All the adapters need a corrective element which essentially works like a teleconverter. The IQ isn't going to be good- so IMO either get the Nikon lenses you need, or ditch the camera and get a Pentax APS-C body.

Adam is right. Any K-to-Nikon adapter would require a supplemental optical element at the rear of the lens in order to attain infinity focus.

Soooo...probably better to stick with your K5, K-01, and K200D for use with your K-mount stuff.

I use a Nikon to Pentax one by Fotodiox and found if the lens is good there is little change, may be the same for Pentax to Nikon. Well made and
has multi elements.
Really the only way to know for yourself is to try one, the end results will always be subjective.
