standard lens on a digital body

I have a Pentax 6x7, film camera, and use it a lot. I have ignored digital simply because I use a Pentax lens which I've modified and it produces unique images. If there's a chance an adapter ring of some kind exists that will allow me to use this lens on a digital body, I'll make the jump to digital......Is there any chance I can do this? Where can I get get more info on this ?

hmmm... maybe... I'm lookin'

There's a thread on where someone has done it, but I'm not seeing the name of the adapter.

Here's a link to an adapter of fleabay:

Getting the adapter won't be nearly as hard as adjusting to the fact that your 6x7 lenses will have a *much* narrow field of view because the sensor is so much smaller than the film you have been using.

I can't find it at the moment, but there is 6x7 > K adapter made by Pentax.
But bear in mind what Marc wrote! The FOV will be VERY different.
