M series lenses. The most recent is the PK/A which allows lenses to work like the A series lenses. This one brings something of a premium. The other 2 are for m42 bodies. 1 is a basic auto aperture adapter and the other one is for operation with the ES, ES II and Spot F open aperture metering m42 bodies. It has a gearing looking structure on it that makes it recognizable. I guess I should gather these up and take a pic of them sometime.
