Hi, I have a couple of prime K fit lenses from my Pentax dslr including the 50mm 1.7 and a 28mm.

How are you adapting them to fit a NEX?

I ordered this cheap adaptors from ebay : http://www.ebay.com/itm/280540335179?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649
Note that I didnt receive it yet so, cannot confirm that it does or doesnt work, but according to what I've been reading around, most of these cheap adaptors will work just fine... most of the time... the quality control on these is not very good so some of them might come with defects , i've heard some people say that their adapter wasnt precisely machined and wont allow the lens to focus to infinity, also saw people complain about some of these adaptor having a little bit of debris which if not cleaned could be very bad for your sensor, but you can simply inspect it carefully and vacuum it.
