Isn't possible without optics in adapter. Canon lenses sit closer to the sensor than other brands. Canon lens would not focus to infinity without optical help. Might work for macro. Sorry. Sell those Canons and get nice Pentax lenses. Thats what a Pentax body really craves.

haha Canon lenses are coded differently and need an EOS 'computer' to control the lens' aperture.

Yea plus you'd be stepping back a little. Canon and Nikon's lens coatings are no where neat Pentax's SMC coating. (Which is why Canon and Nikon don't publish any numbers regarding refractivity indexes etc.)

On the plus side of things you might be able to get a mint selling them and buy Pentax glass for less
