Canon 200mm 2.8 FD on pentax K1000

I didn't found any thread about it, so I post it here.

I have a pentax k1000, and I'm looking for some good long tele prime lens, so I'm wondering if any of you had tried the 200mm 2.8 FD on the k1000.

Is there any adapter out here to use FD lens on K-mount?

Yup, there's an adapter: Zykkor Canon FD Lens to Pentax K Body Adapter: Everything Else

The lens will focus to infinity, but the effective focal length will be about 300mm because of the built-in 1.4x "correction" lens.

Here's a thread about it:
