Just remember to factor in the cost of a PKA adaptor if you don't already have one, they command quite a premium price these days, unless you get lucky
I have no financial interest in this EBAY seller except I just ordered an Adaptall to PK adapter to see if it works as it should. For about $11 USD I don't mind testing this item and posting on this thread. The estimated delivery is July 31 to Aug 09, so may be a while before I test the adapter.

I have received several different adapters as part of a 'Lens and Adapter' package when buying a lens I wanted. Looking for an adapter that is desired that is supplied with a lens might be a way to get started with Adaptall lenses.

for Adaptall lenses, I've found it easier to just buy the PK/A adapter for each lens... given how touchy some of the adapters can be, mounting and dismounting can be frustrating

For $11 I'd guess it's a PK adaptor, not PKA, so you'll not get the "A" setting and have to control the lens completely manually, which is not what was wanted.


I'll agree in principle with pepperberry farm regarding one adaptor for each lens, I had a Fujica AX mount for each of my Adaptall lenses back in the '80's, however, at today's prices for PKA adaptors, unless you're really going to be using the lenses a lot, more than one is probably a luxury one can live without
