Pentax B Adapter M42 to K Mount in stock at Adorama
Posted By: Adam_T4, 05-03-2013, 02:56 PM

Today Adorama shipped me my genuine Pentax B Adapter to mount M42 screwmount lenses onto K mount cameras. Been hunting for one awhile now. B&H says they are discontinued and they go for up to $60 on eBay. Now I can start looking in earnest for a Helios 44 - which one was it that has the swirly boheh?

It's in stock at B&H but they want $49.95 for it!

It will probably show up on the Pentax Webstore too.

Argh, missed it! Well, maybe not a bad thing. I wanted to declare a temporary lens buying embargo anyway...

And the whole beautiful point of the adapter is to utilize the huge back catalog of M42 lens that may be found for poor man prices. This single device reclaims the PENTAX Brand as the top value leader imho .If Pentax wanted to they'd encourage this thrift by producing these in quantity and promoting the legacy glass. Pentax really wins this aspect hands down.

Look, I know I'm the "Good Cheer" guy and I just had "The Talk" and everything - but - does anyone see the irony of raising NEW lens prices 10% or 15% and simultaneously shipping 20 dozen adapters so a few people can buy 50-year-old Takumars on eBay?
