Adapter to use Canon lenses on K200D

Here's a question i've been trying to answer for about a week, but haven't had any luck.

I recently purchased from a friend a Canon AE-1, with various lenses, including a Spiratone 1:8 f=500mm mirror lens & extenders (36mm, 20mm & 12mm) plus a super macro lens down to 0.15x.

My silly question is, does anyone make some kind of adapter mount so I can use these lenses on my K200D?

I'd rather not buy T or K mount lenses in these focal lengths since I received these for so little money.

If this is the wrong place for this thread, please relocate.

Thank you.

The Spiratone mirror lens is already a T-Mount. Just unscrew the Canon adapter and replace it with a P/K T-mount adapter.

I don't think there's any adapter to allow Canon lenses on Pentax bodies.

In fact, I don't think there's even any adapter to allow old Canon lenses (like the ones that mount on the AE-1) on Canon DSLRs. Canon did make such an adapter (now discontinued) but it did not allow infinity focusing.

After further examination of this mirror lens I see that it IS a t-mount.

Thank you for the advice.

If you modify an extension tube you'll be able to mount the macro lens & use it.

Buy a "Flange type" m42->pentax K adapter, & use it as a replacement for one of the extension tube ends.

M42 Lens to Pentax PK K100D K200D K10D K20D Adapter - eBay (item 280346194955 end time Jun-14-09 14:22:31 PDT)

Glue it or screw it on. Glue would be easiest I guess.
