Adapters for Nikon and Canon Glass?

I have a K 30 and was wondering as I surfed craigslist and ebay if there are adapters to mount the "other guys" stuff on our pentax DSLR's ? And would it be worth it?

In fact there are, and in the link offered by boriscleto it discusses optically corrected adaptors for canon and Nikon. These act like cheap teleconverters with the Nikon one having a 1.25 magnification and the canon one a 1.45 magnification.

There should be posted results using canon and Nikon 50/1.8 lenses as a reference, unless, thatnis, I deleted my shots. I have both. They cost about $30

I use one from Fotodiox, no complaints about the IQ and the adapter is well made.
Use it on a 55mm Macro lens and a 300mm f4 manual focus, the Nikon AF lenses are not much use in Mf mode as the focus
is just too coarse.
