Contax G lenses adaptable to Pentax K ?

Hello,
My question is concrete about compatibility of the lenses of the Contax G system with Pentax K. I have found information about how to adapt the Contax/Zeiss SLR lenses, but nothing about whether it is possible to adapt the lenses of the G-system: Biogen 21 mm, Planar 45 mm and Sonnar 90 mm. Thank`s for help, though I expect the answer being negative.

The Contax G system isn't an SLR, it is a rangefinder, so it has a very short register distance. They cannot work on any SLR except for macro use. There are adapters to put them on Sony NEX and Micro 4/3 cameras.

The Contax SLR lenses can be adapted with a Leitax conversion.

So they won`t adapt to the K01 either since it is constructet to accept K-mount, right ?

Thank`s for answer.

Right, it is a mirrorless, but retains the long register distance of the SLR mount.
