I'm eyeballing an adaptall 2 lens, but it doesn't come with an adaptor. Since the P-KA adapters are so expensive, and I'm not worried about using manual settings these days, I was gonna get an Adaptall-1 K-mount adapter. I've tried googling for the answer, but I haven't had any luck. Can anyone give me a straight yes or no? Thanks in advance.

Standard K-mount adapters are readily available (last I looked both B&H and Adorama had them for about $29) and these will enable you to mount an Adaptall-2 to your camera, but without the aperture information.

Don't give up in finding a K/A, though, since the ability to use the aperture setting is very useful. I bought two of mine before they got horribly expensive (about $60), but I also managed to pick up a couple attached to lenses that had been mis-identified by the sellers. One was on a lens I sold for more than the combination, so I got a K/A adapter for free plus $20 change!
