Konica to Pentax Adapter?

One of my relatives recently gave me a Konica FS-1 with a few primes. Interested in using the camera itself, but wondering if there are any quality adapters for Konica to Pentax K.

I presume the mount is the Konica F bayonet. If it is, then the registration distance is 40.5 mm, which is a lot shorter than the 45.46 mm of the Pentax K mount. As the Konica lens would have to be set back in the Pentax body, there is no way to use a straight adapter. If there was one it would have some extra glass to increase the registration distance, so the image would suffer. You can however (a) get a reversing ring and use the lenses for macro work, or (b) get a Pentax Q or an E mount body in another system and use the Konicas on that. Where there's a will, there's a way.

Alright thanks so much. I'm still definitely going to use them on the Konica camera itself, I was just wondering if there were any good options for using them on my Pentax. I might actually look into getting a reversing ring, sounds like fun.
