K10d / minolta lens

Does anyone know if an adapter exists for the k mount for older minolta lenses? I am being gifted a few it would be nice to use them without the need for 2 adapters. ( I've found k-m42 and m42- minolta...)
thanks Rob

I don't know of any adapters available. If there are any out there, the lenses still will not focus to infinity.

A Pentax mount could be put on the Minolta lens (at least most of them) but you would still have to adjust the focus ring to reach infinity.

At this point, you would have to ask yourself if it's worth your time and effort instead of just selling them and buying a Pentax equivalent Unless you have something special like the Rokkor f/1.2...that would fetch about $600...
