55mm vs 50mm tells me that is a M42 as well correct?

Nice shots.... what 42-K adapter are you using?

Not necessarily... Pentax did make a K 55mm f/1.8 between 1975-1977.

It doesn't get the greatest reviews, but you can buy them DIRT cheap.

55mm is an M42 Auto Takumar. 50mm is an SMC M K-mount. I use a Kalt adapter Loc-tited to the lens. That way it is about like a regular K-mount. Markings wind up at 10 o'clock as you face the camera.

Would probably sell the 55 as I like the 50 so well.

I had one and they are not that bad really. A little soft on the edges.
