M42 to PK adapter

Hey all,

Realized too late that the flange-style adapters don't focus to infinity. Looking for one of the ones without the flange, but have a lot of cool things coming up soon and can't justify the expensive Pentax one, nor can I really wait the 2 weeks or so it would take to have one of the Chinese ones shipped.

Does anyone have an extra cheap-o they can sell me? $10, drop it in an envelope, and I'll have it in time for my next trip. Thanks!

Davis

Not quite... Looking for the M42 to Pentax K that allows infinity-- the one without the flange. Thanks, though!

if you are looking for the cheap ebay adapter, I have those but with no spring-tab (that is supposed to hold the adapter in place on the camera). I found it to be a little harder to remove it from the camera with the tab on. So I remove the tab and fix the adapter on the lens, and that makes it safer for the camera and easier to change lens.
