Konica/Pentax adapter

Hi,

I have the opportunity to purchase a Konica UC Fisheye Hexanon lens 15mm f2.8.
Is there an adapter available to mount it on a Pentax K mount?
I would prefer one that does not originate from China.

Regards.

Konica cameras can mount adapted Pentax lenses, but not the other way around without a corrective optic. (Konica registration distance = 40.2mm, Pentax = 45.5mm)



That being said, I seem to remember a member on this forum some years back who had successfully created a K-mount Konica lens by grafting on a flanged M-42 adapter in place of the native Konica bayonet.

Edit: Memory wrong. Olympus and Minolta lenses yes...Vivitar Konica yes...Hexanon no
