Due to the longer registry distance of a Nikon DSLR there is no direct adaptor. There is no electrical interface what so ever even if you can mount a pentax lens.. Generally lenses are tied to one maker

Fotodiox has an adapter that works on the Nikon mount but it will not work on newer lenses without an aperture ring. I have tried this and i get stuck at the smallest aperture .

Here's the link to the adapter on Amazon
