pentaxWebstore

I was just looking at the pentaxwebstore to see if they sold an m42 adapter and was surprised that they didn't have one and it didn't even come up on there search tool. Then I noticed that they do not even have the k5iis on their website and that didn't come up through their search tool either!!!!!!!
Is this for real.......?? I'm confused

The IIs should be there, but wasn't the adapter discontinued?

Only the k5ii was there but not the s version. Weird.
Looks like I might have to look elsewhere for the adapter

I believe that this adapter is flangeless, so it should work just like the Pentax one:
General Brand Pentax-K Body to Universal Lens Adapter ABPKS B&H

The Pentax one is "back ordered" but I don't think it's ever going to back into stock.

There is a "Buy Now" link at Pentax Imaging for the K-5 IIs that links to a "Not available at this time" message. That kind of thing isn't unusual for PRIAC - the K-01 wasn't on the website for literally months after it was shipping, while Canada and Europe featured it and were taking pre-orders the day it was announced.

The Mount Adapter K was discontinued about 18 months ago. There's always eBay for the genuine Pentax M42 adapter (Mount Adapter K) - pricey, though.

Plus the OP is in Australia which will probably make it even pricier.

Well, we'll see. Months ago, at B&H the item was "temporarily out of stock". Then it was "backordered" but they weren't accepting orders for it. More recently, they still list it as backordered, but they are accepting orders.
