K-Mount or A-Mount to E-Mount Adapters with AF?

Does anyone know if any adapters exist that will allow Aperture & AF on e-mount cameras? I was hoping to use K-Mount and A-Mount lenses. Thanks!

I'm fairly certain that there are no Pentax K to E-mount adapters that give you any sort of automation. There is something called a lens turbo, though, which increases the effective aperture while also increasing the field of view (the opposite of a teleconverter). It could be fun to try

No adapter with AF in my knowledge. But LT as suggested by adam is highly recommended, I can post pictures taken with LT+K lenses if you like (or you can see some of my past threads)

If you want to shoot Sony A-mount, sony makes A to E mount adapters that have the slt panel for autofocus.

That would be great! Also, can you tell me which model you have? There seem to be a lot of them out there.
