I should've specified that I meant the film KX from the start, sorry. Anyways, fixed that in the OP. I can see where KX caused some confusion. Sorry about that, then.
NOW I UNDERSTAND!!!

That freaking hyphen and the cap letters can screw everything up!!!!

You shouldn't apologize for this. There is a clear and obvious difference between KX and K-x. People on this forum don't say "for a digital K-x".

I've been looking around a bit for the chinon 45. It looks like a good, if slightly rare lens. I'm a little bit skeptical of ripping up a RF lens, because I'd have to deal with leaf shutters and focal length issues. If anyone has a lead on the Chinon it would be much appreciated.

Another option would be to pick up a Minolta 101 or 201 SRT and a Rokkor X 45mm/2. Those lenses are nearly pancake and quite good. I actually have a 201 and 45 (and a 50/1.7).

The ideal lens for a manual focus Pentax setup would be the 45mm chinon mentioned. There is also a Voightlander 40mm/2 and the M 40mm/2.8 but obviously they are 5mm wider than what you are looking for.

Hey, if anyone is interested in such, I'll be selling a couple SRT-101's in great condition, and some fine MC glass: PF-55/1.7, HF-300/4.5, PF-100/2.5, SI-28/2.5. Oops, no 45/2 pancake! But those are cheap on eBay...
