you must choose, you can't mount Nikon F lenses on Pentax K DSLR, there are no adapters that work this way.
Actually...

are you dreaming about a new mount ?

in fact, you can already mount F lenses on K cameras : you need a 1.04mm spacer...
you must hold the F lens... screwed clockwise only 1 or 2 mm
it's just (not) good enough for a test !

No support for SDM on these.


I think there also was a 1.7x or so. No idea. Maybe I had the MC7 2.0x TC. I found it pretty crappy and sold it.

can mount Nikon "F" lenses on Pentax "K" DSLR...

....
Another thorn in the side : NiKon and Pentax mounts are exclusives :
- one can mount NiKon Fx lenses on Canon-EF / Sony-E cameras (w/ adapters)
- another can mount Pentax K(n) Lenses on Canon-EF or Sony-E cameras (with adapters)
you must choose, you can't mount Nikon F lenses on Pentax K DSLR, there are no adapters that work this way.
Lens speaking, Pentax is somehow a lonely player... hope Cosina / Voiglšnder will be back soon too !
...

Now you can mount Nikon F lenses on Pentax K DSLR :
Pentax K+ Multi-Mount - Adaptist

... the special version for WR bodies : K5x, K3x :
Pentax K+ Multi-Mount (WR version) - Adaptist

has anyone tried ?

the web is full of news and rumors of a Pentax FF camera coming soon since... 2010 ?...

this time... Kenko is back with 3 new DG MCx AF Converters :
www.kenkoglobal.com/photo/lens_accessories/teleplus_dg_pk.html

... or just a mirage ?

That is a waste of money. Some don't communicate with sdm, but not sure wich one or all.

I got one online and directly sent it back. It had power contacts on the camera side to power the unit. But none on the lens side to power a modern lens. So it was only good for old or screwdrive lens. Caveat emptor (buyer beware).

Can't see any Contact on the photos from their site ?
... only 7 Holes to pass the Contacts through...
what Contacts are you speaking about ?

Finally found it on PF... the key words are PK Multi-Mount :
www.pentaxforums.com/articles/influential-gear/pentax-k-plus-multi-mount.html
www.pentaxforums.com/articles/events/pentax-k-multi-mount-pkmm-giveaway.html

but the Question remains the same : has anyone tried ?
