i think this good news for sony owner camera

MonsterAdapters is a newcomer to the lens adapter space that doesn’t appear to have its own website. Instead, the company operates almost entirely off of Facebook and Ebay (via a listing for the company’s Minolta Vectis V-mount to Sony E-mount adapter that is currently sold out). Clearly a small operation, the MonsterAdapters team has been working on a new adapter to bring full electronic control for Pentax K lenses to Sony E-mount bodies.
Announced in late October and reported on by DIY Photography, the company touts its LA-KE1 electronic adapter as the “first of its kind,” offering full autofocus, aperture control, and EXIF recording for Pentax K lenses to Sony E-mount cameras. Not only does the lens support modern K-mount lenses, but it is also equipped with dual motors for screw-drive AF lenses to be controlled electronically from the camera. That means that very old Pentax lenses that were once heralded for their quality in the film age would theoretically be able to be brought forward into the modern digital age with full modern autofocus capabilities.

Good news anyway. Sony users are big fans of legacy lenses.

This may increase the demand and drive up the prices of second hand K- mount lenses.

There was a bit of a free fall for a while on prices, that may be ok.
