Pentax 67 K Adapter

Pentax 67 Lens to Pentax 35mm K-Mount Body Adapter 37954 B&H

Is B&H's Pentax 67 K Adapter for inner/outer or both 67 lenses?

Also, has it been tested with K-30?

I have a fotodiox adapter that worked beautifully with my K-20 but certainly does not fit (waaaay too tight, almost didn't get it off) with my k-30.

Thanks a ton,
Kathy

Hello,

This adapter fits bayonet mount 35mm Pentax cameras and allows the use of 67 lenses with them. With this adapter, the lens will focus to infinity, however, it cannot be used with automatic diaphragm or open aperture metering.

I am sorry, but I am not sure what you mean by

We have not tested this adapter here nor am I aware of any photographer that has.

I believe it supports both, I own the adapter if you want to know anything else about it.

Hi Adam. I have the Fotodiox? version that worked great with my k20 but simply does not fit my k30. It is too tight. I'm wondering if b and h's version fits/works with the k30 before I spend over $100. The last one I almost couldn't get off my camera so now I'm paranoid.

I'd also like to know if this is an official Pentax brand. My screw adapter is official Pentax and fits like a glove on both k20 and k30.

Hello,

The Pentax adapter you linked too B&H # PEAB67 is made by Pentax and as adapters go should fit like any other Pentax lens. When using off brand adapters, the fit is usually an issue since the bayonet mounts are proprietary.

I don't have a K-30, but the Pentax adapter has fit ever Pentax body I ever tried it on, including the *ist D, K10D, K20D, and K-5, so I think you'll be fine
