K mount lens to 645?

Is there a way to mount K mount lenses (ex. FA 50mm 1.4) to the 645? What an incentive to buy the new 645D if you already have a bunch of SLR lenses, no? Imagine a 31mm ltd on this camera.... WOW!

Image circle is way too small. Mounting 35mm FA lenses on a 645 would be similar to mounting the DA14 on a 35mm Film camera - you'd get a nice circular image

Adding to the privious post: You will not be able to focus to infinity, not even close. The lens would be mounted to far from the sensor. The 645 body is much deeper than a 35mm SLR due th the space required for the bigger mirror.

I knew it was too good to be true. Thanks for the explanations.
