Is there an Olympus OM to Pentax K-bayonet adaptor available ?

Hi there

Is it possible to use old Olympus OM-mount lenses with the Pentax K10D via a Pentax K-mount adaptor of some sort ? Clearly the OM lenses would have to be used in a fully manual fashion on the K10D.

Best regards

with only 1.5mm of leeway, I doubt you can make a bayonent adaptor. With some creativity, you might be able to say rip off the OM mount and screw on a M42 to K adapter but thats a long stretch.

Regular adapter wise, this ain't possible unless you incorporate an optical element to correct.
