Adaptall 2 mount

Hello my fellow siters!
I've trying to find a Tamron Adaptall 2 mount for Pentax pka but is seems quite hopeless. Even that basic Tamron Adaptall 2 mount (for K-mount) seems to be dificoult to get. Does anybody have any ideas how to find one?

To the Original Poster:

None of the above links are the one you are looking for - I believe you are looking PKA version, that allows automatic aperture. All the above links are for PK version which does not offer auto aperture.

The one you are looking for will have electrical contacts and also be stamped P/KA.

That's right, I've been trying to get that P/KA but it seems impossible to get one. I don't mind using my old Tamron lenses manually so I decided to buy a PK. Maybe one day I'll manage to get a PKA.

I paid $US110 for my PKA about a month ago on e-bay & I had to fight for it. The Pentax adaptall II seem to be more than twice the price of the Canon & others although the PK seems to be reasonable.

We should ask Tamron to make us some more adapters...

That $US110 is close to the maximum price I would be willing to pay.
I wonder why these ones for Pentax are so rare comparing to Canon's or Nikon's.

To my amazement, the plain K adaptor I got from Keh turned out to be a KA!!! discovering that was a happy day indeed.

You were very lucky. I guess Keh doesn't have them anymore?
