Zeiss lens to a pentax mount? Is there a way?

I happened to own a Contax ST with a Zeiss planar T* 50/1.4. An awesome lens. Is there a way to mount this to my K-7?

Nice to meet you, and thank you very much. At a quick glance, it actually looks doable!!! Let me check out the site thoroughly and perhaps re-post with my result, or with questions if I have any.

Is it a C/Y mount or other?

Mine is a C/Y mount because after all, it is on my Contax ST.

BTW, I am going to do it. This looks totally doable. Looking at the site, I have many surgical instruments that I have access to that can substitute!!
