Konica - Minolta

Will Konica mount fit Pentax K without consequences?
Thanks

Sorry your question was not answered earlier. Anyway, while I've never tried it personally, I sincerely doubt one could use Minolta or Konica lenses on a Pentax camera. Even if the lens were to actually fit onto the Pentax mount physically, the electrical contacts (location and wiring) would likely be entirely different.

Thanks for taking the time Stewart. I didn't think so but wanted confirmation. I get mixed-up sometimes.

Actually, three weeks ago (before selling the last of my Konica-Minolta equipment), I could have answered your question without any reservations. I had both Pentax and Minolta stuff for some time, but never tried to mix the two. I waited after first seeing your question, hoping someone still owning Minolta equipment would answer after trying it. When some time passed with no response, I then decided to add my one and a half cents worth. Take care.

I'm going to try to keep this alive just a little longer.

Is there a specific reference resource that can tell which brand will fit onto the Pentax K. I have it somewhere at the back of my mind (the dream part I guess) that there were some which would fit or am I just thinking of the M42.
