If he really wanted to make some money, he should start reproducing the Adaptall KA adapter!

I recently bought a Tamron 24/2.5 because it came with an Adaptall KA adapter!

I'm pleased with both and am now looking for more "A" lenses.

PS. I had to do a little surgery on the adapter to make it work (I widened the locking pin hole a little... as received, the adapter over-rotated a bit while being mounted so showed F-- in the viewfinder.)

Hi Roy,

Merry Christmas!!! I wish someone would make one that would take Canon FD lenses. Then I could use my Primes from my SLR...

A simple adapter isn't possible for the FD's because the FD's flange-sensor distance is too short by 3.5mm.

But it is possible to modify an FD lens' mount to work on a Pentax. It involves removing the FD's flange & replacing it with a type K flange; auto stop-down can be retained.
