I don't think the company behind this adapter is serious. Better to let it go.

The delays are bothersome. However, they do have prototypes on hand, and the reason for the delays is that they decided to push for a Nikon to Sony adapter first. Given the user base, that's a sensible decision.

'Hello everyone, we have been busy working on Pentax K-Sony E adapter LA-KE1 recently, so we apologize for not responding to your private messages in time.
Due to major changes in the upstream and downstream supply chains, our products have unexpectedly delayed.
At present, preparations for the LA-KE1 adapter body are complete. Only a few minor things left (like caps, stickers...). That won't be long.
Here's our LA-KE1(and other adapters from us) sales network:
Our preferred channel in the United States is B&H.
Friends in Europe can place an order from our distributor in Italy(Name will be revealed soon).
Japanese distributor is ShotenKobo.
Hong Kong SAR distributor is Zenit (Hong Kong) Company Limited.
Thank you
.'

Prepping to get a A7iii for this.
Already have a very old A7 (bought since release), but it won't work with this adapter.

Should it work the same for APC-S and full frame?

Personally, unless they have a list of lenses, I will assume its for the more well known ones like FA limiteds and some of the FA* (these lenses have been shown with the adapter ).
I would think the fully electronic ones to be further in their priority queue. (I have read a review on B&H that claims the Nikon version did not work on his G series lenses. )

Best is to ask directly on the FB page.

There is a list of lenses on the fb page, but it seems stale.

Just got a used A7iii in anticipation for the adapter, even though I sold my previous FE lenses and only have a Sigma E 30/2.8 (apsc) lens as my only AF lens for this system.
The number of limited and FA* lenses I have does justify the spending imho.

About Pentax Adapter LA-KE1

After solving the production issue, we have already started shipping to overseas distributors. The supply is relatively limited, and you will be able to receive the item from our dealers in the near future.

Our next focus is on production and the development of firmware v02. LA-KE1 will be listed on our official online store after all dealers' orders are fulfilled. Users who do not have a distributor coverage area can purchase from our official website later.
