Pentax K-3 and K+ Multi Mount

I saw that there was a K+ Multi Mount giveaway. Is this Multi Mount compatible and available for the Pentax K-3?

The maker said that the multi-mount isn't currently compatible with any weather-sealed DSLRs, so the answer would be no.

Awe-sucks... Thanks for the reply. Hopefully that will change and be available for the newer Pentax DSLR's.

The website explains why - basically the WR mount is a larger outside diameter and thicker. They say they're working on itů

It was annouced on the the homepage on 1st March and ended on 16th March. I guess you were a step too late.

Yep. Unless it's just me (doubtful), that's one of those existential problems it's hard to really get past...

One thing I wonder about is why they have so many film SLRs on their incompatible list. They say my ultralight ZX-M FF standby/auxiliary camera is out for the modification because of a little open hole in the mount. What's the big deal in that case? I'd think, a bit of filler in that space and you're set to go. In my circumstance, I have Nikkor lenses I plan make adaptable for direct mounting to my K-3 (not entirely secure, but do-able), as well as for use by more conventional means on my m4/3 body. It might be worth it to have a secure, no worries PK/Ni-F mount for that unbeatably lightweight 2nd/3rd FF body in the bag.
