Adaptall 2 for K-Mount

Hello,

I am looking for a reliable adaptall 2 Tamron adapter to K (not M42).

Kind regards.

I got one from amazon. I think it was about 10 $ US.
Do not go to ebay! I got one that they said was a pentax and wasn't and was not the one they pictured! I hate that.

Hi,

Are you looking for a regular PK-mount or a PK/A mount with aperture control (?) ... I may have an extra of each.

Cheers, J

Oooh! Je serais très intéressé par l'un ou l'autre.

Thanks for the plug photolady95. Jome: I also have PKM mounts. I don't recommend the new clones for use on pentax (no aperture connections). More info here:


Tamron Adaptall Lenses for Pentax: Adaptall Adapters - Pentax Lens Review Database

Konica and PK mounts are easily distinguished Jack, the typical (adaptall-2) PKM has the flange with F numbers on (only minolta MD and leica LR mounts also have that), the konica has a mostly black edge and is much thicker (due to shorter reg distance), only the KR labelling confuses some.

If someone is interested, I could exchange the Tamron adaptall-2 for Pentax with the one I have for Contax.

Yes, I've been using it. (this one has no contacts for aperture communication, if that's the one you need)

If they don't supply what they pictured, I complain to them. If they won't satisfy me, I will complain to eBay. The sellers know that eBay is on the buyer's side these days, so I have never had to go that far.
