M42 Takumar 55/1.8 on Sony Alpha A700 ??

IŽ d like to ask if is possible to fit this lens with M42 adapter WITHOUT glass to A700 with keeping a possibility to focus to infinity. Or If I need a reduction with
glass? Thank you.

it should be possible since the registration distance of the sony should be about 1mm less than the pentax therefore some form of flanged adaptor should be available to retain infinity focus
