645 and 6X7 Adapters?

Simple question, why are there so few adapters available for 645 and 6X7 lenses to K-Mount and why are they so expensive.

Anyone know where to get a simple adapter? I intend to use the lenses in manual so I just need a basic adapter.

Thanks,
joe

They are so expensive because there are so few of them Seriously!

You only have one option with any adapter for medium format lens to K, Pentax or third party... manual functions only. B&H and Adorama do not have them in stock and admit they are not going to get them in stock.

Order from Pentax directly if you must (at a premium, unfortunately) and guarantee that you are getting an adapter that will focus to infinity and withstand the rigors of the larger format lenses to K junction.
