Adapt Pentax lens to Fuji body?

Does B&H have an adaptor to use Pentax lens on a Fuji X-E1 body?
If so, how would my Pentax DA 21, 70, etc work on the Fuji; what would the limitations be?
In your opinion, do you think using such an adaptor makes sense?
thanks

Hello.

There is no adapter that we carry available for "K" mount lens to be used on an "X" mount. I have much experience using legacy Nikkor (silver barrel manual focus) lenses on DSLR bodies. The draw back is they are extremely difficult to focus, especially when used wide open. Likewise, there is no interface with the bodies electronics. How effective fine focusing would be using the LCD or EVF displays would be at best trail and error. The flip side is when it all works, the results are fantastic.
