Got yesterday the Leica R to K mount adapter. Im wondering if it would somehow possible to make an aperture cam link to the camera.
I read somewhere that it was done for Zuikos..

Linking the cams thru the adapter would serve no purpose on Pentax DSLRs, as they do not read that information from the lens. Instead, they set the aperture directly by controlling the distance traveled by the aperture lever. The equivalent to the lens cams in Pentax cameras is the stop-down coupler, which only existed on film bodies.
