Olympus OM 20 lenses to Pentax Kr

Does anyone know of an available adapter for this?

I don't want to physically chop a lens to make it work................there seems to be every other possible adapter on ebay - amazon But the one that I require.

Any help would be appreciated.

Which lens?

Olympus OM lens for Pentax cameras

Replacing the mount is just about the only way. The OM focal flange distance is less than 1mm longer than the K-mount focal flange distance. Any adapter would require a corrective lens for infinity focus and would act like a short tele-converter.

Buy a MILC camera like the Sony NEX, Fuji X-E1, m4/3(olympus or panny), Samsung NX, etc. You can get a used NEX or Olympus for cheap.

The lenses for the OM that I want to convert for use on my Pentax [k mount] are:

Olympus OM system auto zoom 35-105mm f3.5-4.5 and

Vivitar 28mm f2.8

Then the Leitax won't help you. Why convert a Vivitar? K-mount versions are plentiful.
