tamron adaptal mounts

this questions stems from a post on the marketplace. person is looking for an adaptal mount for a 90 mm macro.

question is: are all adaptal mounts universal to the lens or does each lens have a diferent mount? i have a tamron 24 mm with an olympus mount that i would like to correct to a pentax mount. is it just a generic adaptal pentax mount i need?

Well there's adaptall and adaptall II for starters. If Adaptall II you can get a P/K mount ot P/KA (a setting for lenses w/ an A position). One thing to keep in mind if buying used: p/KA adapters can be finicky w/ the "contacts" not lining up. Out of my 2, one needed the registration hole drilled out and backfilled to keep the "a" position stable. p/KA mounts are harder to find and expensive (relatively speaking) but there used to be a company in England that had new mounts. Not sure if they still sell them.
