645A to PKA Adapter

Is there such a thing and if so where can I get one? I looked on eBay and all I saw was 645 to PK.

I've not seen one, don't think they exist. . . . . I kind of hope they don't make one so that my lens buying parameters are controlled.

There are no 645 "A" adapters to K "A" adapters. Just the regular one with manual focus/metering/f-stop etc.

Thanks for the replies! It would be cool, wouldn't it?

Not really - at least for me. The "A" contacts are there so that the camera can automatically determine what lens is being used, and stop down to the selected f/stop prior to the exposure.

The engineering problem is that the 645 "A" lens is nowhere near compatible when it comes to the linkages and such.

As it is now, I have only used my 645 lenses once or twice on my K bodies.

Once, when I was shooting more 645 film, it was cool to switch back and forth, but realistically, my 645 collection is dead and sits on a shelf.

A 645 to K tilt/shift adapter would also be cool.
