Leitax converter for Carl Zeiss macro-plannar 100mm f2 ZF.2 lens,

hi, all:
I bought a Carl Zeiss macro-plannar 100mm f2 ZF.2 lens to use on my Pentax KP, would love to learn tips from any one who has experience of using Leitax converter with this lens on pentax KP or other pentax camera. Is the conversion (w/ Leitax ) easy to do? how is the camera respond to the converted lens?

any info is Appreciated

Dear Fenwoodian:
Sorry for late reply, I appreciate all your input, Thank you very much.
Q: for your experience, is the altered lens able to focus to infinity? and will the lens be able to engage electronic focus beep with Pentax K1? I know for a fact, the ZF will not engage EF when focus.
As for the extra aperture ring, no offense, just curious, would you willing to sell your extra converted Zeiss aperture ring🤭?
Best Regards
