KAF3 won't work on every lenses since the K100d does not allow SDM (ultrasonic AF motor).

The M42 adapter is available from Pentax, and is extensively discussed here on the Forum. Also, there is a lot of information here...

Adapters other than Pentax, especially with flanges, tend not to be able to focus to infinity.

Don't know about the k100d but I've recently determined that the k100d super doesn't like the features of the older power zoom lenses.

The K100D Super was the first DSLR to accept SDM lenses. The K100D does not.

You can edit your original comment to eliminate the caps lock, I suggest you do

Meanwhile, I'm moving this to the Beginner's forum, as this is a common question among newcomers to the system.
