I recently purchased a Canon Digital Rebel SLR. I also have a Pentax with a very nice lens that I would like to use on the Canon. Where Can I find a lens adaptor that will allow me use the Pentax lens on my Canon?

You might try B&H Photovideo. If anyone would have one, it would be them. One note of caution. Any adapter placed between the camera body and lens is going to change the focal length of the lens. It will have an affect similar to using an extension tube for macro work.

Another thing to consider is whether or not the lens is designed for auto-focus and auto exposure. If so, there are electrical contacts on the base of the lens which are different for each brand. Any kind of adapter must pass these electrical connections through from the lens to the camera body.
