Fotodiox adapter stuck on Pentax lens

How do I get it off? Without damaging the lens, I mean?

Is it safe to assume that it is a K-mount to non-Pentax camera adapter? If so, there should be a release button on the adapter. If that is defective, a Dremel tool with cutting disk might work.

Well, there goes the hammer idea. If the lens is truly expensive, I would suggest calling fotodiox for support. If you can't do that, I would probably very carefully have a dremel to the fotodiox while protecting the lens.

If the adapter is off the camera and the adapter's release is not working, you may be able to look inside and see what the release is not doing, then maybe "help" it. (that is if the adapter does not have glass).
