Do I need the K to M42 mount adapter for this?
No, this is a K mount lens.

I have work in India and Cambodia coming up in February and I need to replace my newly bought 18-135mm by then. I'm not happy with the overall IQ outside of the center and none daylight hours. To this end, I'm finding that I prefer primes to zooms, I want to see how things go with getting a DA* 55mm before widening my lens stable.

Thank you for the help so far. You've gotten me to try try a couple of new things out of my Pentax K5 ii based upon what you've written here.

You might want to take some steps to protect your lenses when the ambient humidity is high--otherwise you risk having your lenses getting fungus. You need some sort of storage container with those moisture absorbent thingies in it to keep your lenses in when you're not shooting.

Have a great trip!

I've been keeping my lenses in cases with absorption packets. Will need to keep a supply of them handy when I return home to Taiwan later this year as well.
