67 lenses and K-mount

This is something of a dumb question, but I can't find the answer (at least the one i'm hoping for). I see there are 67-system (or 6x7) pentax lens adapters to the k-mount on my k7 and k10d, do those adapters allow for auto exposure control with lenses that support it? I'm not looking for auto-focus, but I'd like to avoid stop down metering if possible. Is there a specific adapter that would be required? (along the lines of the p/k p/ka mount on the adaptall lenses)

Thanks and sorry in advance for the foolish newbie question. =]

in a word


I believe the medium format adaptors will work in a similar manner to the M42 adaptor

I shoot a lot of 67 MF lenses on my k20d--superb results. Here is a thread with lots of info, though many pics I had to remove for space.
