Voigtlander 28-210

I have a voigtlander 28-210 AF lens that I bought for a Minolta Dynax 505 about 10 years ago. Is there any hope of conversion to Pentax K? I looked for a conversion ring but all that there are, it seems, are rings to convert Pentax to other formats.

This lens came in a Pentax mount. Just sell yours to a Minolta user and buy a Pentax version. Better yet, I'd just sell it and get something else. This lens isn't a true, top of the line Voigtlander lens. It's a Cosina/Vivitar/Phoenix badged lens, with cheaper outer shell and always gets poor ratings on image quality (although I've never owned one).

IMO, the only Cosina/Phoenix/Vivitar/Voigtlander zoom that came from that same line of lenses worth buying is the 19-35mm. I have one and it features great image quality, even though the lens body is very cheap plastic.
