Using 6x7 lens on K10D

Is there an adapter available for me to use my Pentax 6x7 lenses on my K10D? I realize I won't be able to use auto-focus, but I am curious if it's possible to mount them up.

Thanks!

Yes there is. But why other than for the novelty of it? You'll get the same results from quality manual 135 format lenses with less hassle.

It looks like some longer focal length 6x7 lenses are much cheaper than their K-mount equivalents so that's one reason why I'm interested.

I recently sold the 67 M*400/4 EDIF for less than what a similar 400 would cost if available for Pentax DSLR's. Sold it here on this forum.
Also sold the 67 M*300/4 EDIF for under $1000 here on the forum last month. Even used, you may not find a DA*300/4 below $1000.

But you can find manual focus K-mount 300/4 lenses much cheaper than 67 M* 300/4. Many of these K-mount lenses will probably perform better than this 67 lens on K-mount camera.

K-mount 400/4 lenses are difficult to find though.
