You need to look for 1" (inch) lenses - they generally cover (almost) the 43 area. Which means you get minimal vignetting. You need to look at the rear diameter of the lenses as well, because many of them needs to be machined ("cut") to the small opening of the adapter - I have a 12.5mm 1.4 KOWA lens that needed a few hours of work in order to fit. But the mentioned Pentax fits straight on.

PS At least one of the lenses you mentioned is for 1/2" sensors, so it should give severe vignetting...
