Hi,

Has anyone heard if the Metabones would be planned speedbooster adapter for Pentax K lenses? For example Pentax K--> NEX speedbooster ?

I was forced to purchase Metabones' speedbooster for Contax/Yashica (C/Y) --> NEX adapter , because it was the only way to get my M42 lenses to work with speedbooster. But you can't adapt Pentax K lenses that way.

There are already quite a few of the old lens mount supported, but not Pentax - which I think is a bit odd.

I also know that Canon FD and Sony Alpha mount are coming later this year...

Why not ask the designer, Brian Caldwell, himself:

If you find something out please report back.

I wrote Metabones to enquire about a Pentax K to NEX adapter and this is the response:

Sorry! We have not planning to make a Pentax (speed booster)…..
Thank you!

Do not get them. There's a lot of Pentax K FF lenses on the planet...
