Leica R lens

Hello.
Can I use any Leica R lens on a Pentax body? Is there a system to allow it?
Thanks

There's a Pentax 43mm in Leica R mount.

I'm sure there are adapter rings that can allow you to use Leica lenses on Pentax K mount.

Do you rembember where did you see it?

Séamuis, I know Leitax. But I'm looking for a ring for the body not a ring for every lens.

this is not a K mount lens, and that isnt an R mount body. that is a special M mount lens that pentax made using the 43mm optical design. this wont help the OP at all. and sorry I dont know of any adapters for R mount. wouldn't it be impossible to have an adapter without loosing infinity focus? because the R mount, K mount, and nikon F mount are almost identical, if im not mistaken.

I said it wasn't K mount, but I thought it was R mount. Sorry.

nothing to be sorry about. M mount and LTM are rangefinder. R mount is SLR.
