May I use my 40mm lens in new mirrorless camera?

If I buy new mirrorless camera Pentax Q, may I use my lenses?

Is it possible, If possible please tell me how?

Best regards.

Even if a Q to K adaptor was available, a 40mm lens would produce the equivalent of 220mm on the Q's small sensor. Which is why I doubt such an adaptor will be made available… The end result would just be a bunch of huge (compared to the camera/native lenses) rather long lenses… Even a 21mm will end up being equivalent to 115mm or so. I guess this could solve the long side of things, in an awkward way, but in my eyes a camera like this really demands a wider lens in the lineup, not a longer one…
