No idea then. I would wager that there are more Pentax M42 and K mount available than ALPA, Contarex or Contax lenses combined, so you would think there is a reasonable business case to make a Pentax adapter.

Indeed. This observation makes me think that it would be something more "behind lack of Pentax K lens support" - not technical reason!

Anyway - Could C/Y mount modified to accept Pentax K lenses? Kind of DIY work...Flange distance is same with Pentax K and C/Y.
