AC Adapter

Does anyone know where I can buy an AC Adapter for the K-r? The Pentax website says it is model # K-AC109U but they don't sell it on their website and I can't find it anywhere else, not even any cheap knock-offs on Ebay.

Any ideas?

Try contacting Pentax' Parts department rather than looking at the retail items on the web store. I know My manuals have all mentioned the -2 to +3 diopters available but they aren't at retail. I called Pentax Canada Parts and they shipped the same day at a reasonable $30
I imagine the AC adapter may be the same.
You can probably find a Generic multi adapter as well that would work it's a matter of it having the option for the correct voltage and one of the included pins fitting
Yo have a variant on Wheatfield's avatar lol I just noticed

Just called Pentax customer service and they told me to look online and that it was "unlikely I would find it"

Great service there...

The only place I can find any mention of it is Adorama, and they say it's backordered with no ETA on if they will get anymore. Also it's $79.99! For an AC adapter! That cannot be right

I would just buy extra li-ion batteries.

I bought this one and it seems to actually last longer than the Pentax brand one my camera came with.

I've seen the adapter show up occasionally on Ebay, and a couple times in the marketplace here as part of a kit being sold. If you can find one of those threads, maybe PM the guy selling and see if he'd sell it on its own.

Edit: As others have said, more Li-ion batteries would probably be a better bet, unless you really need to have the camera working unattended for long periods.

Ya, really the only time you need a AC adapter is if you are doing back to back portraits in a studio all day long.

that could easily be right. I remember selling AC adaptors for Video cameras for $250. And these were the ones with local voltage (before multi voltage adapters) the 220 v were $300

I unwittingly started a similar thread here: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-camera-field-accessories/172316-ac-adapter-k-r.html

It has some additional info, so I thought I'd include it here. Good luck!
