67 to K adapter with tilt?

Hello all,

I have two older 67 format lenses sitting on a shelve (105mm and 200mm), next to a broken 67 body (too expensive to have it fixed). Lately I've been thinking perhaps it could be nice to try the lenses on my K-mount camera (K-5). I see there are multiple adapters available on eBay, some including a tripod socket, which can be useful.

However, I was wondering, wouldn't the much larger coverage of the 67 lenses allow some tilting and/or shifting in front of a APS-C sensor, and wouldn't the increased mounting distance allow for the inclusion of a tilt/shift mechanism in a 67 to K adapter?

If so, does anyone here know whether there are adapters on the market that achieve this? Kinda like the ones that exist for Pentacon 6 lenses.

tx!! Wim

The German company Zörk used to offer such an adapter. Whether you can still get it new, or whether they are manufactured only on order, I don't know.

Anyway, they are NOT cheap!

Edit: I just found that the US subsidiary of Zörk sells the Tilt/Shift adapter for P67->T2 for $549. You would need an additional T2->PK adapter, or (probably cheaper) stack a T2->M42 + M42->PK.

A similar question arose in this recent thread:

Not cheap indeed. Esp considering the cheap price of a similar product for Pentacon 6. Though getting my Pentax 67 fixed would cost me more...

Perhaps I'll just stick to a regular adapter...

Tx for the link!!
